My 'senior' aunt asked for a sandwich and was told they only had what was on the menu but that the bruschetta was similar to a sandwich. She had that and a hot chocolate while I had a a cranberry juice and hummus platter. Service was prompt but there weren't many other customers as it was post carnival Monday
My aunt said the bruschetta was tasty but it was covered with melted cheese so not quite as expected.
My hummus was not creamy smooth - which I prefer - and served with a variety of olives and warmed wholemeal-y bread. Both nice snacks and perfect for supper after a guided walk through the old town
Lovely clean tidy loos too.

This place has been going for years and has got it right.The food is consistanly good over the years I have never had a bad meal.Although the menu is limited there is always something tasty and prices are very reasonable with a good selection of wines.The lunctime menu is different and the fish cakes are to die for. The staff are very friendly and service is excellent.In the summer there is a pretty outside seating area but its lovely and cosy in the winter.There is oftern live music which is worth a visit especially if Leon Carrol is playing piano.
Porters is one of the best places in Hastings and well worth a visit

I used to go to Porters quite a bit but after a couple of bad meals I started to steer clear. This was a good few years ago and I've been back twice recently and have been really impressed with the food.
I've tried their mussels - delicious, the plaice - scrummy, and the Moroccan tagine dish - super flavoursome. Another of the menu highlights is the fillet steak which comes out on a hot plate so you can finish it off exactly the way you like it and choose your own seasoning too.
In the summer it's lovely to sit out in the garden and during weekends the bar area quite often has live music too. The only downside is that the service definitely slides with very large parties as they have a habit of serving smaller tables first.
I popped back for lunch on another occasion and had the jerk chicken salad. It took a while to arrive (they were pretty busy) but when it did it was delicious and only cost about a fiver. A much better meal than you could get from most other local restaurants at the price.
So if you're in Hastings any time soon, check out Porters.
