Webbe's Rock-a-Nore

Our Old Town fish restaurant has one of the shortest ingredient journeys in Britain!
About a minute across the beach from the boats!

We're so pleased to be able to offer you the experience of eating a range of carefully prepared fresh fish dishes from the Hastings & Rye fleets at source.

Opened in the summer of 2009, there can be few restaurants in the country where you could eat fresher fish. Webbes Rock a Nore is an enviable location opposite the net huts and boats of the historic and picturesque Hastings fishing quarter of The Stade. With fish and seafood caught daily in small boats, and a journey of a minute across the shingle to the kitchen on arrival, this restaurant offers a unique experience for all pockets and tastes.

The tempting taster menu is a great place to start and with a selection of dishes at £3.95 each you could afford to try several.

Other sample dishes include seafood platters, locally smoked fish, Potted Crab, Grilled Dover Sole with Samphire and Winkle Sauce, Steamed Flounder with Mussel and Cider Sauce and classic dishes like Cod in Beer Batter with Hand Cut Chips, Gratinated Native Lobster, Ox Cheek and Oyster Pie. Not forgetting prime cut steaks.

For a special adventure you can even try a Fish Cookery School Morning and get hands on. You will visit the Fish Market on the beach opposite the restaurant with your chef and choose from the days catch then learn how to prepare it and enjoy the reward of a leisurely lunch afterwards.
