Tonbridge Care Home Residents’ Show You’re Never Too Old For The Pub

Residents’ of Barnes Lodge went round the corner to their local pub, the Cardinal’s Error, where they enjoyed a buffet of sandwiches and scones, washed down with a drink or two.

Much to their joy, it was discovered that a local of the pub had donated the buffet and even left enough for a drink for everyone. Whilst the donor remains a mystery, they were allowed to know the preferred tipple of the kind person, which was a great choice of Hendrix Gin. Residents’ ensured they put money behind the bar as a ‘thank you’ drink, along with a card signed by everyone.

Stewart Milford, Landlord of the Cardinal’s Error said, “we are so happy to have Barnes Lodge residents’ here. Our aim is to make this pub the heart of the community and things like this are such a positive experience for us”.

Debbie Long, Activities Coordinator at Barnes Lodge thoroughly enjoyed the outing, commenting: “It is so lovely to have a change of scenery, this is such a great historic building and the pub is so charming – we all love the garden. Our residents’ loved their buffet, we are so grateful, it is so nice to have the support from local businesses like this.”
