The Club has six high quality Rinks, with an electronic scoreboard that can be operated on all six Rinks, on three Rinks or independently.  For player comfort, we have an Air Source Heat Pump system to give a more even distribution of heating and cooling and a high quality LED lighting system throughout.  The Club has full facilities for disabled members, including access ramps to the green and bespoke wheelchairs designed specifically for bowling.

Shop - Iceni Bowls

A well-stocked shop on the premises offers the full range of bowling equipment and clothing and is open during Club opening hours.

The Club has a well-stocked and well used bar and lounge and is open in the winter season from 10am, for a full service, until 10.30pm every day (open until 10.00pm on Sundays).  It is also open from 8.30am for a limited service ie for tea, coffee and toasted sandwiches only.

Summer opening times match those of the summer season opening times.

"Snack A Jack"

The Club restaurant will be opening on Monday 12th March for a trial period of 2 weeks providing breakfasts and snacks for our Members and visitors. It will be open from 08.30 until 14.00.
We will continue to provide meals and buffets for our home matches in addition to other occasional functions of which there will be due notice on this site.

As indicated earlier last year we have re-introduced a full, pre-bookable, lunchtime roast fortnightly on Wednesdays. If this facility is supported by our Members it may be possible to introduce Sunday Roasts and to have "Fine Dining” and “Steak & Scampi” nights.  For our restaurant to be a success it is important that our members support it by popping in from time to time on a Wednesday during the winter season. The more use our Members make of this excellent facility the more likely it is that we can provide more in the way of meals and entertainent. It's your restaurant so make the best use of it. When booking your place for these lunches we require advance payment which should be handed to the Duty Steward. We are currently limited to 60 covers so it is important that you book in advance. Booking lists will be placed on the notice board.
