Those who are normally turned off by beer-soaked bistros with pokie machines need not worry at Ryedales Tavern: the bar and bistro are kept separate so both crowds are happy. Fulfilling the obligations of a modern gastro-pub, Ryedales produces food that's comforting, inexpensive and more sophisticated than the norm. Sure, favourites like fish and chips, steak and rogan josh curry are available, but you can also get generous blackboard specials like grilled barramundi, chicken creole and crab linguine, to name just a few.
Ryde-Parramatta Golf Club offers a beautiful, challenging and conditioned Ross Watson designed golf course nestled midway between the City and Parramatta.
Ryde-Parramatta provides a challenge to all levels of golfers and, with the picturesque Archers Creek meandering its way through the course, is a haven for birdlife and a natural escape from your day to day life.
The Club is open to guests with an official handicap in the Friday Open competition otherwise a membership is required to access.
Flexible monthly payments options are available and interstate or international travellers are welcome in quiet periods.
