“80th birthday party”

Islwyn Indoor Bowls Club & Restaurant
Ranked #9 of 60 Restaurants in Blackwood
Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 November 2017

A massive thank you to Leanne and her husband for helping us organise a small do for my mum's 80th birthday. They were both helpful and obliging and nothing was too much trouble.Thank you too to Michelle and the young bar maid who was on duty on the evening. The buffet was fresh and plentiful.A younger staff is just what is needed in the Bowls Club. Older staff are sometimes set in their ways and maybe less ambitious to encourage new clientel. A small gripe was that we would have had to have paid £5 a table for white table clothes. While I understand laundry need to be paid for this seemed very expensive.

I got married there last year.My wedding was a low budget wedding but the Islwyn bowls club was excellent value for money. The venue was free and you paid per person for foof. Food was fantastic and the staff were fab especially to two ladies there.I would recommend this place to anyone for a wedding reception or any other party .

Good reviews prompted us to book Sunday lunch for 4 adults and 2 young ones. The restaurant is clean, bright and not cramped. We had a table where we could sit around in comfort without the buggy and high chairs being a problem for us or others.
Soup starter was lovely, the prawn cocktail not special. Good traditional Sunday lunch with the meat served on the plate and vegetables in dishes - quantity ample. Three of us had pork and two had beef - the pork was very good (apart from rubbery crackling) and the beef was excellent. Desserts were not great. We will return because it's a really friendly place and very good value compared with many around.

Today our family enjoyed an excellent Sunday lunch to celebrate our Mum's 85th Birthday. Food was of a very high standard. Service good & delivered in a warm & friendly manner. Two of our party are wheelchair users. Accessibility very good. Staff very accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely return.
