For visitors, it's a wonderful place for a weekend or more. Here are the folky pubs and The Stade, the ancient landing place where fishing boats surf onto shore like seals, coming to rest on twin bilges instead of flippers. Here are the plastic buckets and spades, the candyfloss, the World Championship Crazy Golf course, the cliff lifts and tiny steam train. But here too are set designers, metal sculptors and muralists, the DFLs (Down From Londons) with stellar careers past or current, who have opened homeware emporia, clothes shops and art spaces.
Here is the Hastings Contemporary, it is 'reborn as , 20th century British art, the contemporary architecture blending with its seafront location. Here is a conference centre in a converted Regency church jammed into the cliffs, and Hastings Pier, burned down in 2010 but now renovated and won the National Piers Society's Pier Of The Year in 2017. Hastings and Saint Leonards defiantly has a lot to offer anyone coming to visit.
We provide dinner for groups of between 6 and 12 in our dining room. A menu is agreed in advance and guests must bring their own drinks. Rates at the moment are £40 per person and we do not charge corkage. Guests gather in the drawing room for drinks and canapes, and then move into the candlelit dining room and are served with a 3 course meal. Then they 'withdraw' to the drawing room for coffee and chocolates. Often guests will dress in Victorian style.
``I attended a friends birthday party dinner back in November and was completely blown away by this magical world and had no idea it was right next door to me! Every bit of the interior is draped in luscious fabrics, with original tile floors, chandeliers and curios galore! So many things to look at - it's like being in a museum! The service was incredible as was the yummy food! It was such a memorable experience that when my mother was visiting recently - we did it again. And the new people who came marveled at the ambiance, just as I did on my first visit. This is my new tradition - fancy dress up catered party round the neighbors - well worth every penny!” - Tiff M
