Summary of Beer Scores


The pub is found in Hastings, East Sussex, TN34 3BE.

A pub in the Old Town with ancient origins, this house was established as the Chequers in around 1642 and was renamed the Cinque Ports Arms Inn in 1827. The pub was pretty much destroyed by a fire in 1929 and was rebuilt in the mock-Tudor style we see today. Much wood-panelling inside, there are rooms on two floors Ė the upstairs bar is called the Chequers Bar in deference to the pubís earlier name.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 2 different beers and tried 1 of them.
