Stanborough Park

Reviewed By Jules18754 - Welwyn Garden City, United Kingdom

We live locally and walked to Stanborough lakes arriving at the large boating lake. The lake is surrounded by plenty of grass and is a lovely walk. There are fishing dots and plenty of birds. My grandson enjoyed the space and the playground by the smaller boating lake. The cafeteria facilities and toilet area need improvement as during peak times they are inadequate.

We arrived with a few minutes to spare and really fancied an ice cream, but we told in no uncertain terms that the downstairs bar was closed and we'd have to go upstairs! We were so surprised and disappointed, having never been here before, to be so greeted we gave up on the ice cream, rueing the days when a nice lady with a tray around her neck would come along the aisle selling tubs! Showing my age now.
Anyway, we settled down and despite the film we'd chosen being rather boring, the seats were comfortable, toilets were clean and parking was free close by. So we'll look out for a more interesting film next time and go again.

True entertainment every time.
It may not be London's west end but the Barn Theatre continually delivers great plays with a Company of local players who wholeheartedly commit themselves to every performance. Each season the theatre offers a variety
of productions to be enjoyed by young and old. If you have the opportunity to attend an evening at the theatre don't hesitate, the ticket prices offer good value and the bar is excellent for a pre and post performance drink.

Well worth taking the time to find this place just a short drive away from the town centre. Particularly if you want something a little unusual or funky - they are doing very interesting things with upholstery, for example!Thank you for your kind review and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

We held our running club awards ceremony at Mill Green for the second time and couldn't fault the service we received. The venue has a beautiful function room that is perfect for a large or small gathering. The staff are extremely friendly and pay close attention to the smallest of details. We had a buffet which was beautifully presented and the food was too the highest standard.
Thank you to everyone at the club, especially the girl who served the reception drinks, she was brilliant! Looking forward to returning again next year!

Panshanger Golf Complex

Reviewed By iamRayRay - London, United Kingdom

A more traditional course, there are some challenges and hazards that will test any handicapper.
The clubhouse is a little dated, but certainly has the Tavern feel about it.
Shame it doesn't have a driving range but certainly I will be comig here again.
The par 3 should be avoided as it's shared with footgolf which means the state of the greens are unplayable.
