A CATERING couple are on course for success with their new venture.

Business partners Andrew Matthewman, 42, and Jennifer Wadsworth, 36, have been awarded the franchise to run the popular restaurant at Houghton Golf Club, Copt Hill.

The pair said they have “big plans” for the business, named Niblicks after an old type of golf club.

“We both come from catering and hospitality backgrounds,” said Andrew.

“The franchise seemed like such a good opportunity, we had to put ourselves forward for it.”

Jennifer said they were hoping to offer a varied menu, with a range of English, Oriental and Italian cuisine.

“It’s going really well so far, and we’ve got some big plans for the place,” she added.

“We’ve had some good feedback from customers. We just hope the weather improves so more people can come to the course.”

Committee member Ann Young said the recruitment process attracted a “huge number” of applications.
