“Tough golf course”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

This is a testing golf course. Make sure you are booked to play the full old course and not the new 9. The clubhouse is wonderful with good food.

“Much improved”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

I ate here this afternoon, and the last few visits have shown a much improved service. The food has usually been good and great value but the service was hit and miss. Recently the service is much improved and I would recommend if you are in the area.

“Lovely location - Inconsistent Food”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Lovely views, but had lunch on three occasions but dishes lacked consistency.
Staff may require more training.
One occasion I did have a great fish, but that was after I returned my first choice as the dish as it was inedible!
Credit to the chef as the complaint was dealt with efficiently and produced an excellent alternate dish.

“Course still playable & tasty new menu”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

We played a friendly fourball here last Friday and despite all the recent bad weather the course was in very good condition. We played the Deerpark course and the fairways were very good, so was the rough as unfortunately we can testify too. But the greens were the best of all, like carpet. The course looks like lots of work has been done on it lately and the 18th is still a great finishing hole.
We had bite to eat afterwards in the bar and there's a new menu which absolutely lovely. Between the four of us we must've nearly sampled everything. The trio of deserts is a lovely touch.
