New restaurant tees off with ten new jobs
The team behind Flanagan’s Irish Pub has opened a new venture at Belmont Hills golf course.
And Divots Bar, Grill and Terrace has created around ten new jobs for Bermudian staff at the Warwick course.
Chris Garland, director of Harbourside Holdings, which owns Flanagan’s on Hamilton’s Front Street, Outback Sports Bar and the Snug Café, said: “We wanted to create a family friendly eatery that caters to golfers, local residents and tourists.
“Fortunately, Larry Doyle, the new owner of Belmont, supported this vision and with the help of a number of talented local companies we’ve been able to bring Divots to life.”
Divots, next to the ninth hole at the course and overlooking Great Sound, took over empty space where there was once a small snack shop for golfers and turned it into a restaurant and bar, with the original snack shop now a “halfway house” with outdoor seating.
Mr Garland, at present public food and beverage concessions manager at the America’s Cup, said the restaurant was wheelchair accessible and designed to be multifunctional.
It features six TVs and a new sound system, which will show live sports.
The restaurant will also serve as a function area, hosting golf tournament receptions, corporate dinners and private events.
Mr Doyle said: “We are thrilled to see the opening of Divots at Belmont — we’ve already had great feedback from our members and expect that the restaurant will be a popular choice for locals and visitors in the area.”
The menu at the new restaurant was described as “American with a Bermudian flair”.
Andrew Trott, general manager of Divots, said: “We wanted to create a friendly, inviting atmosphere and the menu reflects that — there’s a little something for everyone.
“Not only Belmont residents but also those living in the Warwick and surrounding Paget and Southampton parishes will all be pleased, I’m sure, to have a new restaurant offering that is close to their home.”
Divots opened quietly at the end of last month and is available seven days a week for lunch from 11am and for dinner on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with breakfast at weekends, starting at 8am.
It is expected dinner will be offered seven days a week later in the summer.
