Porters Wine Bar is set in the heart of Hastings’ famous Old Town, at the bottom of the High Street and just a few minutes walk from the historic fishing quarter and seafront. Established in 1986, Porters is a Grade 2 listed building which has been recently refurbished and is a very popular family-run wine bar and bistro.
Porters is renowned for its live music and features award-winning Jazz singer Liane Carroll on a regular basis; its excellent home-cooked food (locally sourced where possible) and its wide selection of beers, wines and spirits.View Menu
