Located on Church Hill in the heart of Milford on Sea, you’ll find Hurst On The Hill, a contemporary café from Hurst Castle keeper, Jason Crane, who opened the café in 2016 to celebrate the castle’s history and its connection with his own family for more than 60 years.

In charge of the kitchen is Jesse Wells, known locally for his passion for food and has previously worked for Verveine and La Perle in Milford on Sea, as well as Simon Rogan at the 2 Michelin star L’Enclume restaurant in Cumbria.

Hurst On The Hill offers modern, fresh, seasonal food to sit in or take out and is open from 9am seven-days-a-week for a leisurely breakfast or to grab something quick on the go.  Enjoy café style coffee, pastries and cakes or at lunchtime your favourite sandwich can be made up for you to eat in or take out. Our food is all about the flavour at realistic prices in relaxed and friendly surroundings.

Also join us for one of our Pop Up Evenings where you can enjoy Jesse’s flavoursome creations at £25 per person for a three-course meal or you can hire out the whole café with a group of friends or family for a spot of private dining.
