We’d never fished before and we’re looking to do something different. The staff were patient and helpful and the fish were plentiful. We caught so many that our arms ached and we had to stop. Really good with teenagers - small children will struggle.

It is extremely tiring pulling the fish in but if a small fish is hooked they could do it. Would still be a good day out as lots of fish are caught and great cafe is there as well.
