We like to make everyone's visit to the clubhouse as enjoyable as possible so we have a few simple rules we ask all members, guests and visitors to follow.
Dress Code: Members and their guests are requested to dress in a manner consistent with the character and standing of ROSL. Members and their guests are asked to wear smart casual clothing while enjoying the Club’s facilities.
National/ traditional dress equivalents are always welcome.
The dress code applies to anyone aged eleven or above.
Members and guests wishing to take exercise outside may pass through the public spaces of the Club in sportswear but should not linger. Sportswear is not permitted in any of the public rooms at any time.
The following items of clothing are not permitted in public areas of the Club at any time:
