Called in with my wife just for a drink. Our first visit and we found the cafe to be most pleasant and very modern and clean. Drinks good and not expensive and must admit the cakes looked very good.

Went to see pantomime (Peter Pan) at the Forum in Barrow with 4yr old grandchild. An excellent production and thoroughly enjoyed by children and adults alike. Well done to Barrow. The theatre was well presented with good staff. Would recommend a visit.
