Booked for a birthday treat. Lovely food excellent service and fun time in the shooting gallery. Will definitely book again
Fantastic place, as a professional deer stalker all I wanted was a cigar room and it would’ve been heaven! Thank you all!!
good place to take a team, well organized and lots of fun
It was a lot of fun! Great for a bunch of friends to play together. Would definitely go again!!
Some confusion from staff around where and what time we should have been either downstairs or upstairs. Once sorted, all good.
Something different for a team night out and everyone hit something in the end! Was then surpassed by the lovely staff who could not have been more accommodating and friendly when we sat down to eat. Love those deep fried Mars Bars!
Really fun shooting experience! Although I think the console we had was glitchy as it kept making selections without us touching anything. Staff were lovely but things were confused at times; 1) I'd opened a tab at the bar but they forgot and made my friend pay with his card; 2) the whiskey system could be simplified.
It was my Birthday and wedding anniversary, we were given a complimentary glass of fizz and the service we received was second to none, make use of the dressing up basket with shooting jackets and hats it adds to the fun, had an absolutely fabulous time, would totally recommend, oh and they found my lost Diamond !
Loved it. Great prequel to a great steak night.
We had a great time here. I mean, as part of a ten man stag event, we had already been for cocktails dressed as cowboys, so were in jolly form heading into the meal and wild highland shoot. Exactly as good as we hoped. Thank ya'll.
Drinks were a bit pricey but great fun
Really good fun!
The whole group really enjoyed the evening at Smokey Barrels. One thing we noticed straight away was that the level of noise was such that people could still talk to each other. We've done other activities such as tenpin bowling and darts for our work socials and it is always a bit frustrating is how loud the venues are. Would definitely recommend it as a group social!
Great experience through buy a gift
We were quite disappointed with this, which was such a shame as we had been looking forward to it for a long time. We were given our space late, and the gun calibration malfunctioned multiple times - We lost around 10 or 15 mins to having to come out and restart and type names in again etc. The biggest annoyance was that we were kicked out at the end of our allotted time, with no allowance made for the fact that we had started late / lost time due to game glitches. There was nobody on after us so it seemed very mean-spirited that we weren't given an extra 15 mins in recognition of the problems we had. The staff were all lovely though.
Our waiter Alex was excellent
The shooting part was good fun
An hour shooting for £70 is not particularly good value for money but the whiskies were nice and the food was fine, although it took a little longer to come than I'd like. A couple of our orders never arrived either.
£8 per bottle for cider was extremely expensive, even considering the premium location of the venue. Also, a member of our party missed the last game due to a member of staff’s terrible timing to inform us that our time was up, but that we can finish up our game. Not ideal when the badly timed interruption meant he ruined the last game!
The game was a lot of fun, and a good team bonding event. Would have appreciated more than one drink on tap though, and for it to be sold in pints.
Great place and great time! Extremely poor service though!! We have been trying to call and email various times and can not get through. We left some of our belongings at the venue and called the following day but no response. Also no replies to emails. Have been trying to get in contact for the last four days no with no luck. Such a shame as other than that would give 5 stars.
What an amazing place. The staff were amazing, friendly, welcoming and attentive. The bar is amazing with so many whiskey's to choose from. As for the shooting, what an amazing activity! I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it. Thank you to you all for an incredible anniversary celebration spent with you. We will be back!!
