We went today on a Fun May Day promotion. I was a bit apprehensive at first, given the bad reviews on TripAdvisor, but I'm now really glad I went. In spite of the promotion, the ice rink was fairly quiet so our whole experience was very chilled out and relaxed. Unlike what others have said, the staff were extremely professional,... More

The wonderful Hannah and kind Kim were a godsend. I didn't have to do a thing, they dealt with unexpected extra guests coolly and calmly, they were cheerful and really just couldn't do enough for us, a credit to Silver blades. the kids had the best time EVER, food great, organisation wonderful, they sorted the cake and temperamental candles and...

Myself and my husband bought our 2 young children to the ice rink today and have had the worst 2hrs out ever. We had to wait for 20minutes before even getting into the rink as the cashier at admissions was constantly on the phone to other employees. We hired 2 penguins for the children for an hour each we had... More

We consider this a malicious and false review. There wasn't a queue at the time of the visit and nor did a visitor ask to speak to a manager. If penguins had been hired and left around the rink, then they would have been returned for the duration of the hire. Having investigated this review with staff, no member of... More

There was juice available for the kids and we got free tea and coffee vouchers for the parents. The kids had a great time, they had over 2... More

My 8 year old had her birthday here and she thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a party host who was great with the kids, organised their food, got their skates, helped out on skates, got them penguins and looked after them on the ice. She then helped with the food and drinks. It was very good value for money, with... More
