Before or after the match you'll always receive a warm welcome in our Social Club.
The Social Club assured its place in history when, in 1967, it became the first ever Highland League Social Club.
Prior to this the club had been St. Drostans Scottish Episcopal Church. The building was purchased from the diocese for the princely sum of £600 in November 1966 and following a lot of hard work, mainly carried out by local folks – free of charge, the club was opened in July 1967. At the time of writing this there has been much interest shown regarding the fact that this was an old church – so much so that the serving minister at Aberlour Episcopal Church has intimated his wish to hold a special service in the premises in the near future. The layout of the club has, of course, changed since the early days with the Public bar now being situated on the original site of the Lounge bar.
The main hall in the club is suitable for a wide range of uses and is utilised by a broad spectrum of members. During the winter months we see it being used on Monday and Tuesday evenings by the Rothes Indoor Bowling Club. Sunday, Wednesday and Friday evenings are reserved for “your favourite game”. Coffee mornings and Tombola nights are held on a monthly basis.
The club is becoming increasingly popular for wedding receptions. The close proximity to the church makes it an ideal venue for local newlyweds to greet their guests following the ceremony.
Although we welcome outside caterers, our in – house caterers are happy to prepare meals for up to one hundred guests and provide an evening buffet for the reception.As with weddings, Anniversary and Birthday parties are equally popular events within the club. The low rental rates and competitive bar prices makes the club the perfect venue for any type of party or budget.
The Social Club is an ideal venue to hold funeral teas as the lounge and hall allow a large number of mourners to gather without feeling cramped and affords the bereaved the space for privacy if so desired. Charges for funeral teas are very competitive.In keeping with the relationship between the club and Rothes Football Club, the social club is always happy to welcome players, officials and supporters of visiting football clubs and is delighted to supply them with post match catering.
