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, both lunchtimes and evenings. We are also open lunchtime on both Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
The main function room (known as the Dowsing Room) is also available for hire at a modest fee to members for their own functions: weddings etc. (see separate menu item "Dowsing Room Hire").
Sue Stripe is Benfleet Yacht Club's "Steward" and has full responsibility for the smooth running of the bar.
