Royal Standard, Hastings

Royal Standard

The Royal Standard is a handsome building – dating back about 300 years – situated in the picturesque old town area of Hastings close to the sea. It is traditionally furnished, with wooden floors, stripped back brick walls and inviting open fire.

You will find a friendly welcome in this community minded pub, from both the staff and locals, and it is a popular place with tourists in the summer; the pub has won awards for its well kept ales, you can enjoy a good old-fashioned game of shove hapenny - quite rare these days - and there is a small secluded garden with a heated, covered patio area for smokers.

The area has close associations with the services, with some interesting memorabilia on display depicting the forces and the fire brigade. The bar has a quirky illustration of the flooding to which the area is prone – historical flood levels in the pub are marked on the bar, the most recent being 2007.
