REVIEW OF THE YEAR 2017

2017 A FEW OF OUR BEST BITS....

 

THE BARN OPENING

2017 saw the launch of our fabulous, fun and colourful Barn area.  We had a beautiful sunny April day with music Pimm's & cream tea lunch boxes. The Barn is available to hire and since it's launch has hosted weddings, family gatherings and sunny Sunday lunches.

 

MONTHLY QUIZ NIGHT

Our monthly quiz night has now been running for over a year and in this time we have gathered a steadfast following. Quizzers come not only for quiz master Gareth's witty repartee but to see what the food offering will be! For £5 per person you get quiz entrance and dinner in a box! We haven't repeated the same dish twice.....yet! Card Bingo is also not to be missed, lots of chances to go home with more cash than you came with.

 

BRUNCH CLUB

Our latest monthly offering is Brunch Club! Whats not to love? This new venture at The Gun is growing in popularity and tables book up fast! For the last Saturday of every month our usual menu is taken over by Brunch deliciousness! Boozy brunch or not? Our Brunch club will grow, we have a few new ideas for 2018 including a bottomless prosecco brunch....watch this space.

 

FRENCH NIGHT TAKEOVER

2017 saw our famous French night step down on two occasions! Summer graced us with a staycation to Greece with some tasty authentic Greek dishes and sharing meze. October brought us Mexican night much to everyones delight....I'm hoping for a revisit. We are all looking forward to where we will culinary visit in 2018.

 

GUNFEST

Our annual music event was a pirate affair this year kicking off with a few sea shanties from the Diablos, Potty the pirate for the children's delights and followed on by the vocal talents of The Purple Shoes, The Baby faced blues buskers and headlined by The Sonics. The sun shone the rum flowed a great time was had by all. We are planning 2018 already theme ideas welcome!

 

NATIVITY

This was the second year for this festive event. We were so happy Helena and the parish members marched their flock to The Inn to find there was no room so could stay in our Barn! Sheep, donkeys, children and carols. This is becoming our new favourite tradition! mulled wine, mince pies & hot chocolate....make sure you put it in your diary for 2018

NYE

Rounding off our busy year we welcomed in 2018 dressing like we were 18 and partying in the same manner. Following on from their Gunfest success we were thrilled to have The Sonics back to help us celebrate a new year. Watch out for the NYE 2017 blog post.

Brunch Club relocated to New years day for its December slot, perfectly timed for a few sore heads. 

2018 YOU HAVE A TOUGH ACT TO FOLLOW

Gunfest 2017

GUNFEST 2017!

It may well have been the best weather of the summer, how fortunate it was on the bank holiday Monday in time for our annual Gunfest.

This year there was a pirate theme with plenty of rum cocktails, sunshine and music.

Potty the pirate kicked things off for the children in original pirate material with a magic act and some awesome balloon creations.

The first band on were  returning act The Diablos who serenaded us with their laid back caribbean tunes.

Next were The Baby Faced Blues Buskers we last saw them at the launch of our Barn area we liked them so much we invited them to Gunfest. The Purple Shoes followed it was the first appearance from this group and very enjoyable.

The Sonics headlined and what a performance! I think the crowd surfing might have been a first for Findon! Better check our public liability before we rebook this band.

If you couldn't make it or would simply like to enjoy the memories here are few pictures from our favourite day of the year #gunfest2017

Georgia has been working at the Gun for over a year now part time whilst completing her catering qualifications at Brighton and Hove City College.

This week she finishes college in real style, heading her team to victory in a Hell's Kitchen food battle judged by Head chef at 'The Pass' South Lodge, Matt Gillan.

We are extremely proud of her and thrilled she will be joining our team full time this month.

To give you an idea of what delights won the challenge for her and her team here are some pictures from the event.

The Menu was....

A starter of Smoked egg, jerusalem artichoke, wild mushroom, truffles, pickled shallots and seeded snaps.

Followed by Lamb loin, minted pea puree, tomato, croquette, haggis, celeriac puree and rosemary oil.

Desert was chocolate work... stout cake, chocolate cake, chocolate and cherry with mousse and greek yogurt.

New Menu, Staff Tasting

With the new Menu just leaving the kitchen, lucky staff at The Gun Inn got to sample the wares first!

The kitchen cooked a selection of delicious dishes for the front of house team to enjoy.

Making staff members much more capable of answering the frequent question of "which is better?"

The desert section of the tasting may well have been the team's favourite! With the cherry blondie disappearing before our very eyes! 

Come try the new menu for yourselves and see.......
