Half Man! Half Burger! Hastings

A touch of the hipster

A touch of the hipster

Harry Wills

Hastings, which has reportedly been named “third coolest seaside town in Britain”, is now home to a variety of independent restaurants which are becoming ever more popular. One such restaurant is Half Man! Half Burger!, a gourmet burger restaurant located in Marine Court, normally somewhere I’d say was reserved for beardy hipsters!
As expected you can’t book a table, but the wait isn’t quite the same as those in London. Once seated on one of the communal bare wood tables, you are presented with water with a slice whilst you peruse the menu. On offer is a selection of burgers, chilli fries, sides and desserts, with very tasty options for veggies and vegans too (not my usual dining companions...). Their burger patties are made from grass fed local cattle, whist their buns are freshly hand made by local bakery Judges.
The staff are attentive and the atmosphere relaxed and child friendly. It has been a great hit in the town and I can see why, I have repeatedly returned here with both friends and family. It’s a touch of the hipster but with atmosphere appropriate for a seaside town in Hastings!
