We booked with Tony who was fab, really knowledgeable, gave great advice and really helped them both.

Our kids (8 and 10) have been coming here for over a year. The staff are great with them, they give lots of encouragement, work to each child’s strengths, and the teaching is really good. The facilities are excellent - the height & size of the old church building means it’s a great & varied challenge for climbers of all ages & experience. Coffee is great too! Highly recommend.

Reviewed By bluenoseam

An outstanding collection of arcade history & modern imports, machines that honestly are older than I am in full working order and what's better, all on free play! The age of the machines is funnily "sold out" by their coin mechanisms, they might be on free play but seeing 10p credits is a total throwback to before even my time. You name it there's a fair chance they have it on the third floor which is all ages, it's a who's who of arcade history from Space Invaders & Galaxian to slightly more modern classics like Time Crisis & with it being free play it's also less galling when your timing isn't as good as it used to be! The second floor is more aimed towards the rhythm folks but genuinely wouldn't look out of place in Akihabara - in a figurative AND literal sense! This one's over 16's only and is a heaven of dance games, random obscure Japanese rhythm games & a bunch of top notch VR stations as well just to prove that it's not all an antiques roadshow! The table flipping game though is a personal favourite, I'd seen it on YouTube but now I know why it's a cult favourite, gotta check that one out for sure! Food & drink is catered for - I didn't have any snacks while I was there but something up on the second floor smelled great & the prices are honestly of the sort of value that makes you feel like you're robbing the place! They clearly have an ethos of send the customer home happy & it shows, not very often you'll see places like this have reasonable prices on food & drink! Value for money is outstanding, under £20 and you can access both floors from opening til chucking out time, compared with what I'd spend in an "a-la-carte" arcade that's daylight robbery on my part! The machines are generally well cared for and well maintained, have to remember that in some cases the machines are 30+ years old and I dare say used to oblivion even on a 4 day week! (seriously for the age of them they work a dream!) I know they're opening a new location in Leeds but well, if they're looking for a Scottish outreach I'd support that to the hills and back! Might have taken a couple of years to get down but having been, it won't be a couple of years until I get back!

This was an incredible Gin experience. We had 3 hours of interesting facts about the Gin making process and lots of Gin drinking!! Sherel was fantastic and so passionate and also helped by Adam on the cocktail making! All the drinks were amazing, the process of making Gin was fun and I’d love to do the rum one next time!! A great brand of Gin and a well organised tour!! Oh and we also came away with our own bottle of Gin!

Booked for a group of 6 people, staff were attentive throughout Kyle especially as he greeted us and made sure we had an excellent time there, we did the Virginia house room, I would highly recommend as it was tons of fun and luckily we managed to escape! Definitely will be back to try the other rooms.
