One of three Shepherd Neame pubs on George Street in close proximity. This one is more geared up for food with its upright seating and wooden tables suitable for dining, however it is still a pub and is still a fine place to enjoy a drink only. The decor is nautical and concentrates on celebrating the local fishing industry which survives in Hastings despite no harbour. The bar welcomes you as you enter and there are few small defined areas to sit in, or the garden area out back. Shepherd Neame ales are the norm.
