Fagins Diner, The Old Town, Hastings

Cracking little restaurant in the heart of the Old Town, serving a wide variety of tasty dishes, something to suit everyone, and in most relaxed surroundings, with exemplary service. Recommended


Hastings Old Town

Steeped in history, The Old Town in Hastings is an absolute joy, with pubs, restaurants and bars aplenty, and some of the best fish and chips to be found.

The local fisherman are a nice bunch and sell their daily catch, fresh off the boats, from their huts at Rock-a-Nore, with Webbes Restaurant serving the finest freshly prepared seafood dishes. Jellied eels, cockles and whelks easily found also.

In centuries past, smugglers abounded here, and the little alleyways, and architecture make it easy to imagine that you have stepped in to a different era.

The locals remain a superstitious lot, and most proud of this area’s historical significance, with some wonderful festivals and carnivals held annually, including Jack in the Green  which is an incredible spectacle, bringing the whole town to life. Not to be missed.

Fabulous headland walks and views too


May Day Hastings Bike Run

Wonderful biking event held on May Bank Holiday, whereupon 1000s of bikers head to Hastings from all directions, and culminating in a truly spectacular gathering of motorcyclists and their machines. It’s got to be seen to be believed.

Original event started 38 years ago, and traditionally it was London based bikers heading down to the seaside for a day out. The earliest runs involved a mass meeting of bikers at Locksbottom in Kent, and then riding in formation down to Hastings.

The tradition holds fast and there remains a significant number of bikers meeting at Locksbottom early in the morning, and riding the A21 route, but now with crowds lining the pavements and much cheering, waving and hooting going on all around.

Once at the seafront, there is live music, trade stands and British Superbike Racing displayed on the large screens.

The event coincides with the culmination of the 3 day Jack in the Green festival, and celebrations continue well in to the night. A fabulous day for the town


Route 1066 Café
