Review of the Greens Restaurant at Lyme Regis Golf Club
After spending New Years Eve at Lyme Regis golf club and really enjoying the food there, I have been meaning to visit for Sunday Lunch for a while now – and there didn’t seem like a better time than a crisp Sunday lunchtime!
As we walked in, The Club House was full of cold golfers trying to warm up with a pint and some hot chips after a chilly morning of golf. Head Chef Stephen Pielesz has recently taken over and created in the new Green’s restaurant in the club house. Stephen’s Michelin star experience has certainly made an impact, as the club house is now sophisticated and elegant, yet still a very welcoming environment.
For the carvery it’s £10 per person. Considering for this you can have a choice of three meats (Beef, Turkey, Pork – or all three!) and as much vegetables and trimmings as you like, I thought this was exceptional value. You can then choose to supplement this with a varied selection of starters and desserts if you would like.
The starter selection included: soup of the day, seared scallops, goats cheese crostini, salt and pepper squid and chicken liver parfait. These ranged from £5-9 each.
I chose to have the Smoked Salmon Plate with capers, pea shoots and lemon dressing. The serving of salmon was extremely generous and very good quality. The simple garnishes balanced the rich salmon very well, without outshining the delicious salmon.
I decided on the Sea Bream off the specials menu for main course; although the meat (and Yorkshire puddings) looked delicious, especially the beef that was perfectly pink. My Bream was simply pan fried with a lemon and herb butter. We were then able to choose our own vegetable compliments from the Carvery table.
There was plenty of vegetables to choose from: sautéed leeks, braised red cabbages, cauliflower cheese, carrots, Tender stem broccoli and roast potatoes – all were cooked and seasoned very well.
For dessert, we shared a winter fruit crumble with clotted cream. The crumble was delicious. Again, at £6 per portion, were brilliant value for money. Other puddings included: sticky toffee pudding, chocolate brownie, vanilla crème brûlée, ice-cream and sorbets or a selection of cheeses.
There are also lots of weekday deals that Green’s offer such as: two steaks and a bottles of wine for £25 on a Friday night (we will definitely be returning for this) and 2 courses for £12.95 during weekday lunchtimes.
Green’s restaurant is a definite for value for money and beautiful food, I would definitely recommend.
