TV

We are about to appear on Channel 4’s new TV series Hidden Restaurants presented by Michel Roux Jr. Last summer, Michel joined Alastair Hendy in his packed-out kitchen at A G Hendy & Co to lend a hand in the cooking of our stunning Shellfish Pot. The two of them also visited the local fishing fleet, the winch sheds and Rock-a-Nore Fisheries – singing the praises of brushes, flatfish and crab.

Tudor House Open - 15th October

Drumming, marching, sinister costumes and burning torches once again take over the smoke-filled streets of Hastings - and then come the Black Bogies, pulling pitch-fired carts. This is Hastings Bonfire Night Parade. It’s as if the ghost ships of the The Spanish Armada have landed, delivering a sea faring, tattered and war-torn army of the undead into the dimly lit passageways of the Old Town. Start this dramatic evening with a silent visit to 135 All Saints Street, which will be set-dressed with log fires burning, candles lit, and the wraiths of its mortuary past haunting its darkest reaches. Once the East Hill beacon is lit, the old house will close its door and the drums will begin. Then, with the smell of tar on the wind, 21st century Hastings is hurled into the centuries of its history, succumbing to a dark and magical night. Read more...

Rag & Bone

Welcome to our Steptoe & Son collection of vintage finds arranged flea market style on our shopfront pavement. My mum roared with laughter through the 60s at tv's sitcom Steptoe & Son, while I was more transfixed by the glorious piles of furniture, papers, taxidermy and dark curiosities that propped up their home in Oil Drum Lane, Shepherds Bush. Rag & Bone has new credentials: the everyday is now special and the utilitarian desirable.  Read more...
