The class place is amazing, the atmosphere too but they screwed everything with the food. Dynamite shrimps without sauce, nachos cold and they wer not able to make them warm, the menu not really fabulous... I did not like the food. Shame.

Miss the old clubhouse but very impressed with the new. Fast service and delicious breakfast. Highly recommend the eggs florentine & full English breakfast. And I loved that the tea was served in a good size mug :-)

Weekly activities include the live telecast of major soccer, rugby, tennis and golf events, quiz night on Wednesdays and daily specials. The Club also caters to functions big and small from birthdays to weddings and wakes. Contact the Club for menus and catering plans for corporate or family events.
