Lakeside Country Club
Lakeside Country Club, also known as The Home of World darts, is a top UK venue for international Cabaret, which has been graced by royalty & international celebrities.
It was built from very humble beginnings by Bob Potter OBE, owner & Managing Director of The Lakeside Group of Companies (Bob Potter Leisure Ltd), whose vision has resulted in the growth of the Club. Top international stars, royalty and high profile politicians all soon became regular visitors establishing Lakeside as “The Place to go”.
Recognising that his patrons needed overnight accommodation for the weekend events as well as to accommodate visiting business people to centres in Surrey and Hampshire, Bob’s business expanded into hotel and hospitality.
The Lakeside International Hotel was built onsite and then.the demand for accommodation became so great that the Lakeside Continental Hotel was constructed nextdoor and as that filled, Potter’s International Hotel was added in Aldershot, Hampshire – a 10 minute drive away.
In addition he opened Potter’s Steakhouse in nearby Mytchett alongside the beautiful Basingstoke Canal which is now a favourite place for diners.
The name Bob Potter is well known in Surrey. His businesses have grown and span home rentals, construction, gaming and other endeavours. Bob Potter Leisure Limited also has a charity arm which finances philantrophic endeavours in the community.
