Stag Inn, Hastings

Welcome to the Stag Inn, Hastings

Heading the herd of historic Hastings pubs, The Stag has served the Old Town community since 1547.

Fabulous atmosphere tucked away in a quaint side street

Well this was a little pearl of a find. Checked in on Sunday for a roast; my friend had some starter nibbly things - fishcakes and some lovely dips. And a most splendid meal it was too :-) The hosts were friendly and efficient, even in all the rush - and it was VERY busy. Happily, in spite of this the ambience lends itself to having a conversation and if it didn't you could always escape to the secret gardens behind the restaurant, which has lovely views. Hope to be back soon!

The Stag

Nestled beneath the East Hill on the edge of Hastings Old Town, The Stag Inn is a centuries-old local serving tradition with a twist.

With its Tudor oak-beamed ceiling, hops above the bar and a stone-arched fireplace dating from 1547, it’s the archetypal cosy village pub - but tasty twists like a Balinese menu and characterful fixtures including two ‘mummified’ cats make sure there’s a few surprises in store.

Loved by locals, The Stag is the home of community entertainment, and there’s plenty of live music to enjoy here over a perfectly poured pint. On Tuesdays, there’s an open English Folk session, Wednesdays bring Bluegrass music, and there are song sessions on the first and third Thursday of each month too.

If it’s just peace and quiet you’re after, there are plenty of cosy corners to snuggle into - or you can head out into the pub’s unique three-tiered garden for some solitude in the sun! With a lovely patio, picnic tables and a newly planted orchard at the top, it’s the perfect place to while away an hour or several in summer.

Add a private function room for parties, WiFi for working lunches and fantastic food that caters for all, and it’s not hard to see why The Stag heads the herd of pubs in Hastings Old Town!
