Went here with a friend to try out the roller disco and it was brilliant. The staff were lovely, friendly and helpful, plus we had the skating rink to ourselves. We are ladies of a certain age and hadn't been on skates for years but we soon got the hang of it again. There are lots of different activities here... More

I visited here for new years eve 2016 with 5 other Adults and 6 Children.. One particular female staff was extremely rude and abrupt! Not willing to help the Children when they needed help to access one of the activities! She said the Children would miss their place if they ran to us for a quick drink after one of... More

Couldn't have a conversation as music was so loud, really didn't need to be that high. Food was lovely though and really enjoyed it. If went back... More

We went as part of a local cycling group for a pre Christmas get together. We had two lanes with 6 in each team and had a great night, followed by a pre booked meal in the restaurant, with drinks, the staff were very helpful and the food was very good. Lots of car parking spaces and lots space inside,... More

Had a fantastic time at planet leisure, we skated, had a snack and then played laser quest, although the venue also hosts a Mexican restaurant, trampoline park, bowling alley and karaoke booths. Staff were as always friendly, prompt and efficient. The venue was clean and well presented, love the new refurbishments. We had a sausage bun each as a snack,... More

Great for bowling, love the sofas around the lanes. Food is ok, nothing special but the service is slow and you have to wait about 40mins before it arrives (and that was at a quite time)!

Being a few times and tend not to enjoy it. Bowling personally I find it expensive for what it is. I don't know if this is because bowling generally expensive now i dont know. But the lanes are well maintained, good balls and good tech. Never had any problems. So it's worth it. Food in the mexican wasn't the best... More
