    This is a fantastic place to come and swim, the facilities are a bit tired and old fashioned but this just adds to the charm of the place.  more »

    This is a lovely outdoor pool with plenty of grassy area to sit. The staff are very polite and the lifeguards are certainly on the ball. The change rooms are very clean I will definitely return and ce...  more »

    I've only ever been to lane swimming here so can't comment on the general opening but the pool itself is gorgeous, wide lanes clear clean water, slightly heated (note that that does not mean warm!) an...  more »

  • Fantastic place for an evening swim. Closes too early at 6.30. More lane ropes would be better for serious swimmers, children have all day to enjoy the pool. It would be nice if some of the increases in admission charges went into improving the changing rooms, toilets and showers; they've hardly changed in the 30 years I've been going there.
  • The staff were unfriendly and attempted to rip me off by charging me (a 14 year old boy) the full adult price of £17 with slides for 2 juniors not even giving me a receipt . Definitely not worth the money to freeze your balls off in the ball and have plebians jump in on your head. The slide wrist bands are dysfunctional and don't remain stuck to your wrist. Definitely not worth £2.50 for some 10 second slides.
  • Been coming here for 30 years man and boy. Great place. Nothing better on a hot day than diving in to the cold water.
  • Lovely setting but sadly seems run by amateurs. Queued for 20 minutes to get in, when it's a popular sunny day you'd think they could open more than one till rather than leaving families and children stood in the carpark in the full sun. Then the slides were initially closed due to supposedly "unforeseen circumstances", which after 2 hours when they DID open turned out to be missing staff. When the slides opened we had to REQUEUE (!!) to now buy slide wristbands (£2.50 pp).... And finally, 4 out of the 6 ladies toilets were "out of order, management informed". Are 2 toilets only every legally sanitary for a few hundred visitors ???? Grrr, lovely pool sadly spoiled by poor management and maintenance.
  • Love swimming here in Summer before work - a great place for a dip!
