The Ascot club is nestled high on the mountains in Waynesville NC. The venue is very nice along with a lovely staff and very good food. Always look forward to having dinner there.

Our peaceful Lakeside Dining Room, with its fireplace and breathtaking views, is guaranteed to lower your blood pressure. The floor to ceiling windows allow for unobstructed views of the lake and mountains, giving guests the feel of being on an Alpine retreat.
We also offer a bar menu which is a more casual setting in our mansion bar. The mansion bar bar snacks from 2:00pm - 10:00pm Monday through Sunday

Guests are as comfortable in a jacket as they are a collared shirt to enjoy award-winning Chef's seasonal menus, inspired by the surrounding forests and mountains, lakes and streams.

As always, Benne was great! My husband and I had tried a few weeks ago for brunch and liked it so much that we came back yesterday with my son and family and again, it was amazing. The food is great, the service was great, the ambiance is so nice and the wait staff was so helpful and kind. We will be back over and over again!
