Food scene

Good quality, independent favourites. Slightly coffee / cake obsessed :)
Judges Bakery on The High Street in Hastings! Worth visiting just for this bakery. A lovely walk over the West Hill, enjoy the view and stock up on baked goods. Then head up to Storm Coffee! Ask for the cinnamon buns. Get there early on the weekend. The queues are longest at 10am and after that the goodies are gone!

A lovely coffee shop, especially if you love books. Check out the sister shop on Robertson Street (the other side of the house, towards the skate park) which is a little quieter.

A local takeaway 3 minutes walk from the house that does excellent thin crust pizza. Perfect if you arrive late and need fuel or any other time!

Head to the top of the High Street in Old Town. For people who take their coffee seriously! Lovely, cute coffee shop to take away or have in. Cake too!

A go- to restaurant for special meals like birthdays. Maybe it’s the white linen tablecloths, smart waiting staff and fantastic owner. Food is great too and generous portions. Outdoor tables in summer offer good people watching if you can get one. Reservations usually necessary.

Good quality coffee and cake. Well run with cool decor. A bit of a shame that the better known Hanushka II next door dwarfs it so please give it a go!

A local independent hub. Come and watch the skaters and the cool kids! Good for family and adults. Are expanding outside to include a bar, pizza oven, gallery and shops. It’s a fun place to hang out in summer outside.

Fantastic, original creations for visitors looking for art (and maybe something to take home!) I have been hankering after some of their works for a while!

It’s a cafe, gallery and cinema rolled into one. Do lovely classical music “coffee mornings” some Sundays and some other musical gatherings. Worth a visit!

Sightseeing

Lots of visitors try paddle boarding in Hastings. Why not give it a go?! Popular spot for surfers and boarders is just before the pier (east side).

Pubs

Fun pub with lots of events organised. Some seriously good bar snacks…
A favourite local pub. Get there early if you want a table as no bookings taken. They also have a micro sourdough operation from the bar. Again, get there early as it sells out quickly. A lovely little road to explore and walk off your lunch, especially if you head up behind the pub to Tackleway / up to the East Hill. Or maybe just one more drink at the Stag Inn at the other end of the road.
