Ate dinner in the Grassholme Suite. Menu boasts 'Quality Wholesome Food' which, judging by my experience, is a misrepresentation. Menu has 3 choices of starter. I had the Rare Breed Port Terrine (with House Pickles, Red Onion Jam & Toast). Presentation was fair, food lacked seasoning therefore very bland; red onion jam was tasty but toast was so hard you...

Nice place, eaten here before and was impressed for a Sunday lunch. This time, a little different. The staff and service are excellent but the food I'm afraid let them down. £27.50 for a soup and a chicken Kiev is too much when you consider how the chicken was served. Who puts a chicken Kiev in the middle of a... More

Lovely location to eat looking out over the golf course. Food is good but the set lunch menu has a limited choice and doesn't seem to change very often. For this reason we don't go as often as we might.

Ate at the Clubhouse at lunch time. The food was luke warm and the price was too high. Never again, which is a shame as we have eaten there before and it was lovely, but not this time.

My wife & I just had lunch here & although the service from Sophie was good & my burger was okay,sadly my wife's mince & dumplings was hardly edible. The dish arrived strangely shrouded in cabbage leaves & once she'd moved them & tucked in things didn't improve. The mince was lumpy, tough & apparently tasted & smelt of dog... More

Taken as a guest by a family member - discount if you are a member of the golf club. Simple dishes served well. Pleasant staff. Perhaps lacking in atmosphere as it is quite a large seating area. A relaxed and enjoyable evening.

If you like a fun, lively atmosphere, this is a good change from the main dining at the hotel. The food is above average pub food and the service pleasant enough. However, we were there on a Friday when it was busy and, with a live singer, it was extremely difficult to hear or speak. Too noisy for an older... More

I had dinner in the club house and we were driven from the Main Reception (about a 5 minute walk) by the courtesy bus. The food was excellent and served to a very high standard by excellent staff. I would like to give Sophia a special mention as she was outstanding.

Well why not and to be fair we only had to pop outside to choose our food. The short rib was truly amazing and tender and the burgers delightful. Great signer in the background what more could you need after a long day travelling.

We only ate in the clubhouse once. The food was delicious and the staff particularly attentive and professional.
