  • Decent smaller venue for an ice hockey game. Fast service and lively crowds
  • Huge amount of free parking. Went to a Bison ice hockey match and there was a great atmosphere and a nrilliant view of the action. Be warned it is cold as a spectator!
  • Grwat game watching basingstoke bison and free skate afterwards on a Saturday night
  • Falling apart, disgusting toilets. Money spent in the wrong places
  • Good venue for Ice skating and Pappa John's Pizza
