We ate in the bistro on a Friday night early. The menu is typically club fare and not very imaginative (as was expected). The quantity of food was fine and the staff were friendly enough. The risotto was quite bland but the steak special was reasonable. Wines by the glass were quite good and very good value. It was overall... More

The club has been newly renovated and has 2 dining options upstairs is Chinese buffet style, whilst downstairs is a la carte, many options and all reasonably priced and delicious, you can also pop in for cake and coffee, for families there is a new playground and kids meal options, great friendly staff

Great for families with little kids needing to burn off some energy. Enclosed playground just off the dining area for the bistro downstairs. Reasonably tasty food, good size servings too.

Food adequate, staff friendly. Small outdoor playground a hit with young kids and the indoor room with colouring in etc was also useful. Good choice for a quick easy and stress free meal.

With the new extensions nearly completed at Port City Bowling Club and the advertisements on 2MCFM we decided to go and have a "gander". Well we must admit that the renovations while not totally finished are a credit to the club (certainly a lot more stylish that Westport extensions). Bright, Airy and a very relaxed atmosphere make for a pleasant... More

The new renovations look great but they have lost the Club feel. Meals downstairs are very overpriced, over salted and too expensive for most family's to now go for a meal out.
