Visited as part of a stag group where we did the air pistol and rifle shooting, and had a barbecue lunch before doing the quad bike trek.
We all had a fantastic day. The staff were all really helpful and very competent. I had a few issues with being a bit slow and scared on the quad bike, and the staff were able to help me through this. I felt a bit silly, but the lads were great at putting me at ease and allowing me to go at my own pace (sorry for being a pain if you read this!).
Lunch was plentiful and they even had veggies burgers which was great.
At the end of our day we even had a little winners ceremony where those in our group with the highest score from the morning's shooting were presented with medals and got to stand on the winners podium. A nice touch to complete our day.
If you're looking for something a bit outdoorsy with a good kick of adrenaline I would thoroughly recommend a visit to Garlands.
Overall Rating we got 5
