The Club is a family friendly members Club, run for the last 120+ years, by the members (and its Officers) for the members. To maintain the Club’s culture and safe welcoming atmosphere and to ensure respect between all members, it is important that members abide by the shared rules we all adhere to.

We are a family Club and have rules, bye-laws and notices to ensure acceptable behaviour and a well run Club. Please take time when at the Club to find the various noticeboards, to find further information and rules or member’s information about Club life and how to use the Club, whilst respecting other members and our staff.

If in doubt about any Club rules or Club Life, please ask a Committee Member, the Bar Manager, or email Dan, the Club Secretary.

Shared here are selected member's rules as reminders of acceptable behaviour standards. We have also added below locations available to find further information and rules or member’s information about Club life and how to use the Club, respecting other members and our staff.

If in doubt about any Club rules or Club Life, please ask a Committee Member, the Bar Manager, or email Dan, the Club Secretary.
