Was invited here for lunch by a friend. Had a great lunch on the terrace watching people hit balls off the practice range. Ordered fish and chips. Seriously this was the freshest and best fish and chips I have eaten for a very long time. The service was excellent and the waiter was very pleasant. Prices were also very reasonable.... More

Nice atmosphere, food was delicious, (the burger) but waiter forgot my order and I had to wait while the others were already eating. They did help to charge my phone which was a good service.

I attended a three day workshop at the River Club and had a really comfortable experience of the venue. There is ample free parking as you arrive. There are several small and large rooms all of which are air-conditioned and suitably furnished. There are comfortable couches scattered around the passageways which are useful for breakaway discussions. The food was good,... More
