Warm, hearty, friendly staff that knows us by name and drink. Excellent quality food. Very good value for money. Special dishes could rotate more often.

There is no doubt this is a quality club in quality surroundings. The food was good, the wine excellent. But the service whilst they were obviously trying very hard, the experience was just missing something overall in the package. Maybe it's the time of the...More

The restaurant overlooks the table-top-flat polo field, with magnificent wraparound views. The Polo Club wears many hats. It is, firstly, the 'local', where residents meet over coffee, grab a light lunch or meet for an after-work drink. At night, it's used by families with young children, or by empty-nesters with sophisticated tastes. Over weekends, the week day breakfast gives way to an interesting brunch menu. As if this isn't enough, the Polo Club team is also responsible for the weddings and other large events that are held on site. We love working with the Val de Vie Events team - they are superbly organised and bring fabulous energy to all they do! Mindful of all the different ways in which residents use the restaurant, we've done our best to put together a restaurant menu that satisfies these many requirements. We think we've managed to cover all bases from the 'quick-bite-at-lunchtime' to sophisticated dinner dishes to enjoy with a great bottle of wine. We offer the full range of Val de Vie wines, with its Rhône-inspired blends. These are complemented with a small selection of other producers' wines.
