Have you heard of tastecard? You could save 50% on your meal!
Tastecard is an app and service that helps you find and save on eating at restaurants. Some users have a card (the same size as a credit card) to show that they have access to these discounts. Other, more tech-savvy users display their card via the app.
The service costs only £3.99 a month or £39 for the year. With some restaurants offering up to 50% off or two meals for the price of one you can clearly see, if you like a meal out, how this would save you a good amount of money throughout the year!
Barnsgate offers 2-for-1 on meals with tastecard. So why not become a member and save yourself some money instantly! You can now book a table at Barnsgate online through here: https://bgmanor.wordpress.com/contact/

Morgan Sports car owners joined us for lunch on St. George’s day. What a beautiful line up of motors!
For those of you who didn’t know, #DriveItDay was yesterday which meant if you were out on the road, chances are that you managed to glimpse some stunning vehicles out and about!
The weather was lovely and we were lucky enough to host the Morgan Sports Car Club from Brighton for Sunday Lunch!
You can just imagine how wonderful it would be to go on a Sunday drive through Sussex with the roof down in one of these truly distinguished motors. The Morgan Sports Car Club boasts over 5000 members worldwide and it is not exclusive to owners. Enthusiasts are welcome to join and take part in events. Each center organises track and training days as well as their “Noggin & Natter” events to get together and chat. They even have their own monthly publication for group members.
The club started with a small article in the Autocar magazine over 50 years ago advertising for any Morgan owners who would like to form a club. Now they organise tours all over the world visiting famous tracks and locations such as New Zealand and Le Mans!
Being that it was St. Georges day, we displayed the tables with a red and white theme. There was a set menu prepared for the day with a choice of Lamb, Stuffed Chicken, Cod or Halloumi Strudel. We very much hope you enjoyed your stay with us. We certainly enjoyed having you!

It was a pleasure to host the RAF Air Cadets for their annual meal at Barnsgate Manor
A lot of effort went into the presentation of our Ashdown Restaurant function suite. Throughout the day members were hanging banners, arranging tables and making sure it was going to be a night to remember.
Guests were able to mingle in our function suite as well as on our balcony while enjoying the views of the south downs (due to the weather being permitting of course!) before sitting down to a three-course meal from a set menu prepared for the evening.
The RAF Air Cadets do a lot of work to support the Royal Air Forces Association which is a charity set up to support families of RAF members through every stage of their life. They provide help by participating in exhibitions, helping less mobile, older members and joining in line ups at formal parades to point out a few examples.
Their work is valued and appreciated. The RAF offers two awards for their participation. Flying Scholarships and their rafa YOUTH Cyprus Award to help further their career opportunities within the RAF. I feel this highlights what a wonderful organisation the RAF Air Cadets really is.

We hope you enjoyed your evening with us. It was a pleasure to be your host and we hope to see you again soon!
If you have visited us recently, you may have noticed on your way out some of our long term residents peering at you.
I’m talking about the Barnsgate Llamas! You may or may not have known that we have eight llamas all residing in comfort at the top of our drive, but as of late they have been making themselves known by bounding majestically to the fence line to greet random passers-by.
You may catch one of our majestic, fluffy friends galloping full pelt to the top of our grass mound with their head flailing all over the place… just so that they can have their picture taken.
They truly are living the high life. They have everything they could want with two different types of highly nutritional llama food with lashings of syrup, fresh vegetable trimmings from the kitchen, they even have a paddling pool for those days when the weather is hot and a llama has to cool themselves down.
It may surprise you to know, Barnsgate Manor has always had llamas. Even from the beginning over 25 years ago. With access to three different paddocks, the llamas have always been hard to spot. However, since the new shelter has been finished, the llamas have very much enjoyed the warmth that it provides and have made themselves at home in the first paddock.
Why not come and say hello? Their names are Kronk, Spit, Ian, Patrick, Bright Eyes, Tina, Fitch and Llama Croft. (All appropriately named by the kitchen staff that keep them fed up with veggies!) . See if you can guess who is who! It won’t cost you anything and the restaurant will be available for you to grab a bite to eat while you’re there!
