“Would you please pass on our compliments to the Chef and kitchen staff for the delicious chicken pie and pizza we received in our recent order; one more pizza left and a good portion of chicken pie still to enjoy!! It has been very convenient to be able to order from the Club. The choice of food etc you offer and the home delivery is excellent and most convenient.” Allan Schurmann



Food Inspiration


For ‘Happy Hour’ this week, following a wonderful fortnight of tennis from Wimbledon and now The Open, we are taking inspiration from Britain and their ‘national drink’ the G & T.

With our own backyard home to the world’s best gin producer (IWSC 2019 & 2020), Four Pillars, here is our preferred way to drink this classic.

🍸50mls of Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin
🍸150ml of Schweppes Signature Series Bright Tonic
❄️Plenty of ice
🍈Add a twist of lime peel and Salute!

FRIDAY ‘HAPPY HOUR’ : cosmopolitan
For ‘Happy Hour’ this week, we reach for the Cointreau – a liqueur that is often found at the back of the drinks cabinet but is a key component of some very well known cocktails including the Cosmopolitan.
To prepare Karen’s Cosmopolitan, combine the following ingredients in a cocktail shaker, filled with ice.
🍸45mls of Vodka (to freeze or not?)
🍸15mls of Cointreau
🧃30ml Cranberry juice
🍈Freshly squeezed juice of half a lime
Shake before straining into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a slice of lime peel and Salute

For Friday ‘Happy Hour’ this week, we’re taking inspiration from Melbourne’s mantle as the ‘coffee capital of Australia’ & many would say the world – we’re proudly biased!
To replicate Karen’s Espresso Martini, combine the following ingredients in a cocktail shaker, half filled with ice – a glass jar will also do the trick.
🍸 30mls of Kahlua
🍸 15mls of Vodka
🥄 1 teaspoon of white sugar
☕️ Double shot of fresh espresso coffee
Shake vigorously for one minute which will create the froth. Pour into a chilled martini glass & top with three coffee beans. Salute!

FRIDAY ‘HAPPY HOUR’ : french 75
What a week it’s been & we’re calling’Happy Hour’ a bit earlier because we think it might be welcomed by many. Our Front of House Manager, Karen, has recommended a French 75, or for those who prefer, a ‘Soixante Quinze’. Dating back to 1915, to prepare combine the following in a champagne flute 🥂
🍸 30mls of Gin
🍋 15mls of freshly squeezed lemon juice
🍸 1 teaspoon of white sugar
🍾 60mls of Champagne, or Domestic Sparkling – whatever favourite bubbles you have in the fridge chilling will work
Add a twist of lemon peel and Salute!
