quote local photographer Fraser Carr Miles from our Homegrown
issue, “Hastings doesn’t need an excuse to dress up and drink”.
After a few days of wining and dining around this edgy East Sussex
enclave, that sentiment rings true. While the town excels at the
nostalgic coastal fare we all know, love and crave, like proper
fish and chips (doused in salt and tangy, lip-smacking vinegar),
its farm-to-table restaurants and atmospheric wine bars stand up.
First-up on our next foray? Farmyard, of course. We’ll be
ordering Colchester Rocks’ oysters, sustainably sourced beef
tartare and local asparagus with a zippy glass of Baglio Bianco, a
low intervention Sicilian white with gusto.
