From Historical Hastings

There have been no fewer than five 'Wimpy Bars' in the Hastings area since the early 1960s. Wimpy itself was an American brand introduced to the UK by Lyons, starting with the Lyons Corner House at Coventry Street in London. The bars in Hastings were at Pelham Place, 20 Queen's Road and George Street with two others in Bexhill. Burger King later merged with Wimpy resulting in about half of them being re-branded until a management buy-out ensured the name remains, although there are now less than 80 stores in the UK, the nearest being at Peacehaven.[1]
