This is another decent ale house on the Hastings Old town High Street. Dating from 1851 when it opened on the site of the Bell, an old Hastings Inn dating back to the Reformation of 1600, this two-room pub is named after a famous mid-19th-century Swedish opera singer for reasons I couldn’t ascertain. The long and roomy front bar has a bit of an ale house vibe about it, with limited seating and plenty of space for vertical drinking and then the back bar is warmer and cosier with a real fire and a bar billiards table tucked into one section. Beyond this is a terraced garden behind the pub which would be a pleasant spot on better days than the one we experienced.
The front bar supports an impressive row of 10 ale pumps, but closer inspection reveals that the house ales of Longman Best Bitter and GK Abbott were doubled up with one on and one with a coming soon tag, then an additional coming soon label and one reverse clipped meant there was actually six ales available. These included Longman Session Pale Ale and Wantsum Brewery Black Pig alongside the house ales.

Not a particularly attractive pub externally but more interesting inside, a long front bar with servery to match and a smaller more intimate room to the rear. I didn't note all the beers whilst there but there was plenty of choice, my choice was a very acceptable Pig & Porter Jumping Frog. The pub experience was a little dulled by the Covid rules but obviously a very good pub.

A decent sized pub this one comprising of a long front bar, with a raised area at the far end along with a fireplace, this section also had an old petrol pump displayed in the right hand corner. The back lounge also had another fireplace and a bar billiards table. Eight ales and two ciders to choose from on our visit. The only slight problem was waiting to get served on our Friday lunchtime visit. There were two barmaids on duty and both of them were trying to light the fires, one girl in the back lounge and the other digging out the ashes from the fireplace in the front bar. Both of them seemed oblivious to customers waiting at the bar. When we eventually got served we went for the Franklin's Lawless and a Black Cherry Mild, I have to say the beers were worth waiting for.
