We arrived a little early to allow some time and used vouchers. This appeared to confuse the server but we got there in the end.

We explained this was our first time using a lane and rifle.

We went through to the range and the same server wizzes through the instructions rather quickly!

When we needed some support there was no one around. We had a couple of jams, our fault, but we needed help.
We felt like an inconvenience to the server but maybe that was us.

We finished and returned the pellet tin and walked out.
No one said bye, or asked if we had a good time, nothing really.

The server was indifferent and did not present with customer service skills, friendly or welcoming.
Having bought a gun from this business before when they were helpful, I was surprised with their front end service on this occasion.
Maybe it is not normal but having only been there twice, first time to buy a gun, and this time, it was disappointing.

Overall however we enjoyed the shooting and the lane set up but I think based on our experience average 3/5 is the best I could rate it. Sorry.

Manager and owner Gordon is fantastic, Mike at desk is great, great experience. Instructors are patient and helpful, shop is stocked and cafe is great for waiting. Would 100% recommend for an activity day with friends, family, partner, anyone!

I was introduced to the range as a fathers day gift. I ended up taking my 9 year old son in to shoot with me and we both really enjoyed it. We have been back since and will continue going - with a rifle/pistol purchase on the horizon. The range was well run and the staff were very helpful, happy to answer any questions.

What a fantastic experience. I've been a couple of times before, however this time I took my daughter and she absolutely loved it and actually wants to buy her own rifle 😂🤣

The team were fantastic and helpful.

I only picked up a rifle again a couple of months ago after decades of not owning one and have been shooting here most weeks since.
It's open and spacious in the shop and cafe area. There are 5 rifle lanes and 2 pistol lanes in a secured area. Lanes all have a wire system to take your target down the lane, and bring it back up when you need to change it. Lanes are nicely spaced and are blocked to the sides so it does feel like you're in your own little bubble in these trying times. Everything is wiped down between sessions so you do feel as safe as is possible.
Staff are always welcoming and friendly too.

We went there with our friends. The staff are very helpful always read to help. We have great fun no rush, we take it as time relaxing outing, after we all have ago with the rifles we have a coffee or a snack which is very delicious, and relax. It is a very nice place and I recommend it any time. You have to try it to experience this great fun at " The Target"

After my son had been repeatedly beating on Call of Duty I thought as he was now 13 years old it was time to have a competition with real guns, .....well with air rifles!

Booking is very easy on line and you can also hire guns & pellets.

The venue is all set indoors on an industrial estate with lots of parking.
On entering OnTarget what you first see is a huge array of pellet pistols, air rifles and practically just everything possible for the pellet gun enthusiast. To the back of the shop is a food & drink / restaurant area.

To the right is the entrance to the shooting range.
Staff were very friendly and after we paid for the hours shooting we were given a thorough demonstration of the workings of the gun, safety, and how the range worked.

On the range there were all sorts of people, some enthusiasts, couples, families, young and old. Everyday people all having a go and just having good competitive fun.

We booked range three. Each range has a A4 sized target that is suspended on a rail system that can be sent to the back of the range 25 meters away then after your shots can be retrieved on the rail / pulley system so you can see how well you have done.
There are also static objects to shoot at, these do take some determination to hit. Also have a go with the air pistol, it's really good fun.

Although my son can beat me easily at COD .......at the range I am the master, but probably not for long!!

Really great fun and I would recommend this for all types of people.

With two teenage boys it is not always easy to keep them occupied or even interested in anything for long so I thought we'd try something a little bit different. I and both my boys could not have been more happy with my surprise choice of activity. None of us had much experience of shooting but this was of no consequence as the staff at On Target were on hand to give us excellent guidance and advice on the use of both the rifles and pistols that we hired. We all had a great time and things got very competitive but more importantly was great fun. It also buys and sells guns and everything you may need which is something we will definitely be looking into in the future. Also it has an excellent cafe with homemade cakes etc and posh coffee, if that is your thing.
All in all I cannot recommend this place highly enough :-)
