“Ice hockey play off finals”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

The venue is ok and affords a great atmosphere for the play offs. The down side as always is the standard of cleaning in the toilets and in all honesty the lack of toilet facilities for a full venue.
Pukka pies - hot and tasty, drinks are expensive and it is a bit rediculous that when you buy two bottles of lager they remove both caps in the interest of health and safety - yet you can keep the cap from a soft drink bottle!!!!!
Plastic glasses are flimsy and not great quality which means they have a tendancy to tip and squash easily - suppose that increased the profits ;-)

“EPL Play offs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Decent venue and well organised event ... doors could have been opened earlier on first day due to sell out crowd, resulting in many missing early atmosphere build up ....otherwise great weekend.

“Family Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

A great place for the family, so what if you can not skate! Its great watching your kids enjoy themselves & why not have a go anyway? Food & drinks a bit pricey so wait until you go into town.

“What the Blazes!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Before getting some discounted tickets through my kids school I'd never experienced a ice hockey game. A fantastic night had by us all, family orientated and you get to drink "in the terraces". We have been back a few times and have never had a "never again" experience. I have also took the kids skating and found the staff very helpful, even helping my youngest get her skates on. Not the cheapest option for entertaining the sprogs during holidays but you get plenty of time on the ice to hone your skills or in my case polish the ice with my backside. If you live in Cov you would probably be better off parking in Spon End and walking to the venue during a Hockey fixture.

“Not the best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Bit of a monopoly, so expensive. Love skating, but no options to go to a session not rammed with rude youths, cutting you up, swearing and generally making it an unenjoyable experience.
