Just need to do a +ve review as some odd reviews complaining about paying to use a facility, the childcare things. You have to expect to pay for a service and a very busy (when I have walked passed) childcare area. So would expect to pay for any childcare facility/service.
The Cafe has a good range of sweets and rolls etc, lots of nice home baked stuff - pineapple frangipan - to eat.
There is no other facility for climbing within Europe anything like RATHO. You can climb for many, many hours for £9 or less, depending on discounts you may use.
Overall an excellent evening or day venue for Climbing.
