One of the Best Known Meeting Places in Hastings
One of the features of Hastings Old Town is it’s famous Tavern, Ye Olde Pump House. It is situated at the heart of George Street and is the ‘local’ of many Old Town characters, who go a long way to enhance the special atmosphere of the bar.
George Street has been the favourite haunt of artists, fishermen, sailors, smugglers and even pirates in its long history.
Today, in the pubs, clubs and bars there are many locals able to tell tales of the sea that will ‘curl your hair’. Holiday makers from all over Britain return to Hastings year after year, and for some, the first port of call is the Old Town, where many have made good friends on previous visits.
