Last minute change of plan

On Saturday night we had made plans to eat somewhere else but found they had stopped serving food for the night. Someone at the bar suggested that the FILO might be an option that would still be serving foodand would allow the dog in. I ran up the road to check. It was such a welcoming pub, and... read more

Ducked in out of the storm and didn't want to leave. Soporific fire place added to the reluctance! Dining room is well planned offering comfort and privacy. As for the food.... what a treat.

We love Hastings Old Town. A stroll down George Street or the Old High Street is always a treat. There is always something going on. Always something new to look at. A highlight always is to pop in to the FILO, in the High Street. Great beers brewed ( try Old Tom - my favourite) in their own brewery, great... More

Really lovely meal, menu is quite small but good choice of specials. Starters and mains were delicious and accompanied by good wine and local ales. Well worth a visit.

Entering this homely pub immediately felt great. We were taken straight through to the small delightful dining room and enjoyed an excellent meal using local seafood. The crab tart is really good.

A special mention has to be said when one of our party is vegetarian & celiac the chef provided 3 main meal choices in a matter of minutes. The dining area was a... More

This beautiful old pub is absolutely full of character with a huge array of real ales.At the back of the building is a restaurant with seating alcoves & many candles giving a wonderful ambiance. The food is absolutely delicious, plenty to choose from, well cooked & presented. The staff are very friendly. Highly recommended.

Visited on a Saturday lunchtime during a beer festival (by accident!). Friendly owner, great real ales including those from its own microbrewery (the FILO Brewing Company - now situated just up the road but originally in the pub). Judging by the number of people eating must have a good reputation for food but we were just there for a drink.... More
