This place is more about the entertainment than the food. We went for the food, so this review is based on that. It was okay, a bit put off as the couple that sat next to us were given an expired bottle of Heinz mayonnaise. The store manager said they refill the Heinz bottles, sounded very odd to me. Refillable bottles should have the date stickers on them showing when they were refilled and when they should be thrown out. Also, wouldn't you brand refillable bottles? Anyway, the couple got a replacement meal. Our meal was just fine, the hot dogs are bland, we ordered the roulette wings which are supposed to be different levels of spice, that's a lie. Overall, the food was edible. Aside from the food, there are ping pong tables (you get hit with balls quite a lot whilst eating or drinking) and lots of TVs showing football for the fans. It's an okay place, as I said it's more about the football and ping pong tables than anything else. If you have no interest in those then you'd have fun elsewhere.GOOGLE REVIEW

Great place. Had a few goes on ping pong and pool. Brilliant place for groups and for drinks, never tried the food. I put a couple of hours in with my son while wife and daughter shoppedGOOGLE REVIEW

Visited more recently as lockdown was being relaxed. Seating was outside with take service. We were shown quickly to our table and our orders were taken very promptly. Selection of beer is still good, food not bad. Think I'll choose something else than a hotdog next time, wasn't value for money IMO. Good service, nice atmosphere. Somewhat random music. There's a hand pull on the bar suggesting that ales may be available, but this wasn't the case on my visit. Regardless, there's a good selection of beers from keg and a wide range of drinks in the fridge. A decent place for an hour or two on a Friday night.GOOGLE REVIEW

Really friendly staff. Went during indoor ban so was sat outside. Food came out slightly cold, ordered wings, chips and pizza. Good portions, and taste was OK. Nothing wow, but great place to catch up with mates over a few snacks. Mains were available but didn't have anyGOOGLE REVIEW

Really good atmosphere. Had a nice game of table-tennis here with my friend. They provide a bunch of free balls too, than just the one, which is nice. 1 star off because £20 for a table seemed a bit pricey.GOOGLE REVIEW
