Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Reviewed 30 October 2022

Used to love the bowling club for dinner but I understand they have tendered out their restaurant and boy has it gone downhill. Had the chicken boscaiola. Looked not bad on arrival but the sauce was watery and tasteless. If it were not for the...parmesan to give it flavour, would have been a shocker. The club needs to go back to what it had before which was wonderful. You are going to lose patrons.More

Great service by friendly staff and steak cooked to perfection. Fresh vegetables on the side. Worth a return visit.

The menu has a good variety and our group ordered some main meals and some items to share - the arancini, camembert and bao buns from the starters are all recommended!

Food was okay but you need to stick to the trusty club meals. The John Dory wasn’t so good and the butter sauce was literally butter. Service is good and serves decent.

Had the Chicken schnitzel burger & it was beautiful, but way too big I could only eat a quarter of it. A shame to not finish it which is an affront to the chefs, but did say it was way to big & should be...smallerMore

Excellent food, brilliant service. Despite being very busy, I didn't have to wait long for my meal. The waitstaff were all very good. I had an excellent experience, and will gladly return.

We booked the courtesy bus to collect us from our accommodation which was very convenient. The atmosphere at the club was very good with plenty of places to sit and have a quiet drink. We had dinner at the Bistro Grill and the service was...excellent. The food was also great.More

We celebrated a birthday last December and the food was very good. Eight months later.... pretty ordinary. In fact the chef seems not to have much of an idea. Service was friendly and helpful. Food ranged from plain to awful. We won't be visiting again.

I thoroughly enjoyed the pan fried gnocchi which was one of the chef's specials last Wednesday evening. Plenty of strips of bacon, greens and roast pumpkin ... delicious.

Have been to the bistro several times in the past and looked forward to one of their steaks, which I previously enjoyed. But this time I was most disappointed 25% of the steak was gristle. However my wife had duck confit which she throughly enjoyed.
