It’s not often I would ever consider going to a golf course to indulge in a lunchtime or evening meal but today I had the pleasure of visiting the 300 Acres Restaurant situated within the Wembley Golf Course and can I just say, not only did they change my mind but the food was to die for!
Holding an All Day Dining Menu, you will not be disappointed by what they have on this menu and what you decide to order here. Everything we ordered and tried was packed with flavour, made with love and the presentation of each dish could not be faulted in the slightest. We ordered the Roast Pumpkin and Asparagus Risotto with chicken with baked brie, broad beans and truffle crumb (which can come as either an Entree or a Main, I chose main). The Sticky BBQ Bourbon Lamb Ribs with house slaw and hand-cut chips as well as the Beef Cheek with buttered potato mash and broccolini. The meals all came out together which is always a plus in a restaurant because no-one ever wants to start eating when your family member/friend or partner doesn’t have their meal.
Taste-wise, I honestly don’t think any of these dishes could have been faulted. The risotto was creamy and full of flavour with the truffle crumb encrusted around the asparagus atop the dish. The beef cheek just fell away at the touch and the sticky bbq bourbon lamb ribs were full of strong flavours with the sauce being one of the best bbq flavours I have ever had! We were well satisfied with the mains we had. They were value for money indefinitely! However, when our server Nicole brought us out the dessert menu we couldn’t go past ordering a few dishes.
Now, I am a total sucker for a beautiful dish and my god were these dessert dishes beautifully presented! I ordered the White Chocolate Meringue with white chocolate mousse, mixed berries and walnut crumb. Sounds good already right? Coming out in a meringue sphere filled with white chocolate mousse and berries atop a layer of walnut crumb, I was in total foodie heaven! The Warm Apple Pie with rum custard and caramel ice-cream was divine! That caramel ice-cream is hands down some of the best ice-cream we have ever tasted! Last but not least, of course we couldn’t go past also ordering the Chocolate Brownie with hazelnut praline, vanilla ice-cream and chocolate sauce. The brownie was incredibly rich in flavour but just melted in your mouth. The service we received (thank you Nicole) was on point. From the moment we stepped in the doors to ordering our drinks, our mains, our desserts and us leaving, her customer service could not be faulted. I cannot wait to come back and try their entree’s and of course the rest of their desserts!
