“Great for starters, location and desserts. Main course (not golf course) didn't make it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Wife won a raffel prize for a three course meal for two here. Lovely location and got a sense that everything was so well organised for golfers and eaters.

Were waited on by a lady of more mature years who was completely on top of things and met all our needs without being intrusive. A complete pro. There seemed to be only four waiting staff and despite there being two 70-year birthday parties being held there was no panic and little delay. The staff should be commended for that.

The starters were perfetct - 10/10. The desserts were perfect - 10/10. But the main courses - roast beef and lamb shank were ruined with salt. Salt, salt, salt. The vegetables were perfect (slightly undercooked which is great given the time from pan to table) and took away the salt taste.

What can I say? I know - take away the salt from the chef or whoever adds it. Then the mains would have been delightful.

Just such a simple change would change the whole complexion of the meal. I hope they take this on board.

“We booked Fynn Valley for a post-funeral gathering”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

This is the second time we have booked Fynn Valley for a post funeral gathering for family and friends. On both occasions the management of the event has been oustanding. The food was plentiful, reasonably priced and of excellent quality. We had the opportunity to adjust numbers on the day. I must mention the catering manager, Mr Will Archer who could not do enough to ensure everyone had everything they needed. He even issued umberellas to guests as they left during a downpour and collected them as they reached their cars.

I cannot recommend this venue, food and the staff highly enough. It really was perfect.
Thank you so much.

“Great service, Great atmosphere and Good food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

What more can you ask for a family 75th Birthday Party! I am Diabetic, so have to be careful about sweet courses. There was no problem in taking our own cake which I knew that I was OK with. The staff were swift, efficient, and the whole atmoshere generated a feeling that they wanted my 75th Birthday to be special. They certainly suceeded, I have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

“'Fun-tastic' 9th Birthday treat!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

My son celebrated his 9th birthday along with 7 friends last Saturday at Fynn Valley and what a brilliant time was had by all!

They spent an hour with Chris Smith, PGA Pro who was brilliant with the boys showing them techniques and giving advice. They spent time in the driving range and on the putting green and then went out onto the Par 3 Course where they played 9 holes. All equipment and balls were provided and the boys loved being in charge of their own scores cards!

We then went into the bar where the boys enjoyed sausage & chips or burger & chips (burgers were homemade & humongous although after all that walking the boys polished them off!) and then all enjoyed a strawberry ice cream sundae. Chris & Mel in the bar were very attentive and made sure the boys hadn't run out of squash as all were very thirsty with it being such a hot afternoon.

The whole afternoon was brilliant and if you are looking for something different to do for your son/daughters birthday, I would highly recommend Fynn Valley. Infact the boys enjoyed it so much, they are all booked onto Chris Smiths junior coaching sessions being held in the summer holidays!

Thank you again for a very enjoyable afternoon!
