Great fun.

Great fun for everyone. The staff are really nice, the food is ok and the rink is quite a decent size. The only negative is the seating area - not really big enough (especially... read more

If you are an adult who can skate then this place is not for you. The skating space is that small that once you start you are already at the end of the skating area. Would only recommend this place if you are a total beginner or really young children.

The owners of Skate Station recently threw a birthday party for the son of a former member of staff who sadly passed away recently as a mark of respect and fondness. They catered for the thirty four children who attended as well as the adults that had brought them. They provided the venue for two hours exclusively. Not only did... More

My youngest 2 love it here and come quite often,after school. Price is very reasonable for a good 2hr session and it's never been busy, tbh it's fairly quiet for a Fri. It's good having one assistant on the rink just for peace of mind and they always enjoy playing the limbo. The only minor fault is the condition of... More

Great fun for everyone. The staff are really nice, the food is ok and the rink is quite a decent size. The only negative is the seating area - not really big enough (especially hen there are birthday parties on) and not particularly comfortable for those not skating. Very basic and really chilly in winter! All-in-all though a good trip... More

Cost to skate is £6 plus £2 if you need to hire skates. The staff are really nice, I really enjoyed the game of limbo that they put on. Food and drink prices were OK. All the kids were pleasant and helped one and other up if anyone fell over. Nice little place.

Jackie H, Owner at The Skate Station, responded to this review

Thanks for the feedback. I would just like to confirm the cost is £6 including skate hire, £4 if using own suitable skates and free to spectate. Thanks again. More

I Booked my sons 10th birthday party here. I cannot fault it for one thing. The kids had a fantastic time. The staff are more than helpful and very polite ( don't get this everywhere you go ) my son and his friends loved every minute of it, they weren't happy when it was time to go. The party food...

My daughter attended a party at Skate Station a few weeks ago. This was our first visit to Skate Station and we were really impressed. Have promised our daughter a trip here at a weekend or in the holidays, as she thoroughly enjoyed herself, was not intimidated by other skaters and felt very grown up! As a parent, I was... More

I visited on 16th Feb with around 30 children from our school fast club. I was amazed how the manger Jackie was. She had a big smile on her face and was so kind to all the children and patient. I've never come across someone who was so lovely. I was stood watching as the children went to buy refreshments... More

Not bad for a converted warehouse. Good for kids parties but little over priced. Could have more of a selection of food besides the usual chips, hotdogs etc.. but cant complain keeps the kids quiet and entertained.
