There is 1 review of Ipswich & District Indoor Bowls Club.

  • The Committee of SNEOSG (Suffolk & North Essex Occupational Safety Group) have asked me to write a review of the premises we use for our monthly committee meetings and Presentations. We have been using the bowls club as a venue for our monthly committee meetings and for our members presentations for some years now. We find the venue warm and welcoming, the accommodation is flexible enough to meet our needs and the various presentations we have to offer. The facilities are clean and refreshments are readily available and our needs are always catered for. This is great for our networking event in a relaxed atmosphere. Those who wish to participate in the restaurant facilities are never disappointed with the quality and choice available at reasonable cost. Access and parking is also excellent for our members and presenters. We have no hesitation in recommending this venue, which has met our needs for such a long time now, and we hope will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
