We also have pool tables, arcade games, air-hockey tables and a licensed bar. The centre has recently been re-painted on the inside, but this is only the beginning of our makeover.  New toilets, exterior paint-work and bowling equipment are all on its way in 2015.


The centre is currently under New Management, so if you haven’t been in for a while we would love to see you.
