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.

Popped in a couple of times with my baby nephew. Left him by a table whilst I ordered at the till. Couldn't leave the baby whilst my coffee was made so girl kindly offered to give me table service. Food offering was good. A place to visit when out shopping.

Really enjoyed our recent visit to The Forum to see The Proclaimers, so much so that we have already planned to return, despite living over 100 miles away. Don't think that there would be a bad view from any seat, good bar area, good number of restaurants very close by. Just a very nice, modern, fairly intimate venue to visit.
