The Club is mainly open between September and April and during this time there is a fully licensed bar. On weekdays the restaurant is open until 3pm serving hot meals and snacks.

There is limited opening of the facilities during the summer months.

During the summer of 2012 the Club underwent some improvements to the restaurant and seating areas with new chairs and tables throughout. During the summer of 2017, we have refurbished the Bar area as shown above in the slideshow. We atr due to relevel the rinks, add new underlay and relay the carpet. We are also having our lighting changed to low energy LED lighting above the rinks and through the club.
