Ballentines Pool table and Bar area

Under new ownership and management, the restaurant and bar has, however, undergone changes that the owners hope will add to its appeal. Wi-Fi access is available for those with laptop computers and smartphones. Sunday plays host to pancakes and omelets breakfast in addition to Texas Hold ‘Em Tournaments.

Spacious and comfortable, Ballentines has sofas, a big screen TV, a pool table (on which the occasional pool tournament is held), computer access and a golf range upstairs.
