Old Truman Brewery, 91 Brick Ln, London E1 6QL, UK
I had such a brilliant night out here. There is a bar while you wait to play which serves well priced drinks. The course is such fun !! There are even slides to go down! It's like an adults playground. The people working here were all lovely and friendly. Just a fantastic time had by me and all my friends. Thanks !
Came here a few weeks back on a second date. We played the jungle themed course, took two of us about half an hour, should probably have booked a second and left space for a drink break in the night but wasn't sure how long it would take. A bit dingy and run down inside but I think that is the vibe they go for. It adds to the atmosphere and we both had good fun. The drinks were reasonably priced but didn't try the food. One problem was it was very hot being underground. Made us both a bit uncomfortable and sticky, wouldn't be able to do a full night in there. I would go back again to try the other courses, I think it's pretty good value for money if you are looking for something to do before food or drinks to help pad the night out and make it a bit more of an event.

Great fun. Virtual golf with real clubs and balls. Reasonably good bar snacks
If this isn't the perfect place for guys to hang out, I don't know what is! The clubs they provide are top notch & the beer is tasty!

Hi just had a lesson at DB golf very impressive lots of clear data but kept simple enough for me to understand i have been having lessons at a driving range for a year with no real improvement this is so much better Geoff Bull
Great facility in an excellent location and, most importantly, top quality coaches. Best place in London by far for golf coaching and practice.

Decent gym for men. Machines are too big for women so did not enjoy going with my wife too much. The music was banging at a crazy volume. Why have such loud music if everyone is listening to their own stuff anyway?
Good gym, though don't leave valuables in the lockers (or bring them at all). The lockers are easy to break in to as they are very flimsy (many of the locks are bent out of place as evidence of this). It's not nice to come back to you bag and find your wallet stolen and money taken.

Nice gym. 24hr access. In a good location near a yuve stop on the central line. Not a big gym. Small weights area and not many machines. It's only on one small floor. Relatively inexpensive compared to other franchises. Wouldn't recommend this as a main gym due to lack of equipment.
Solid gym with all the basic equipment you would expect. In terms of cardio machines it has all the basics from treadmills, cross trainers, 2 spinning bikes, rowing machines and step machines. The weight area is a bit limited but has one Olympic platform with squat rack, one flat bench, one Smith machine, one squat rack, quite a few benches and dumbbells up to 36kgs During peak hours, the gym is a bit too crowded so I tend to avoid it but when there's room, it's a great gym. Classes are held on the stretching area as there isn't a separate room for classes so bare that in mind if classes are your kind of thing. I pay £20 a month as I joined on an introductory offer, so it's very reasonable for me but I think the going rate is £26 a month with a £20 joining fee. Not bad for a central London gym.

Good location. Under 10 minutes from Waterloo station Open 24/7 Some of the stuff/personal trainers are a pit snobbish /arogant. The showers need maintaining, as some are working but the temperature is not constant they fluctuate between warm and very cold without touching the water mixer controls. As a member you will only have partially access to the equipment. The personal trainers will reserve in full any machines required for their paid sessions. Overall the gym could do with a bit of maintenance
Fully stocked up No frills gym. 24hrs access. A large free weights area available. Enough equipment for everyone even at busy periods. There's also enough bikes and treadmills etc for those into cardio. Also the price is attractive at less than 30 pounds.

Perfect location, friendly staff, gym is nice and quiet so I can get my workout done. Fitness classes in the sports hall are awesome. I would defiantly recommend joining the leisure centre. Overall good value for money. They have a new centre manager so things are getting done better.
Loved that leisure centre today. Much better than Kings Halls. Looking new facilities, nice staff... My little girl loved the pool with the waves and the tube slide. Just not happy with the locker taking my 20p and not locking... Will repeat for sure

2 large pools and a gym. Best time to use the large pool is from around 9am to 10am. Friendly staff and good facilities.all at a very reasonable price.
Good deal! I gave 3 stars only for the rude receptionist.

In the next six months, you'll find it hard to find many publicly available squash courts, so this place deserves stars just for being open. The courts themselves (four, three of them glass - backed) are in reasonable enough condition, but are very busy during peak hours, so go online and book ahead if possible.
It is an old building. The ladies showers could be revamped with better air circulation but overall the services they provide and the personal trainers are great

First time visiting today for the Champions League final, and must admit one of the best atmospheres for a bar I have seen for a while! Diverse selection of Liverpool and Real fans, absolutely packed! But decent place to watch the footie. Drinks selection isnt the greatest, but can still pick up a decent pint. Worth checking out when a decent game is on. I also recommend booking in advance.
A sports bar right next to one of Britain's busiest railway stations. A recipe for an insanely packed and miserable experience. Not quite. While not the prettiest bar in London it had a great vibe with 3 separate pool tables, one table tennis table and a punch bag machine (warning, this is insanely addictive and I lost a lot of money on this thing). Be aware that you'll almost definitely need to reserve in advance for tables. On top of this, more TV screens than you'd ever need showing the main sporting events. They also have a great deal going on for cocktails - two for one from 2 - 8pm. A few things let it down for me. The size of the main bar is a bit small and they need more serving staff (due to the length of time it takes to make cocktails). The fact that you need to book in advance for tables is annoying. Thirdly, the staff are quite lax about kicking people off of tables once their allocated slot is up. Furthermore, there are no real ales on tap. Overall I had a good time here and would not shy on going back.

The club's beginner's course is a must - even if you don't plan to continue fencing - great atmosphere, it provides a nice workout and a very useful and intriguing insight into fencing. I joined a club a few months ago after said course and the club is great! The coaches are absolutely brilliant and everyone can find a suitable trainer, suited to one's needs and timeframe. There are trainings almost every day so it is easy to fit it around one's schedule. And Tim and his team are very supportive and helpful. I would highly recommend this place to both beginners and competent fencers.
You won't be disappointed with this club. Spectacular coaches that will help you all your way, even in competitions. I started with the intensive workshop, and already signed up for three times a week. You have tough warm ups to put you into tone, and you have intensive sessions like the ones on saturdays running for 3 hours. You can choose location, as there are two gyms, and have a shower if you feel like it. Don't have your own equipment? No problemo, they'll lend it to you! Eventually I got mine, it's an investment, yes, but, isn't fencing worth it? And not only the fencing is great over there, but as well, the fencers themselves are all great lads, none of that brute drunken hooligan rabble you find in other sports. These are hand picked humans, finest around. After fencing we all go to the pub and chat until they throw us out. What can I say, IT CHANGED MY LIFE! But of course, that's exactly what I was looking for... PS: I no longer live in London, but I travel 1hr30min every saturday to London from Buckingham (near Milton Keynes), taking a bus and then a train and then the tube (and back). And I do that for three reasons, the club, the fencers and fencing. Were these three bad or disappointing, I would certainly had not bothered. So, what are you waiting? Join the club, I want to make new friends. PS 2: I'm back in London, fencing regularly 3 times a week. Just got back a month ago from a club organized fencing trip to Spartak Fencing Academy in St. Petersburg. You don't get these things anywhere else. Amazing place. Join now, or repent!
