Have been here a few times it's always been fairly busy when we have visited. If like me your no expert and have a daughter that is just learning it's probably best to go when they have kids sessions only. There were quite a few...More

Great family place for an afternoon. Kids aged 11 loved it. I don't think the £2 spectator charge should be used though. There was a good selection of drinks but not food, but the food was lovely and fairly priced. Will come back again.

No, but they do provide baskets at the shoe counter. Think you pay £1 and they store it and give you a ticket.
