We spend a lot of time in the Forum attending shows, pantomime's etc or just calling there for coffee and cakes. The food is always good and service very good from a dedicated staff who are helpful and obliging. A nice clean eating area really enjoyed by the children and now our grand kids.

Called in to the cafe with a friend, have past this place probably thousands of times. Very clean and menu pretty extensive with reasonable prices. Service was good and staff really pleasant. Food was tasty and well presented, the place soon filled up so seemed very popular. Enjoyed my lunch and will be back.

Was rather sceptical about going to this pantomime but it was fantastic. Brilliant set, actors very funny and good mix of terrible jokes, ad libs etc. it had everything a traditional pantomime needs. Would recommend. The venue was ideal, good parking nearby, plenty of clean fresh toilets and attached cafe had wonderful food when it arrived.

My husband and I came to see Milton Jones last night. He was brilliant. Sadly the seating was awful, no leg room at all. During the show I was hoping it would go quick as the feeling in my legs were going. Kinda ruined my evening. I am 5ft 10" but those around me (who were shorter) were also commenting... More

Went here to see Andrew Newton the stage hypnotist. Venue is very good, clean comfortable, easy to get yo and the show was outstanding. Looking at the brochure there is a lot going on, I should make more use of this facility

Dropped in for a drink whilst on a day out in Barrow with my family. We were impressed with the place so we decided to stay for lunch. The menu has plenty of choice, friendly service, great for children and reasonably priced. Just one negative, we found the food took quite a while to come. All in all a good... More

I've been here to watch shows, take part in events, go for a coffee, attend parties, for information on tourist attractions and general information. Staff are always friendly and helpful, the toilets, tables, etc are always clean. A good place for the town.

I visited where my grandmother grew up in Barrow in Furness. Met with a woman at the Genealogy History who has been helpful to me even before I visited the library. I have wanted to come for years and wish I could have stayed longer. Loved the time I spent there.
