RBL Club

Welcome to the Broadstone Royal British Legion Club, a large and prestigious venue situated in the heart of Broadstone, Dorset. We are open 7 days a week offering friendly, welcoming surroundings with a wide range of facilities and regular entertainment.

The Broadstone Royal British Legion (RBL) Club is a small business operating as as an independent limited company but affiliated to the Royal British Legion, the charity founded in 1921 to care for those who had suffered as a result of service in the Armed Forces during the war. The Broadstone Branch of the RBL charity was formed in 1946 and the Club was founded in 1947, celebrating its 70th year in September 2017. The Club and the Charity each own parts of the building in Broadstone with the Club paying a licence fee to the RBL as well as rent for use of the parts of the building they own.

The Club aims to provide a welcoming social environment for its members, their families and guests many of whom are current or ex-serving members of the armed forces but this is NOT a pre-requisite for joining; indeed probably the majority of our members have few if any military connections.
