Rathfinny Wine Estate

Half Term Happenings

Is it me or did this half term holiday seem to come round really very quickly? Looking at the BBC weather forecast for the next week it looks like it could be bright and sunny, but chilly. That sounds like perfect weather for getting out and about – why not come and have a good ramble on the Rathfinny Trail and pop in to our café for a well-deserved hot drink and piece of cake or even come up for a tasty lunch?  The café will be open 10am to 4pm every day over the half term period, why not lounge by a log fire with the daily newspapers.

We have more Sunday Roasts coming up this March, so if you’d like to have details and dates on these then please sign up for our Flint Barns email list, flintbarns@rathfinnyestate.com. The dates are due to be emailed to the list of people who have asked to be informed of events taking place at the Flint Barns by the end of the week. Please note booking is essential for the Sunday Roasts.

Customer Feedback about our Flint Barn Roasts

“We came there last weekend and the food and staff were brilliant!” 

“Visited The Flint Barns for the first time with friends on Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed lunch and the whole experience.  We received a very warm welcome and the staff & service were exceptional.”

Meanwhile at the Gun Room in Alfriston, here are a couple of noteworthy dates for your diaries!

Coffee Morning and Historical talk by Dr June Goodfield

Wednesday 9 March, 10 am to 12 noon, The Gun Room, The Tye,Alfriston  

A free COFFEE MORNING to showcase the Alfriston Heritage Centre which is located upstairs at the Gun Room. The Centre features a permanent exhibition which was written by members of the Alfriston and Cuckmere Valley Historical Society. It is a light and airy space which is available for occasional use by local groups and organisations by agreement with the Gun Room Manager. All are welcome to come and look at the exhibition, to meet the Gun Room team, and to listen to a talk by Dr June Goodfield, President of the Alfriston and Cuckmere Valley Historical Society, at 11 am.


Caudalie Cosmetics Event – Wednesday, 3rd March

Our exclusive grape-based cosmetics brand Caudalie is proving to be a real hit with Gun Room customers. Following last Autumn’s successful beauty evening, we shall be running two beauty workshops on Wednesday March 3rd. We’re fully booked for these and operating a waiting list, but should you be interested in future events please do not hesitate to contact the Gun Room team on 01323 870022. One of last year’s attendees said :

‘The best beauty event I have ever attended!’ so it’s worth signing up for.

The Caudalie range operates from a vineyard in France. Whilst our policy is to promote Sussex and English products where possible, Caudalie is such a high quality brand, and one which celebrates the unique restorative qualities of the grape we so love here at Rathfinny, we have made an honourable exception – and our customers seem to agree!

**Please note we encourage walkers onto the Estate.  It’s fine to drive if you’re attending an event, or have pre-booked, just give us a ring if you’re popping in  01323 874030.
