The venue is in need of an overhaul and the toliets and seats etc need sorted and this will all happen in our refurb next year but the bar absolutely doesn't smell of urine.

I won't say that Walkabout is overall bad, but I just had a bad experience. I've had better in the past, but when I came here recently, my Diet Coke was off in some way. Like someone put alcohol inside it or something. I asked...More

Total dump, unclean, beer was stale. John Paul( boss)....was rude and basically a ned....the venue was smelly and it was horrendous...wouldnt use this place ever again.

Management response:Responded 16 June 2017

Sorry you felt that way but as we had over 700 in that night it's very difficult to keep pristine but it most certainly isn't smelly and your comments about our sales manager couldnt be further from the truth perhaps you could expand on that?

Been a few times, very handy for a few drinks if your waiting on a film starting in the cinema just around the corner. Food is lovely and the service is always fast. Very busy at sport events times. No doubt will be back again...More
