Lovely lunch today at Hendy's, in the Old Town, Hastings.

Started with crab paste on toast and
celeriac, tarragon and brown shrimp
- both fresh, simple and delicious.
Followed by mackerel and plaice (in the sun) with a bottle of rose.
Dessert was coconut and strawberry ice. Bliss in the sunshine.

One of the best kept secrets in Hastings
but not many covers so do book.
Whelk shells in old iron tub 

Plaice with herbs

Mackerel with herbs
The menu, simple food cooked beautifully
