We dined at the bistro tonight and the meals were both great. The prices for club meals are above average but there are no complaints about the standard of them. The newly refurbished bar area out the front looks great and is a more relaxed atmosphere then a the usual TAB bars in a lot of clubs. The cane chairs... More

There is an awesome area for kids young and old to play. It is better than any other place I've been to in that regard. The meals were only average we found though but overall an enjoyable experience.

After much discussion with "she who must be obeyed" about where to have dinner that night, I relented and we took off down to the bowls club (mistake number 1). They don`t change whether you are in WA, NSW any bowls club in the country. they are still a mix of wrinklies trying to get a bang for their buck... More

They've got some great things for kids here with a new putt putt course and a playground area. The bistro is fairly club-standard, no surprises, seemed popular with families but didn't quite hit the mark for us.

As an older couple we were not overly impressed with the noise from a kids party or the limited choice menu. OK if you enjoy pizza or chicken parmy.

Surprisingly large club in Yamba. On the Tuesday evening we were there it was Steak night so we had rump steak with chips and salad at a very reasonable cost. Not a huge steak but enough for most people. I would recommend a visit...maybe try the pokies and win the cost of your meal back...mmm didn't work for me either.
