Booked a table for two early evening on a Wednesday.
A nicely situated table mid way, that was near the AC heater.
Very well looked after by the super efficient Diane and her crew.
Dined on Oysters and Mussels for starters. Salmon special and Hake for the mains.
Very commendable how they get the fish so succulent, juicy and flavourful.
Crème Brulee, Raspberries and Ice cream for a sweet.
Peroni and Pinot to accompany.
The restaurant was spotless, and it had a good buzz about it, even though it was not full.
Paul Webbe, the owner, certainly has got it just right.
We will return.

Fresh Oysters at Webbs! What a treat! Great service and lots of choice on the menu. Fresh fish. My only qualm was the restaurant was rather chilly. Otherwise an excellent evening

Upon the realisation it was going to take us hours to get out of the Rock-a-Nore car park, we decided to find a place to have tea instead to kill some time.

We wandered down the road and decided to try our luck at Webbe's; and luck was on our side! We managed to get a table in the warm and friendly establishment just as they were taking last orders for lunch before closing to prepare for dinner.

There was plenty to choose from to tailor to our varying tastebuds. I selected the spring veggie risotto; my mum settled on the breaded plaice and hubby opted for the wild boar snags & mashed potatoe. All meals arrived hot and devoured as quickly as they arrived; filling our bellies with warmth and deliciousness!!

Our ploy to avoid the wait in the car park paid off and we were grateful for the pleasant distraction before heading home.

Thank you to the team at Webbe's for squeezing us in; providing warmth and serving wonderful food with a smile! We would certainly visit again if ever in Hastings!

Tried Webbe's and was pleasntly surprised at the quality and service! The fish being landed a hundred yards away is so fresh and the sauces are just perfect- they do not overwhelm the flavour of the fish.
But first, service- contrary to some reviews the staff were polite and couteous and not that over-attentive fussiness that you can get elsewhere. How refreshing.
The food is just superb, try the 'taster' tapas style dishes- we had smoked cod fishcakes, calamari and crab arancini- all delicious. Main courses, the Hake with chorizo potatoes was fantastic and my partners dover sole really good. The baby potatoes were delicious how anyone can think they cane out of a tin is laughable!
All in all a great experience, we'll be back...

We went for dinner and had a lovely meal! Delicious tiger prawns, squid, Dover sole and plaice. All generous portions, fresh and tasty. Good service. It was mid week but still busy with a nice atmosphere! Mid range price but generous portions and worth it.
