In the last few months of 2019 we advised you that the Browns Bonds Hill Group, who have provided our excellent bar and food service for many years, were reviewing their operations. They regrettably then made the decision to cease the provision of their fine dining experience, Browns on The Green, at Letterkenny Golf Club and relocated that franchise to Portstewart Golf Club, Co Derry.
Following that Browns Bar & Grill continued to trade at Letterkenny Golf Club but they have now decided that this business on its own does not fit with their proven business models in their other locations and have advised us that they will cease trading as a food business this weekend closing at the end of business on Sunday the 2nd of February. They will however maintain the Bar service for a number of weeks whilst we seek alternative arrangements.
We are aware that some members hold vouchers for Browns that may have been won or purchased over the past few months and we have been assured that if these are not used over the next few weeks in Letterkenny that they will continue to be honoured at all of the other Co Derry based businesses within the Browns Group. These locations are Browns Bonds Hill and Browns in Town in Derry City, Browns on the Green at Portstewart Golf Club and Ardtara Country House, Maghera, Co Derry. You can find more information at www.brownsrestaurant.com
We are very grateful for the long relationship we have had with Browns in Letterkenny and whilst this is a loss for us now we hope that we can find an alternative provider who may wish to take on this opportunity. We will seek your opinions over the next few weeks on what type of service you would like to see at Letterkenny Golf Club and at the same time advertise and canvass for expressions of interest to ensure we have something in place for the new golfing season.
Finally we wish Marcus, Ian, Sharon, Shane, Rob and all the staff that have served us so well over many years all the best in the future and will keep you updated as things progress.
