In the past I considered Roganstown Golf and Country Club pretentious, overblown by it's own original undeserved reputation.
Over the years I had many a dreadful experience there. In the restaurant, at organised functions, weddings, fund raisers and in that time when I went on Thursdays to the bar, for the live music and a snack: until the menu changed from affordable bites, to pricier snacks, to dinners.
Why did I persist? I don't know: it's local and deserved patronage, especially as when I complained I did get call backs to discuss my experience.
Now I think management has seen the light and are starting to provide good food, at a reasonable price, in the lounge. The restaurant is still a step to far, for me yet.
Last Saturday my Grandson rated the burger as in fourth place, after The Nuremore, Nanna's and Mamma's burgers: and that is praise indeed.
My scampi was enjoyable and Nanna's panini passed muster also.
The other diners seemed to be enjoying themselves as well, especially the man who commandeered the TV for the rugby, when two GAA league matches were also being broadcast live: brave man.
The black stuff went down a treat and since I was not driving, I lingered and had “a few”.
I will be back again soon. Everyone deserves a second chance.
