Welcome to the Royal Standard

Modern pub with traditional charm

An historic pub dating back some 300 years, it’s been recently refurbished to smart modern standards - but retains traditional charm in abundance, with wooden floors, stripped-back brick walls and a cosy, inviting open fire. 

Outside, a small secluded garden awaits for summer. With a heated, covered patio, and plenty of benches dotted around the pub, it’s the ideal spot for an alfresco ale in the sea breeze.

There’s more to this place than just fine beer and cracking community spirit though. The Royal Standard flies the flag for live music in Hastings too.

Traditional pub grub

The menu here is packed with coastal classics including fisherman’s pie and a locally caught ‘catch-of-the-day’, while there’s also classic country fare in the form of shepherd’s pie, hearty stews and much more.
