About a year ago I reviewed a new local eatery called The Clubhouse and since then the restaurant has grown hugely in popularity. When they invited us back to try their new Winter Menu I was very quick to confirm as I knew from our past experience to expect good things!
The Clubhouse is located at the Claremont Cricket Club in Constantia and is a great restaurant for a relaxed family meal. In recent months I’ve decided that as a family we need to visit a variety of restaurants – not just the traditional “kid-friendly” ones. When we occasionally go out for a meal I actually like to spend the time chatting to my kids and engaging with them. I find it quite annoying when they disappear into the play area or sit and watch the TV the whole time… what is the point?
The Clubhouse was the perfect alternative, not only does it serve delicious food for adults but it also has a great, healthy kiddies menu. There are also a variety of entertainment options but they are things that encourage conversation – playdough, colouring in etc.
Another great benefit during the winter months is the lovely fireplace and after some time with mom and dad my kids were only too happy to connect with a few others gathered around on the couch near the fire playing on their iPads and this gave us some time to enjoy our delicious meal!
For starters we opted for the very tasty smoked paprika prawns and calamari. Then for mains we both indulge in hearty lamb dish – my husband opted for the lamb shank and I the lamb ragu – both were amazing and my mouth is once again watering as I write this review!
The kids both opted for traditional spaghetti and meatballs and were both very satisfied with their choices. And then for dessert they were treated to a mini-magnum ice cream! A huge bonus is that children under 12 eat for free on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4-7pm!
By this stage our stomachs were quite full, but there was no way I was passing up on the Amarula & Chocolate Creme Brulee so we opted to share this – and it was such a treat – in presentation and taste!
The Clubhouse is a great all-weather venue that caters for the whole family. A kiddies room is coming soon where kids will be entertained over the rainy months with movies and other fun activities and if your kids prefer the outdoors, the Clubhouse has full use of the fields for them to run and play!
The Clubhouse is now hosting monthly quiz nights. Entry for a team of 4 is just R80 with pizza, burger and drinks specials on the night, and the chance to win prizes for the top 3 teams. Booking is essential!
I’m pleased to say that I have a R350 gift voucher for one lucky Becoming you reader to put towards a family meal at The Clubhouse this winter!
