Three people in the Zest bar on a Monday evening at 6:30 PM, but including one ordering food for his family. Two bar staff serving and after a few minutes one becomes free but instantly then disappears into thin air, never to be seen again. Meanwhile, the other bar person continues to clunk away at the till touchscreen, ordering the... More

Overlooks the golf course, serving beers, wines, snacks & meals. Very nice to sit relax & unwind. Usual hotel prices of course!

There is a pleasant outside seating area located at the bottom of a formidable set of stairs, which is great on a warm sunny day as it overlooks the golf course. We... More

The staff were very accommodating with our disabled guest and the bar service was attentive. We ordered pumpkin ravioli and a spaghetti bolonaise. Both were very dry (reheated??) and the spaghetti came with grated cheddar instead of... More

Use the Zest Bar on a Saturday afternoon and a great atmosphere awaits. Good mix of health club guests, golfers and families. Choice of bar meals, nibbles and drinks. Great service from Lucy whenever we use it.
