Had dinner at Aspire and enjoyed my Lamb Shoulder. Not a large meal but very tasty and enjoyable. Overall a nice club dinner.

This is a very popular bistro especially at lunch time. Reasonable value for your money. Need to book a table on Friday night as they have raffles and badge draws that night and the place can be packed.

Not the cheapest as far a Club food goes, but everything that was served up was delicious. Unlike other Club bistros it didn't pretend to be something it's not. Staff were friendly, atmosphere good, nice outlook over the course.

The menu on their website described their roast of the day as having 'baked potatoes, carrot, pumpkin, Yorkshire pudding'. Well, it did have carrot (although not cooked well), but there was NO pumpkin or Yorkshire pudding, and the potato wasn't baked, but rather cooked in the jacket with sour cream poured all over it (strange for a roast dinner!).

Aspire is a bistro in which you enter as soon as you walk into the golf club. The food was average, garlic prawns was ok but the rice on the side was not cooked properly, salt and chilli squid was nice as was the prawn pasta but the crispy skin salmon was not the worth the money - it came... More

We had lunch at the Aspire to celebrate a birthday. One person had a blackboard special and the other three of us had regular menu items. The food is consistently good and well priced. The satay meal is excellent. There is a really good variety of meals to suit all. The club has a bar and coffee is also available.... More

No atmosphere, scruffy staff and unsmiling. Air conditioning far too cold. Food very average. No change from last time when I visited with a friend. It should be better than this. Great location and beautiful views over golf course.

Tempted bye the Menu,but on arrival realised sitting in a barn with all the trimmings of a 80's dated club,things only got worse.The attempted food was far from its description and everything screamed bought in and packaged.When you can't even it a Greek salad right it's scary.One of the worse meals we've attempted to eat in a long time.

Best value meals, cater for all tastes. We had the Thai green curry - beautiful, spicy, perfect, on the specials board for only $10.50! My husband had mushroom and chicken quiche - he said it was moist and tasty, once again only $10.50! Fish and chips, great portion also only $10.50. Plus if you become a member, you get further...
