Not sure where to take your mum this Mother’s Day? Look no further than Leichhardt Bowling Club. It’s one of our longest standing local watering holes, where you can dig in to a hearty lunch and follow it up with an afternoon on the green.
Mother’s Day is a time when mum should be treated to a delicious meal that she doesn’t have to cook herself, so this Mother’s Day, Sunday 12th May, the Lions Den Restaurant (inside Leichhardt Bowling Club) is offering a $12 home-style cooked roast all day long, plus a free glass of wine for mum with her meal purchase.
Now under new management, Lions Den Restaurant has something for everyone with weekly specials and cheap eats – including a popular snack menu featuring tasty burgers and light snacks for under $15 – that will satisfy any grumbling tum. If seafood is your craving, pop in on Sunday for the seafood raffle that starts at 5pm (tickets on sale from 3pm). Or, for the meat lovers out there, don’t miss Wednesday steak night where you can get a 250g grain fed rump with chips and salad for just $10. Saturday chicken schnitzels with chips and salad ($10) are another popular choice. It’s this kind of value for money that has made Leichhardt Bowling Club so successful over the years.
Leichhardt Bowling Club itself will be celebrating its 90th year anniversary this September – a historic event and landmark the club is very proud of. It’s no mean feat to remain an active community club for so long; in fact they are the only local club left in the Leichhardt area.
Over the years, the club has become a popular venue for birthdays, corporate and group events, and offers barefoot bowls functions. “We have outdoor and indoor hire facilities available, and have become a popular place for young children’s birthday parties as there’s enough space for a jumping castle to be erected on the huge outdoor area,” says Daniel from the club’s management.
Look out for more information about the club’s upcoming 90th birthday celebrations on their website. It’s set to be a huge event for all ages and everyone is invited!
