About Smoky Barrels
Mac & WIld Devonshire Square's Virtual Shooting / Gun Room transports you to a shoot in the Scottish Highlands. Guests can practice their shot with a state-of-the-art virtual shooting system whilst the rest of the team relax, play dress up in tweed and enjoy whisky and cocktails served by the Mac & Wild loading lads and lassies.
The Gun Room, located on the lower ground floor of Mac & Wild Devonshire Square, is available to book on an hourly basis (£60 per hour). Price includes room hire and a loading lad or lassie to guide you through the shoot / targets – and serve you your drinks…of course!
Arranged a work event here for 15 people and all had a really good night. The staff were very accommodating of the menu for a larger group and the food was lovely. The only slight downside to the evening was i specifically requested a certain booth for my larger team and when we arrived someone else was in the booth i had requested, so we were temporarily put in another booth and after 20 minutes asked to move out of the way. This meant we couldn't properly start our games and was a bit awkward. Other than that, great night!
Hi, we had a great event at Smoky Barrels, entertaining our clients. This is the third year we have run it here. It felt like this year there was less food at a higher cost, but other than that we had a really good event and our clients were very happy.
We had a lot of fun coming to Mac & Wild for a couple of hours of virtual hunting - the game is good fun and the staff were lovely. It was a shame that there isn't much space other than the shooting lanes so we left once that was over. Had a couple of issues with the gun calibration but the staff let us play for an extra 20 minutes to make up for the disruption
What an excellent night out! There was 25 of us and we had the shooting gallery for 3 hours, plenty of time for huntin'. The food was excellent and it was nice to be offered a vegetarian burger that was tastiest veggie burger that we've ever had. Honourable mention, the scotch eggs. Great staff and super atmosphere. 10/10
The entire evening was an absolute blast. We had an hour with you in a party of 8 and everyone had plenty of time to participate in the virtual shoot. The atmosphere was brilliant and everyone has been talking about it since. I am sure we will be returning soon for a rematch!
We arrived a little early and were met by Alex who was very warm and friendly from the start. He made sure we had drinks ahead of our shooting session and was very attentive from start to finish, making sure we had calibrated our guns properly and knew all about the games modes so we could have the very best experience. We did have the best time and it was the most fun we have had in ages. We have Alex to thank for that so please pass on our thanks. Unfortunately, our experience upstairs at Mac and Wild wasn't as amazing. Staff were very friendly but when we ordered our main it came with no sides. We didn't receive an explanation as to why they were late. I managed to finish my burger and a member of staff said they would be on the house. I didn't really care for the cost and would have liked to have had chips with my burger. The Veni-Moo was made to absolute perfection but not having the chips did spoil it for me. When we went to settle the bill there was no extras or service charge which was nice but I just wanted to pass on the comments as we expected more from a venue like this. Also it was to celebrate our anniversary so that did spoil things a little.
i bought buy gift voucher for 2 people which includes 2 course meal and shorting experience. When we got to a part where we need to shoot after 15 mins we were told it's our last round because other people are coming even though the offer is for 30 mins. After we went to the bar we been told by another person you can still play until somebody comes. It just made me and my partner uncomfortable moving back and forwards and we did not enjoy the experience.
Although we had a great time I would like to mention how very bad my initial booking experience was. I had bought a voucher on line and so so had to call to book. I left a message as there was no answer and failed to receive a call back. I tried again a few days later to be told it was fully booked on the day I had requested. I said there had been lots of availability on line when I looked but was categorically told it was fully booked and there was nothing she could do to help. I put the phone down and checked on line again, there was still plenty of availability showing to I called back and spoke to someone different who them went ahead and booked my party of 10 in. I’m really glad I called back otherwise I would have wanted my money on the voucher as it was for a birthday night out.
We came to the shooting range for our Christmas party and it was a lot of fun, I have recommended to a lot of my friends! The staff did make us finish slightly early as the booking before us had run over time which was a bit annoying but apart from that we would definitely go again!
14 of us in two lanes in competition with each other and it could not have been more fun! Super friendly service from the bar star. All round, a fabulous experience and highly recommended!
A great activity for any occasion. really lovely staff who were very attentive all night - be warned the bar is not cheap but you are having so much fun you won't realise until you check your receipts the next morning!
Initial confusion over which location we were booked into meant a reduced amount of time shooting. Bar staff rude & drinks far too expensive £45 for two G&Ts, a rum & 3 small beers - seriously? No space to sit & order food.
Very well looked after by the staff in both the gun room and restaurant. Will definitely coming back 👍
What a great venue! Cat, Alex and the team were fabulous hosts and made our experience all the better for not having to worry about anything! Great food, wonderful atmosphere and a brilliant concept of the VR shooting range! Loved it! Highly recommended!!! :)
AMAZING!!! Cannot express enough how much we enjoyed the evening, from start to finish we were thoroughly looked after. We were shown how to use the shooting range, the staff were so attentive. Food was insanely good and all served really hot and fresh. The staff were a dream - honestly not one criticism :-) will definitely be back. Merry Christmas x
Was a great night and great venue for the my teams christmas do. Everyone loved it. Only issue was one of the guns didn't seem to be working properly. Kept working then not working then working again which was a bit annoying. But other then this it was amazing.
My team had an amazing evening for our Christmas party. The service was fantastic and the food delicious!
Absolutely Brilliant!!!! Loved every second, highly recommended...
Great time, however would have been nice for the team at the venue to tell us we were starting, as we thought we might be waiting for some kind of tutorial.
Excellent evening. Hope the shooting becomes a permanent fixture.
Very good afternoon. Would defiantly go back..... Thank you
Had a great hour shooting with a friend. Very impressed with the game play and the service was exceptional. Will definitely be back for another visit. Thanks for a great afternoon.
Small wine selection, and of the ones on the menu, not all were available.
Great group activity! lots of fun!
