I and my friends and relatives are regular visitors, I have been twice this week. Staff & food fabulous. Ambience of bar, and lounge so cosy and relaxing. I brought 2 friends who came down especially from London to enjoy a good meal & stayed 6hours, chatting over meal, superb deserts in the lounge with fresh coffee & cream. Again to a bit later before going home. Also with a relative for brunch in the week. We just so enjoy it. Thanks to all your staff who are fabulous.

2nd visit for a Sunday lunch in a matter of months. Most enjoyable on both occasions in all respects. We will be back.

We weren’t overwhelmed to be honest. We fedback about sandwiches being dry and this was acknowledged which we appreciated. The girl that brought the first lot of tea and coffee out wasn’t particularly talkative or acknowledging, and once the sandwiches and cakes were brought out, we were kind of left. I had to flag someone down to have some more tea brought out. The cakes were nice but the sandwiches a let down and for 4 people there weren’t that many. The manager did come and speak to us and said would let the kitchen know re the dry sandwiches and apologised. We travelled an hour to lap up the surroundings and enjoy this treat for a birthday. We left somewhat disappointed to be honest.

Fantastic Sunday roast. Service was outstanding, food was fantastic,puddings were fantastic. Clare who served us was spot on and very nice with local information. How we didn't go here the last time we visited Thorpness was a huge failing on our part. We will be going back. Excellent

Thank your staff for a superb Sunday Roast, plus equally superb service. We most certainly come for a meal again. In the meantime myself and two other friends just this afternoon visited your bar to order sandwiches and drinks, which were delivered, to that wonderfully comfy lounge you have overlooking your beautiful grounds towards The Mere, by your very friendly staff. We will all most certainly come again & again.Your Christmas decorations are just beautiful too, as is the Club as a whole.. Kindest Regards, Angela

Excellent value! First class food for a fixed price Sunday lunch. Service was just right. No rush even though we were eventually the last ones left in restaurant. Only one minor problem was no real cider for our Celiac friend although Peroni was offered and accepted as a substitute. Have already arranged to get a near future return visit with friends. Will continue to recommend to others!

The booking system was superb. On arrival service was good, we were left longer than expected without being asked if we would like to order drinks, the waitress actually came and asked us for our food orders 1st. Once ordered drinks came quickly. Food was rather over priced for the quality of the food. Mains we ordered, lobster and steak, my daughter being pregnant ordered her steak medium, it was served rare. I ordered a fillet steak rare it came medium, obviously the orders had been confused. I asked for my steak to be returned and another was delivered, VERY disappointing, it had obviously been frozen and had no flavour no juices and was dry, for 25.00 I would have expected fresh and beautifully cooked. No salad dressing with salad, again should come as normal with a salad. We were going to order sweets but a large party of exceptionally noisy golfers, obviously on a golfing weekend, arrived and were exceptionally noisy, disruptive and their language was to be questioned! I know you are a golf club, but surely this large party could have been seated in the bar or away from the other diners who were all enjoying the peace and quiet until they arrived. It was rather an abrupt ending to our evening and to the other diners whom we spoke to. Staff were pleasant and helpful.

Service was good at first, then dropped off as the restaurant got busy, trying to pay by card we had to go to the bar area as restaurant did not have a machine

This was a truly terrible dining experience. Two of our party of three ordered stone bass and the smallest pieces of fish I have ever seen served in a restaurant arrived on our plates. Without any thought to the others in the restaurant a couple one table away engaged in a very loud and very lengthy FaceTime conversation with their relatives via their phone. I would never dine here again.

We enjoyed a splendid overnight stay and family Sunday lunch at the new-look Ogilvie’s. The roast beef was tasty and cooked to perfection, whilst the griddled salmon that my wife and mother had received top marks. Generous portion sizes and you can’t ho wrong for about £16:00 for two courses. The only mystery was why the restaurant wasn’t fuller for a bank holiday Sunday, and that’s why I’m writing this review, because it deserves more customers!
