Members Testimonials


“I think the Artists Rifles Clubhouse is truly unique. Firstly it provides access to a range of activities (from keynote speakers to fullbore shooting) that you are unlikely to find in a single location anywhere else. Then there are the members themselves. They’re a key part of the mix as they’re generally a very interesting bunch indeed – and yet completely approachable and inclusive at club events. Finally the ability to enjoy all of this in a fascinating clubhouse with good food and great company makes it a venue very hard to beat”

Why not try one of our Sunday Lunches? Most of us come to the Club to shoot, or for a lecture or entertainment with a buffet, but this is an opportunity to sit down together and enjoy one of Chef’s excellent meals, for which we are rightly gaining a reputation. When there are no other distractions, it makes you realise just what a comfortable Club we have; the bar area is cosy and characterful, and the dining room looks splendid with the fire burning. More than that, it is the ideal opportunity for us to get to know each other better in an informal atmosphere, and for social and shooting members to come together. It has enabled me to renew old friendships and to get to know the in-coming members better, and I can thoroughly recommend it. It is also very good value!

“We thoroughly enjoyed the unique atmosphere surrounded by history, good company, special time with husband, children and parents in law. We loved the three course meal and the boys said the main course of steak was “succulent”. Thank you so much for a warm and excellent service and we look forward to celebrating valentines with our friends at the Artist Rifles next year”.

Family Shooting and Social Members


I have been meaning to write for ages to say how much we enjoy all that happens at the ‘Bisley Hut’ ; the ambience is superb, nicely informal but still special; the staff are perfect (in particular you, Graham and Chris are so welcoming and so attentive) and the events are of the highest calibre. This year we have attended three and have brought friends to all of them. Like us they have been so impressed by the speakers and the variety of subject matter. Having organised speakers for an organisation myself, I know how much work goes into making it all seem so easy and effortless. Congratulations and keep up the good work please. I am sorry you missed Saturday evening. Mike Nicholson was absolutely riveting – we all agreed that we could have listened to him happily for another couple of hours. We also very much enjoy coming for Sunday lunch where we can sit and relax over a pleasant meal. Of course Rocky’s birthday bashes are legendary.

Members New Years Eve Party

This is just to say thank you so much for a lovely evening on New Years Eve.

Jonathan and I had a lovely time and appreciated your care in making sure we had congenial and interesting company. We were so beautifully looked after; we met some really lovely and interesting people. Also I cannot think of any other place where a frozen terrier would be accommodated at a Black Tie Do!

Thank you again for such a happy evening – elegant and relaxed which is quite a feat and the food was delicious!


Private Party Shooting Day and Lunch

What an excellent day, we all enjoyed it so much. The lunch was certainly remarked upon. It was delicious! Please thank all the team for their hard work and especially their patience! At no time did any of us feel they wanted to do anything other than give us all a good time. The instruction was superb and the format great fun.
