Traditional eggplant deliciousness from The Pasta Bowl at the Byron Bay Golf Club

Gone are the days when services and sports clubs dished up a choice between a pie and chips, or bangers and mash.

Food in clubs has changed in recent years – it’s changed a lot – and I know one foodie who makes it their business to visit the local bowlo or RSL when they travel. Things have gotten exciting!

Sure, you are still likely to get a chicken palmy, or a schnitzel and salad, but these days you’ll also be offered something a little bit more gourmet and definitely something more tasty.

There are some great clubs in the area, and two of them at least have gone for an Italian theme; with The Pasta Bowl at the Byron Golf Club serving up delicious traditional Italian food with vegan and gluten-free options, and the Società Bistro at Mullum Ex-Services Club – while still serving up the classic schnitzel and palmy – also has tasty gnocchi and arancini for those diners wanting something a little more outside the traditional RSL box.

The Bangalow Bowlo Kitchen is another club to break the wedges and chips chain – serving everything from crispy chickpeas with curry salt and lime, to an eggplant Parmigiana burger (you see, the parmy has evolved but is still on offer!).

Clubs have plenty to offer and they stay reasonably priced and family friendly – give them a try and you might be surprised.
