3rd visit here with friends, great range of beers and wines, recycled furniture that is so inviting to sit back and enjoy the atmosphere, music, people or food. If in Hastings this place should be on your list to visit.

I had the mushrooms with houloumi cheese. The mushrooms were very tasty with lovely herbs. We also had a plate of cheesy jalepenos were not too over the top hot. Good value for money.

Come to this oasis in the woeful Hastings bar scene. Veeery quirkily kitted out over all, with some comfy intimate places, and with a good selection of local beers on tap. I think they serve food, but there was too much to take in on...More

Heard there was live jazz happening on a Thursday night. Unfortunately there weren't many to enjoy a great trio but I did. Good selection of local beer & wine, only down side was the small selection of food available.
