“Awful place, will never return”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

I had to come here as its home to my closest Debenhams. The retail park has the worst speed bumps I've ever encountered and appears dull, run down and a bit dodgy. I'm sure the businesses themselves are fine, but the place is ghastly.

“It's better than you've heard.”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Star city is a reasonably good place for a meal out, numerous restaurants, both fast food and more slow paced. Ranging from Subway, Burger King to Nando's, Ma potter's and Old Orleans.
There is a 30 screen cinema here with several "Gold Class" no children allowed screens for those who like to watch there films in supreme comfort without the noise of children grazing.

Went to see Ice Age with my nephews and niece and popped into Nando's after the film, all had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed both the film and the food, what's not to like about Nando's. :)

Car park was reasonably full, but found a space within minutes and although busy had no issue getting served or seated.
Place is massively busy on in the evenings at the weekend and there can be up to an hours wait for a table, you have been warned.

There are a couple of arcades and a bowling alley, which although we have beento them in the past, didn't visit this time.

“Adventure Island Mini Golf”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

We were in the area and wanted something to suit all the family so my son found this on a website. We all love mini golf, it's something all ages can enjoy.
OK, some of the areas do look a little shabby, and perhaps it does need a little makeover but we can only comment on the Adventure Island Mini Golf, and say what a great way to spend the afternoon.
We opted for the two round family deal at £29.95, thought it was a bit pricy for a round of mini golf but if you don't rush through and enjoy every hole it's good value for money. It's over two floors which adds to the fun ! Most players are careful but watch out for stray golf balls !
The staff we met were very friendly and took time to explain things. Would definitely go again, and the bonus is ......free parking !
