Had an excellent days tuition, shooting and hospitality. The School put on a brilliant corporate shooting day for us which I would highly recommend to anyone.

A good ground but the managers attitude leaves a lot to be desired ,abrupt ,aggressive and not at all customer friendly . However staff are generally very pleasant and helpful Targets though varied could be changed more often .
