Real Ale Ray left this review about The Jolly Fisherman

The original pub was established in 1769 and closed in 1959 and became a café. The new owners reopened as a micro pub in 2016. This micro does have a certain charm about it and we found it to be very comfortable. The small bar had a line of taps along the back of the bar, offering a choice of 5 cask beers and 5 craft beers. There were four cask beers on our visit, with another due to go on. The cask choice was Old Dairy Fuggle Bitter, Wylam Cascasde, McCanns Janet Street and Thornbridge Verde. We went for the two green hopped ales, which were Old Dairy and Thornbridge, both of which were superb. The owner and his wife were very friendly and welcoming. We really liked it here and it was a good place to start on a crawl around old Hastings.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Jolly Fisherman

Beachfront micro-pub, with a few small tables and a couple of higher benches crammed into square room with a very compact counter. A few old photographs of the fishing boats and the beach hang on the walls, otherwise the appearance is fairly rustic. Friendly welcome. Ten taps on the bar-back, dispensing three cask ales (including the Red Willow Effortless, £3.70), a couple of craft keg beers and a brace of ciders.

I was the only customer in the Jolly Fisherman when I vsisted on a recent Friday afternoon after work. The small interior is decked out with wooden tables of varying heights and there is a small serving area at the rear. There is no draught beer, but there are craft beer options in a fridge at the rear. I plumped for a bottle of Burning Sky Saison a la Provision which set me back £5. A variety of home made food is available and most dishes are priced under £10. I found the service to be very friendly and it was nice to have a livener before hitting the more traditional hostelries of Hastings. I enjoyed my visit, but one beer was enough.
