Great venue to practice and have a meal or a drink. So if you want to pitch and then snack. Go for it

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

Lovely venue with a great vibe. Waitress very attentive, Food was good. We had tempura prawns, fries , pizza and the banana & chocolate spring rolls. Food all right, no complaints aside from the chips that were a bit cold. This is not a restaurant for fine dining. It is more for pub lunches and grub. Like it and will... More

If you intend to have a work function at this venue, l would strongly advise you to think again. We were a party of fourteen for lunch today who selected this venue to bid a colleague of ours farewell after working with him for the past 8 years. The seating that they provided was uncomfortable, cramped and in the centre... More

Noisy venue with smokers filling the outside patio watching enthusiastic golfers on the practice range, ensuring that non-smokers have to sit inside. However with the patio doors wide open along the whole length of the patio, non-smokers still have to endure the second hand smoke wafting through the restaurant. The fish we had was very nice, but the spring rolls... More

Will not be returning in a hurry. We had a business dinner here. It was very loud in the adjacent venue, food was about average with minimal confidence in appropriate care to dietary restrictions, service was lacking.....

Nice place to hit a few balls, and has a mashie course as well. Greens not of the best though. But it's nice to hit a few balls of you like mats, while having a beer. Also undercover facilities.
