Bar & Catering
We have a large three storey clubhouse, which includes a bar and lounge area, and a function room (known as the Dowsing Room) which has full catering facilities and can accommodate up to 100 people seated.
Our bar is open to members and their guests 7 days each week (outside of Covid restriction times - revised times are detailed below), both lunchtimes and evenings. We are also open lunchtime on both Christmas Day and Boxing Day, with the bar traditionally operated by the Commodore and Vice Commodore respectively on these days.
The main function room (Dowsing Room) is also available for hire at a modest fee to members for their own functions: celebrations, weddings, wakes etc. (click here for further details).
Sue Stripe is Benfleet Yacht Club's "Steward" and has full responsibility for the smooth running of the bar.
