I treated myself, Alice and Mr 9 to a bistro dinner last night while I caught up with some friends at Wenty Leagues. The Wentworthville club has a longstanding reputation for being a good value venue for dining and entertainment. It’s a place you can have a family night out, with good food and a couple of drinks, without too much of an impact on your hip pocket.

This place draws quite a crowd. There were loads of families enjoying dinner alongside patrons grabbing a bite to eat before heading into the clubs entertainment auditorium. Having Mr 9 with me I appreciated that I could walk straight into the huge dining precinct without navigating through an exclusive over 18’s area. 

My friends Chrissy, Julie and Patrick had already arrived and found us a table, like good mates, they had collected some menus too. We had a choice of five food outlets offering informal and formal dining options; Wenty Cafe, Lawsons Bistro, Dragon Noodle bar, Jasmine Asian Cuisine and Lucido Italian Restaurant. Some of their menus flagged selections making ordering easy for those looking for healthy, gluten free or vegetarian options.

The dining bar was well staffed to service the diners. Kids are not forgotten with an entertainment room on hand to keep them amused while they wait for dinner.

We ordered from the Bistro menu. It was great to see kids meal options with heaps of variety, where every meal didn’t come with chips. Mr 9 eventually decided on the kids chicken caesar salad. When the salad arrived I was impressed by the portion and the plating. The Chicken was tender, to be honest I would have been happy to eat it myself. The kids meal also came with a free drink. Until the 31st of May, an extra dollar gets them a frozen fanta treat.

Lawsons Bistro boasted they had Sydney’s best burgers. We were temped to see if they were right but our hunger pangs were not for burgers last night.

From the bistro menu Alice decided on the zesty chicken fattoush salad. I ordered the chicken madagascar, a grilled chicken fillet topped with prawns, scallops and a coconut sauce. With each bistro meal ordered we received a bar voucher for a one dollar coke, this promo runs until the 31st of May.

Chrissy ordered dory and prawns in butter sauce on mash, Julie went with the crispy coated, tender, salt and pepper squid. Patrick opted for a stir fry from the noodle bar. We all gave our meals the thumbs up.

Despite the bistro being incredibly busy our meals were ready within twenty minutes of ordering. My entire spend for the night was 62 dollars at members prices for the three of us.  This bought one glass of wine, four soft drinks, a frozen fanta and our three main meals. Those one dollar vouchers were a bonus on the second round of drinks.

Given the quality, variety and portion size of the food I walked out feeling I had received great value for a family night out. The company was pretty good too. Wenty Leagues is located at 50 Smith Street Wentworthville. You can check out whats on at the club and download all dining menus here.

Membership is currently 5 dollars a year, it will pay for itself on the first visit.
