Great golf - awful service.
May 2021 • Couples
The courses are lovely and well kept. And the tuition from the pros is absolutely first class. I’ve had tuition from more than one of them (and from other golf pros on three other continents) and I think the Hever Castle golf pros are the best. The pro shop is efficient and incredibly helpful.
But the whole experience is let down by the incredibly slow impersonal service in the bar afterwards. They are so slow and seem much more interested in talking to each other than serving customers. They say you need to have table service - but their table service is very very slow and at their whim.
Today I waited 19 minutes and no one came to take an order. So I went to the bar where five staff were just chatting with each other. I asked and they said it was just table service and they’d come. But I waited another 10 minutes for service.
Later after a round, we went inside, and similarly, intolerably slow. Very friendly when they eventually turn up, but I’d rather go somewhere else if I wanted a drink afterwards.
So - good for golf - excellent pros - but really rubbish bar service in our experience (from several recent experiences)

Over priced
May 2021
I’ve eaten at the golf club on many occasions having played golf, but never had breakfast, nor will ever again. Although the staff were lovely, but totally over worked due to not having enough staff on duty the breakfast was very poor and expensive. I choose items off the menu not wanting a full English breakfast. I was discussed to see that they charge £1.50 for 1 small mushroom, £1.50 for half a rasher of bacon, and £1.50 for a small hash brown. Totally over priced!

Best Afternoon Tea
Oct 2020 • Couples
We visited the Waterside Bar and restaurant for Afternoon Tea. All the staff were friendly and welcoming. The Afternoon tea was probably the best I’ve had!! It was full with sandwiches and a great selection of cakes. They accommodated my request of a plain scone. Tea refills were as we needed. Absolutely lovely and fresh food. We had a window seat of the golf course taking in some great views. Would recommend to anyone and definitely come back again!!

Easy, relaxing, good food.
Sep 2020
Went for dinner. The booking process (via email) was swift and easy. The setting was lovely - we had our starter sat outside watching the moorhens. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was fairly priced and of a decent portion-size. Didn't have a chance to try the dessert but will likely be back in Hever at some point and will definitely be returning for a drink and food.

What a gem
Aug 2020 • Couples
The Waterside restaurant is quite hidden away, I didn’t even know it was there until very recently. But I was pleasantly surprised by how nice it is - a pretty location and good quality food! We will be returning.

Beautiful grounds and Driving range
Aug 2019 • Family
Recently visited the Golf Club to try out the driving range.

My 10 year old is a aspiring golfer.

Short walk from the car park reveals a lovely outdoor deck area for food and drinks.
Beautiful landscape.

The driving range itself is very nice.
Well manicured and clean.

Very helpful distance markers and legend guide at the "T" area .
This was quite nice because it set goals for the golfer.

I witnessed a golf lesson in a sectioned off area of the range which looked quite good.

All in all, a nice experience.
We will be back for more practice and perhaps a light meal.

What a great golf course
Jul 2019
Played the Championship course on the second day of our visit. This was far better and tougher than the Princes course which while enjoyable and pretty wasn't as tough. The Championship course has its own Amen corner. The 11th 12th and 13th are among the best holes of golf I have ever played. The pro shop was friendly and helpful so would recommend

Dear John, Thank you very much for your very positive feedback. I am glad you have played all our 27 holes, The Princes 9 we find is excellent for a round to get your swing working well, before embarking on taking on the Championship Course. We look forward to welcoming you to the club again soon. Kind Regards Jon Wittenberg Club Manager
