A good brewpub that does generally good own brews and a few guest beers too. A must visit if in the area. Usually a good atmosphere in this ancient part of Hastings. Hosts a beer festival once/twice a year. Used to brew on site, now brews a few doors up the road which helped to expand slightly.

We visited here Saturday 4th May, probably 15-18 years since our last visit. There was a beer festival on, so the usual 4-5 handpumps were supplemented by a further 10-12 beers on gravity. I had a FILO porter which was v.decent however the Dark Star Carafa Jade and Oakham Inferno were the best that we had here. The pub was swelled by the fact that ’Jack in the Green’ Folk/Morris festival was taking place. It is a small but pleasant pub on the High Street in the old town, the bar is to the right as you enter. A good pub any time of the year but I reckon it would come into its own in the winter months.

A short walk away from the seafront up the High Street, once there you’ll find a single room front facing pub serving a selection of its own premises brewed ales and a guest. In the middle of the room a purpose built central open log fire provides a warming smokey (in an open fire sense) atmosphere. The walls are artex but there’s some fake wood supports to give it the place an older feel, the rough wooden furniture that accompanies this compliments that.

Decent Brewpub in the older part of town. A locals type bar. Generally a couple of FILO beers available. A decent comfortable pub in a town lacking many of these.

A good, old-fashioned pub. Crowded even on a Monday evening, with 3 of their own beers plus a guest. Good service and atmosphere and friendly locals.

2010-07-31. Front of the house is a fairly traditional small pub. Back room is kind of a ghetto garage like area with picnic tables. Taps included two of their own and a couple of guest taps. Beers were okay. We had a fairly quick visit it in the back room as the front area was packed on a busy day in the summer. I suspect its more laid back and enjoyable when it is not the school holidays in England. Worth a visit if you are in town, but I wouldn’t go out of my way. Other pubs in town seemed to have as good or better cask options based on our looks in the windows :)

Visited back in September 2007 during an afternoon pub crawl. Situated on a quiet little street (near the Rock Shoppe, a favourite old haunt when we used to visit my grandparents), the pub has that small-but-cosy feel to it, and you can look downstairs through the back to the tanks. Service was friendly, considering I plonked my wheelie suitcase down in front of the fireplace shortly followed thereafter by myself at the bar. Four interesting rotating taps available, I tried two and wanted more but had to make my way over to the hotel. Location is easy to find and central between the shops and the sea. Unfortunately they could not serve me food before dinnertime. Overall, I would definitely visit it again if I were in the area.
