Probably the top angling club in East Sussex

Opening Times: Tuesday to Sunday 11am to 10pm

Closed Mondays


Nibbles on the Bar on Sundays!

2pm – Meat Raffle

Between 3 & 5pm – Snowball Draw

The Snowball Draw is based on membership numbers so if you are in the bar when it’s drawn and your membership number comes up, you’re a winner! But you need to be in the club to win.

We regret that Taylor’s Cafe at the Club has now closed. We thank Jackie, Terry and Andrea for sticking it out for the last couple of years, which included two lock-downs, and wish them well for the future.

We haven’t yet decided how or when we will re-open the Tea Bar. We have lots of ideas but will let you know as soon as we can.


Some good fishing !

125th Anniversary in 2020!

See About Us for more info on the history of the Club

We are an active, family friendly boat & beach angling club with over 600 members. With various membership options, a wide variety of entertainment and a great food bar, we have something for everyone.

The club has a keen beach angling, boat angling and social community. Our members come from all walks of life and can offer help and advice if required.

The club is wheelchair accessible throughout, although the boatyard can be a bit tricky but there’s usually someone around to give a helping hand.

Hastings uniquely offers a great variety of activities and the fishing is good. 

You will be in good company in this friendly club.

Membership fees are very reasonable and one membership includes a partner and children.

For boat owners, we can accommodate boats up to 23 feet in length in our secure compound provided they are fitted with beach keels, as boats are beach launched. We have workshops for boat maintenance and secure storage areas for outboard engines and fishing gear.
