My girlfriend and I went ice climbing for my birthday. It was our first time ice climbing but we had a great time and seemed to pick it up pretty quickly. The specialist equipment was all provided (crampons, axes, helmets, harnesses etc). All you need is suitable (preferably waterproof) outdoor clothing.
Our instructor, Kate, was really friendly and helpful and made an effort to make us feel comfortable. I would highly recommend it for a great day out.

Six friends and I, the Secret Seven , had a fantastic night at the Ice Bar on Friday night. Kailiegh our hostess for the evening was amazing! She was sooo helpful and helped us to take take selfies, mixed our cocktails, I would recommend TheGrinch lol, and dealt with our food, What a night! If you haven't been to Ice Bar, get it on your list especially if Kailiegh is your host yeah!

We visited today for the third or fourth time and all the children in our group had a fantastic session on Lasertag.
As a foster carer I know about the ethos behind The Experience and have to say the management are doing a great job with the attraction.
The staff are all very enthusiastic in all areas and are clearly committed to customer satisfaction.
Previously we also enjoyed a Halloween party and all kids had a great time with the added experience of lunch in an aeroplane cockpit.
Thanks to all for a tremendous day. We'll be back soon.

Visited this twice in a four week period; after the first time had so much fun we returned with some friends to try again.
The second was best because we only had a group of four to the coach (eight the first time) so got much more time trying out.
Each time the coaches were very good and the technique is not as hard as it looks.
I can only say it’s great fun and, even if you don’t take up the sport, it’s worth trying out for the experience of a classic Scottish winter sport.
p.s. Dress code - warm (we watched a young girl in our first group get steadily chilled over the session through being poorly dressed); loose trousers (we watched a guy in tight jeans finding it difficult to move correctly and risk some personal embarassment / injury trying to stretch his legs in the proper technique).

Robertson Park

Reviewed By Jacqueline1609

Great place to take the dog for a walk. There's a dog exercise area too where you can let your pup off the lead if you're not comfortable with them being out in the open. It's fully enclosed and there's plenty room to run!
The park itself has a pond, play area, cycle route, skate park and little farm, so plenty to do for all ages.
Such a great hideaway in the centre of a busy town!

Renfrew Tandoori

Reviewed By Corrigaj - Renfrew, United Kingdom

I first discovered Charlie, the owners cooking when he opened a small kebab shop in the East end of Paisley 20 plus years ago. The food was head and shoulders around the competition back then and he also seemed try and excel. The shop was always sparkling clean.
Having tried his new venture, The Renfrew Tandoori, his standards are just as high. He has a brand new, outfitted kitchen and you can watch his many chefs cook your food as you wait. I usually order a set meal and the food is delicious, the portions are generous. As before, Charlie's venture is head and shoulders above the rest.
