Bar and Food

Our Clubhouse has a well-stocked bar selling a wide range of beers, lagers, wines, spirits and soft drinks. We sell locally brewed Adnams throughout the year with a guest beer from them in the summer months! 

Our menu is prepared fresh to order and we always use local suppliers where possible.  We are happy to cater for all dietary requirements: vegetarian, gluten and dairy free. 

Well behaved dogs are very welcome to stop for a bowl of water outside (only) and on the lawn so long as they remain on their lead. Assistance dogs such as Guide dogs are permitted in the clubhouse.

Club Library

Books for Sale.

The Club Library is in the Orwell Room on the first floor. It has an extensive collection of sailing related books, mostly non-fiction, planning charts (paper and digital) and other publications. There are also several members’ cruising logs which have been entered for the Cruising Log Trophy over the years.

Most of the library stock may be borrowed by members and makes a great source of escapist and inspiring reading for your summer cruise or winter fireside. Instructions for borrowing are in the Library Loans Book.

The Club’s archives prior to 1970 are housed at the Suffolk Records Office, Gatacre Road, Ipswich. The catalogue for this part of our archives is available from Suffolk Heritage Direct by clicking on the following link to their website:
