The café will honour the castle’s history and the Crane family’s links with the castle and Hurst Spit by featuring items of the castle’s heritage. These links include Jason’s grandfather, William Crane, who was castle keeper from 1956 and his uncle, Peter Hobby, the last castle lighthouse keeper at Hurst from 1952-1989.

The café will be run by the current Hurst Castle chefs – Jesse Wells, formerly of La Perlé and Verveine in Milford on Sea and Alex Cumming of Stanwell House. It will offer modern, fresh, seasonal food from a selection of meze style salads, sandwiches, bagels, soups and daily specials, offering customers the best of what is in season.

Owner of Hurst On The Hill, Jason Crane said: “I’m passionate about Hurst, food and our local community so when the opportunity came up to open a café in the heart of the village, I decided to go for it. Our food will all be about the flavour at realistic prices for everyone to enjoy.”

There are also future plans to open the café as a private dining experience for small parties, offering seasonal tasting menus.

The café will be open to the public from Wednesday 16th November from 9am and will open seven-days-a week from 9am to 4.30pm.

Pop in for a leisurely light meal or to grab something quick if you’re on the go. You can enjoy café style coffee, pastries or Alex’s renowned cakes, or at breakfast or lunchtime find a range of sandwiches, bagels, soups and meze style salads to choose from, topped with fish, cheese or meat. Why not even try to make time one day to devour one of Jesse’s legendary Club Sandwiches!
