Welcome to the Hastings Arms, Hastings

Great beer, great food and a great welcome in the Old Town

View our sample dishes

An 18th century smuggling haunt, tucked away in the back streets, the Hastings Arms is a warm and welcoming retreat, with scrubbed pine tables and wooden floors and walls festooned with grand mirrors and fishing nets. We were voted Shepherd Neame tenanted pub of the year in 2011.

You'll find delicious home-made food and a wide range of Kentish Ales on offer here daily, spiced up each Tuesday by the pub’s famous curry nights.

If you're a music lover, you'll love our great music nights. There's a diverse crowd here for the Monday blues nights and Wednesday open mic session for professional musicians, even drawing famous visitors such as Jamie Oliver and Erasure’s Andy Bell.

And for those who prefer spirits, there are occasional sightings of ghosts supping ale at the bar and a forlorn lost soul floating by in her wedding dress.

We all look forward to welcoming you soon...
