According to the Sussex World website written by Andy Hemsley “Hastings Old Town pub celebrates after being voted best in East Sussex – The Stag Inn in Hastings Old Town has been named a county winner in this year’s National Pub and Bar Awards.” The piece can be obtained from here and some of the text is below. Another website that describes the Stag Inn is the tripadvisor which includes this piece from Nic that is also set out below.
So first of all the initial part of the Sussex World document:
The historic Shepherd Neame pub, which is run by licensee Nicole Holt and her husband Nick, was the winner in East Sussex alongside 93 other county winners across the country in the annual awards.
They will all now go forward to the Grand Final of the awards in June, with a Regional and National award up for grabs. The aim of these awards is to highlight the positive and inspiring work being carried out across the UK’s hospitality industry.
And here is the tripadvisor piece:
The oldest pub in Hastings, we are a small, family run, 16th century inn with separate dining room, landscaped gardens and log burning stoves. We welcome dogs throughout the pub. We have a range of real ales and lagers and a wide range of spirits. We stock a number of gins, many of which are local and do a hot G&T in winter. Our food is freshly prepared with a close to zero waste philosophy and a varied menu developed by our chef, Benjamin Cumberpatch and we are very proud that we have been awarded an AA Rosette. You can also find us in The Good Food Guide. We hold a Monday night quiz, an Open Folk session on Tuesdays and Americana / Bluegrass session on Wednesdays, plus bands most weekends. We hold a Laughing Stag Comedy Club every 6 weeks or so. All of our entertainment is free, but we accept donations to Hastings Foodbank if you fancy bringing something along. Please see ‘events’ on our website, Facebook or Instagram for more details. We’d love you to visit us. Nic. x
