We had a really fun afternoon on the ice rink at JW3 followed by a much needed warming cup of hot chocolate in Zest, their cafe and restaurant. Staff were really friendly and patient! We would recommend it anyone, especially if you live in the vicinity. Saves having to battle on the Tube into central London.


What a lovely afternoon out! A great little ice rink on our doorstep, the kids had a great time on the ice and I would wholeheartedly recommend the JW3 ice rink to anyone looking for a reasonably priced afternoon of family entertainment in North London.


The staff at the rink were terribly unhelpful - we went with 4 children who were novices and so we asked to use some of the many free penguin-shaped stability aids. There were plenty of spare ones, but the staff said that there were too many of them on the rink already (about 3), Then some more people arrived and with the Penguins. So we asked again and again were told there were  no more allowed on the ice. When another group arrived and used them on, we asked an extra time and was told we had to go upstairs to order them. But upstairs at the desk said that there were none to be hired (despite some being available when we left), These were subsequently allowed to be used by others. 

Meanwhile my parents went into the cafe and waited while being initially ignored then having to wait 35 minutes to be served luke warm coffee,

All round a terrible afternoon out.
