Nice for a Bite

I stopped in here for a bite to eat and was very pleased with the service, menu is a little restrictive but the food is very good!

We were here with a Society outing and had booked a few lodges as well as we were having a meal afterwards, presenting prizes and then music. So a late night ensured. Super course and everyone enjoyed it from the single figure handicappers to the higher handicappers. We all sat outside afterwards in the glorious sunshine and enjoyed the game... More

The Clubhouse does lovely meals at a very reasonable cost. It's just a resturaunt with a bar licence, no entertainment as such only the TV.

Good course and pretty good value. Golf pro and proshop know their stuff. Be sure to factor in the ferry crossing for your tee time and what time you need to return. Ferry takes 5 minutes but you could be waiting up 15 minutes if you have justed missed it!

Fanytastic setting, great views, great service, most of the food average at the best. The service was very good, drinks arrived quickly, polite service, unfortunately the main course was very very average, fish was over cooked, chips were well underdone, curry had little flavour, where as the fish cakes we had for a starter were fantastic.

If money is no object you should treat yourself to a meal in the Castle. It is really very good. I wouldn't know what the course is like to play but it's lovely to walk around, and the walk isn't "spoiled". So leave the balls behind, and walk and treat yourself.
