We (me, Loz, Isobel & Berry the dog) visited here on Sunday 4th May 2014. I am unsure quite how this deserves to be sat at the top of the rankings with FILO when there are at least 4-5 pubs that spring to mind as being far better options than this, perhaps it used to be good. This is another pub situated close to the seafront and the front of the pub like the dolphin is a suntrap so if the currant bun is out forget trying to bag a seat outside. Around the side is a table (in shade) and out the back a small garden area with seating, though it all looked rather grubby with tables unclean and just a general untidy look which spilled into the interior, I accept that on such days pubs will be busy and staff stretched but none of the other pubs which were equally as busy looked as grubby. The beer choice was fairly average for a Shepherd Neame pub, Spitfire, Kent Invicta Best and if course being Jack in the Green they had the Jack in the Green ale on which was probably the best choice. I guess my rating will see this place settle into a more realistic placing amongst the Hastings choices.....Good!

Opposite the Lord Nelson as well as the fishing fleet that frequent the beach of the Old Town area, this is the smallest of the four Shepherd Neame pubs within 100 metres of each other. Depending on whether it is in season or the time of day this place can be deserted or bustling. Inside you’ll get a a selection of the brewer’s ales and possibly a couple more. There’s some intriguing photographs of Victorian or early 20th century Hastings on the wall, and one above the open fire shows a curious ’Mohawk Minstrels’ advertisement for a show on the pier which has the locals interest. If you come on the right night you’ll find live music here.

Visited late on a Monday night in January, but we’ve enjoyed many a pint here before in this great local pub. The guy who runs it has vast knowledge about ships and the navy, especially during WWII (he knows all the ships that came to harbour, plus his father was on several), and has filled every possible space on the walls and ceiling with old flags, photographs, and general sea knick-knacks and paraphernalia that make you feel almost like you’re in the keel of an old ship. Eight taps are usually on, with a selection of Shepard Neame’s on cask (eg. Kent’s Best, Late Red, Spitfire, Whitstable, Master Brew, etc.) and a guest tap or two (something Swiss). This is one of my favourite pubs in England for sentimental reasons, with the added bonuses of being within walking distance of FILO, the only brewpub in town, and being practically on top of the sea. Fresh seafood is usually available at nearby stalls in the summer during the day.
