Had a truly lovely afternoon tea here today on the terrace with stunning views for miles. The decor of the restaurant needs some updating along with the outdoor furniture but do not let that put you off. The staff were all so welcoming and friendly and the afternoon tea was faultless. Warm sausage rolls, fresh soft sandwiches, plain and fruit homemade warm scones with huge pots of cream and jam and too many mini cakes to even mention and take away boxes for what we couldn't manage. I really wouldnt hesitate to return and have even looked up the Sunday roast since returning as I think this is a little hidden gem that I'm thrilled to have found! More...

We recently had our wedding at Barnsgate Manor and had the most amazing day. Everyone commented how much fun it was and there were in particular many compliments on the food. From the guests arrival at 1.30 until the last people left after midnight we were very well looked after. Aside from a few blips which I know you will use to continue to improve we couldn't fault the experience and this beautiful venue and friendly staff helped ensure we had the perfect day More...

We held our wedding here a week ago and I could not fault the venue or staff. It was amazing and perfect from the first day of booking they were so helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Food was amazing, venue stunning, staff were brilliant. Words cannot describe how very impressed we were. The venue was done beautifully and exceeded our expectations with their finishing touches. The staff are so friendly and helpful from start to finish and helped with any concerns we had and were reassuring on our wedding day when nerves were at a peak. They put us at ease and would do anything to make sure our day was perfect. I would recommend barnsgate to anybody for any occasion. More...

We had a thoroughly enjoyable Sunday roast today. 9 of us for my sons 7th birthday. It really was fantastic. We were put in a room to the side, which we had to ourselves. The view was beautiful and the meal was some of the best we've eaten. The service was impeccable. We cannot wait to have our wedding here next year. Thanks Darren and Micheal for your amazing hosting. More...

I recommend everything about them. There service, to there food & aftercare. My wedding day wouldnt of been even close to perfection if it wasnt for the Barnsgate team. I can't thank you all enough especially Darren & Michael. I came into contact with many, if not all staff members with the lead up to the big day, during the dat and afterwards when i collected some left over belongings and i can honestly say everyone is genuinely lovely, no one was there cos they had to be, they all seemee to have a passion for their jobs. Thank you again so much and see you soon for afternoon tea x More...

Had such a wonderful day celebrating My Daughter Rosies wedding to her partner Luke. Such a beautiful romantic tranquil setting with a breath taking view, stunning atmosphere, quaint little chapel, amazing banquet room decorated beautifully, a 1st class service, from the staff, they were very polite & helpful, esecially 1 of the female staff she was more than helpful went beyond her duty helping me in a crisis, so I was able to carry on with the celebrating. I will be recommending Barnsgate Manor Vineyard to people & may hopefully return there again. So I give a 5***** rating & 10/10 for the whole day. More...

What a wonderful place. We had a 50th Wedding Anniversary Party for 100 people in the Ashdown Suite 2 weeks ago. It was a fantastic evening. Fabulous food, wonderful service. Darren was so helpful with the planning & organizing prior to the event & on the day Darren & Natalie made sure everything was exactly as we.wanted. Every thing we asked for was never a problem. Our guests had a choice of 4 or 5 dishes on each course all served as requested. Thank to Darren, Natalie & all the staff who made it such a wonderful time. More...

What a night at Stu’s 30th birthday party in Essex. The surprise present of the Magic Mirror Photo Booth went really well. We was hired for 2 hours and they made full use of the unlimited print outs. The evening was full of fun and laughs. The props went down a treat which added giggles to memorable photos. The Magic Mirror was active for the whole night with everyone coming back for more. We was sad to leave as it was a great party and wonderful 30th birthday celebration. We are grateful that we could be a part of it and attend the event at their house party. They went for a back ground of a colourful brick walk affect with a Stu’s Dirty 30 heading. There was lots of fantastic poses which made for great photos.

A big congratulations to Aaron and Emma on their Wedding day. We were very pleased to be a part of their special day. The wedding reception was held at Barns gate Manor located between Crowborough and Uckfield. We were booked for 2 hours in the evening. The Mirror was very busy for the entire duration of the hire period by both the kids and the adults. The Magic Mirror was a big hit on the night. It created some funny and memorable pictures of all the guests. The Mirror helped to capture the fun and laughter that was shared on the evening. Here are a few of the fantastic pictures taken with our Magic Mirror at the reception party.

We had a brilliant evening at Steve and Heather’s wedding reception at the Roebuck Hotel in Wych Cross. Heather and Steve booked our Magic Mirror for 3 hours on the 26th of May 2017. The Mirror was in full use from start and was a big hit with all the guests. There were some fantastic family photos taken and also some funny photos of reunited friends who dressed up in our props. Many of the guests chose to use the touch screen to make the pictures more personal, from writing class of 84 too drawing hearts and kisses. Here are a few photos that were taken for wedding reception using our Magic Mirror.
