MARCH 2018

SPRING IS IN THE AIR

It's so nice when March starts with a bit of sunshine!!  well it was snow this year.  But with the clocks going forward this weekend it really feels like the lighter nights and brighter days are ahead of us.  Not that the 'winter' has deterred customers from taking up our lunchtime 2 for £12 offer.  It is going from strength to strength.  It was lovely to welcome so many mother's for Mothers Day last Sunday - always a special day in our calendar.  Of course at the end of the month we have a very early Easter, with our usual array of Live Music and Great Food.  Also in recent months our weekly Charity quiz has had a bit of a revamp, with some new and different rounds to keep everybody guessing.  Read all about it below.  

Plans are also well underway for a  special celebration of all things Gin on the May Bank Holiday weekend, our new menu launch in April, and of course our 4th Daft as a Brush Week in July

2 FOR £12 - MONDAY TO SATURDAY NOON TIL 5PM

Initially introduced to celebrate our win at The Great British Pub Awards in 2016, this offer has proved so popular it's here to stay.  We have chosen selected favourites from our Main Menu, Lighter Bites Menu and Specials Boards and combined them in an offer of 2 mains for £12, with no compromise on quality or quantity.  This deal is available through the daytimes - noon until 5pm, Monday to Saturday.  

There are always a minimum of 15 dishes on our 2 for £12 offer, so really is something for everyone.  Whilst some choices are permanent fixtures we also work through the seasons and regular add or change the menu.  For the current full menu follow this link

ANGIE AND PETER'S FUNNY QUIZZY THINGY - RAISING MONEY FOR DAFT AS A BRUSH CANCER PATIENT CARE

Every Wednesday 9pm start.

Since October 2017 our regular traditional general knowledge was replaced with a new format.  Based on the feedback we received from the quiz we staged during our charity week, Angie and Peter's Funny Quizzy Thingy is a very light-hearted approach to the pub quiz.  Each week the quiz follows a different theme, of which the questions are very loosely based!  The music round, Angie-okie, is sung by Angie with many of the pub singing along.  Many of the questions are random or multiple choice meaning most teams are still in with a chance of winning right until the end.  Even Team Bar Staff have been known to finish in the prize money!  There is also two spot prizes along the way,with one being a weekly challenge that can range from the sublime to the ridiculous.  

It's a great fun night, if you don't take pub quizzing too seriously.  But at the same time it raises a brilliant amount of money for Daft as a Brush Cancer Patient Care, with 100% of all your £1 entry fees going straight to the charity.  All prizes donated by The Hastings.

Check out our facebook page for this week's theme  https://www.facebook.com/thehastingsarms/

We have cash prizes for the first three teams, and spot prizes along the way.
