Great tasting food with stunning views – all at club prices

Castle Hill Country Club WelcomeRecognised as one of the top golf courses in Australia, Castle Hill Country Club is one of Sydney’s leading private golf clubs boasting open fairways amongst picturesque bushland and waterways.

This makes for a beautiful setting in which to enjoy Castle Hill Country Club’s Bistro – open five days a week for Members and Guests. The modern menu developed by Executive Chef Paul Bacon puts a touch of class into modern favourites and demonstrates his years of experience in top hotels.

While the menu is not extensive, it is diverse, and does manage to cater for a large range of tastes. Typical bistro fare takes on a gourmet flare as ‘Bangas and Mash’ are transformed into Country Beef and Thyme Sausages with Paris Mash, Wasabi Pea Puree and Onion Gravy, and the humble Chicken Schnity is reincarnated as Parmesan and Panko Crumbed Chicken Breast with Mustard Coleslaw, Chipotle Aioli and Steakhouse Fries. And seafood fans will love the Crispy Battered Market Fish with Steakhouse Fries, Lemon and Tartare Sauce.

The Wagyu Cheeseburger with Dill and Mustard Mayo, Tomato Relish, Beer Battered Onion Rings, Toasted Brioche Bun and Steakhouse FriesThe Wagyu Cheeseburger with Dill and Mustard Mayo, Tomato Relish, Beer Battered Onion Rings, Toasted Brioche Bun and Steakhouse Fries is a sight to behold. Stacked high and served on a wooden board, this burger mountain caters for big appetites. The wagyu beef is cooked to perfection providing a robust flavour, while the onion rings are served on the burger to give that bit of crunch with every bite. The tomato relish is served on the side and has more of a traditional bush flavour than some of the sweeter varieties on offer. This provides the perfect dipping sauce for the wickedly moorish beer battered chips.

For those looking for something lighter, the Warm Salad of Roasted Pumpkin and Pickled Baby Beets, with Persian Feta, Rocket, Apple and Candied Walnuts is a must try. This salad provides a great combination of sweet, sour, salty and bitter flavours and creamy, crunchy textures. I particularly like the candied walnuts as it reduces the bitterness of the walnuts considerably but isn’t overly sweet. The pumpkin and beets were roasted and warmed just enough not to wilt the rocket, and I did prefer the use of apple instead of pear in this instance. Ideal as a meal in itself this dish could also be considered as an entrée for those with a hearty appetite.

Lovers of Italian food will enjoy the rigatoni with pork and beef meatballs in roasted tomato & basil sauce with fresh Grana parmesan, and the Sriracha hot BBQ chicken wings with mustard coleslaw will satisfy the spice lovers.

The Coconut Braised Beef Cheeks in a Massaman Curry Sauce with Steamed Rice and Coriander is impressive from the very first bite. Traditional Thai flavours are at the forefront of this dish with a rich coconut cream texture and just a hint of spice. The beef is so delightfully tender, falling apart on impact, and soaked in the delicious sauce, it all just melts in your mouth. This dish is so luxurious you’ll find it hard to put your fork down, even though the generous portion size may fill you up before you’re finished.
