No saving needed at these Surf Life Saving Headquarters
This is one Clubhouse you will want to visit and stay a while in. Linked to Australia's Surf Life Saving Headquarters in Rosebery and established since 1907 this is one venue you won't need rescuing from. The decor is inviting and open planned with long tables for large party groups, classy arm chairs for laid back guests or smaller tables for intimate dining or business meetings. The balcony houses striped lounges for families with lively little ones or close friendship groups to sit and while away the hours. Whatever the occasion Clubhouse caters for your needs and your style.
The Clubhouse menu is extensive and exciting, allowing you to share or eat solo. The pizzetta choices are colourful with beetroot, goats curd, walnuts, braised onions and lemon oil becoming my firm favourite. Never letting me down with its cheeseboard presentation and expansive, falling off the edge, size. But maybe chorizo, spanish onion, olives, tangy peppers and piquillo aioli is more your preference.
Another glorious share option is the smoked mozzarella croquettes, lightly fried until golden and the mozzarella is oozing, melting and dripping through your fork. Very moorish and very naughty but just four bite sized morsels is enough. Char grilled corn, Kentucky sliders or crispy pork san choi bao are also perfect starter choices.
Main meals or Substantial meals as Clubhouse refers to them span some substantial choices from fish and chips to prawn pasta to pork belly. But the firm favourite has to be the Clubhouse Cheese burger, cooked medium and served with salad, herb mayo and kumara chips. For the meat eaters out there, each bite is a gift, perfectly teamed with crispy chips and a refreshing salad. Don't forget the completely intriguing desserts with the chocolate parfait sandwich or lemongrass and ginger panna cotta clearly tempting even me, the non dessert eater.
