Great lunch

Went on a weekday afternoon and the kitchen was about to shut, so the barman/waiter rushed our order through. We had the local mackerel, hummous and a ham sandwich all of which was fantastic ;) great work, keep it up ;)

Located in the heart of Old Town Hastings, this unassuming pub has many hidden surprises inside. From the cosy pub/dining atmosphere at the front, to the spacious and cosy dining area at the back. To top it all...they service the best chips in Hastings and the Guinness goes down a treat. Well worth a visit if you are visiting Hastings.

We were very pleasantly surprised to find this pub now has a restaurant serving excellent meals. The service was friendly and efficient, dining area very clean and comfortable. Changes to meals to accommodate a dairy free requirement was easily arranged. Our meals were delicious. We will certain visit the FILO again.

A great little pub. The FILO has it's own brewery out the back and serves some wonderful beers, lagers and ciders. Food at lunchtimes only (I've not eaten there). The central fireplace is wonderful on a cold winter's evening. I've always found it to be a friendly place. Can get very busy. Occasional music.

I dropped in one afternoon while wandering around the Old Town, knowing there was an excellent range of ales. Several FILO beers (5 I think) were on, as well as one guest ale. Food is served at lunchtimes and from 6pm, and the menu was fairly small but quite interesting-looking; but bar snacks are also served out of these hours.... More

This pub was recommended to us by the proprietor of the B&B we stayed in. The food was nice and the service good. An unexpected surprise was the live band (we were there on a Tuesday evening). It was lovely, double bass, violin, etc. Felt like Downton Abbey! Would eat here again.

We were in the Old Town of Hastings looking for a place for a light lunch. We discovered this just by chance. It's up the old High Street and it's a gem. Never thought I'd come across craft ales, this is Shepherd Neame country - nothing wrong with that, but they brew 6 of their own ales. I didn't try... More

Loved it here. Unique beers just brewed for the pub. Food was gorgeous, freshly cooked and decent sized portions. Glad we got there at 6pm as it got pretty full pretty quickly. Will be returning soon.

The FILO is a real gem of a pub that brews it's own beer. Always well worth a visit and their prices are reasonable too!
