I spent 2 glorious afternoons down there last weekend.
What a great facility it is and the water was absolutely perfect but the young bloke behind the counter!! He was so slow if you shut your eyes you could hear him being slow.
I could have served 4 people in the time it took him to serve me.
If they got a normal speed boy in the queue would have been half as long.

When I was down there Sunday I was served by three different people and it took ten minutes to get in. I think they have a system whereby the lifeguards are also the refershments and admissions people, but obviously they have to ensure that the pool is fully staffed with lifeguards as well. I was a bit peeved at the wait, as the weather had been predicted for days, but it was so glorious and the water so fresh I soon forgot to be cross.

My Goooooooooooooooood! How on earth did you cope! THREE DIFFERENT PEOPLE! TEN WHOLE MINUETS!
Write a letter to the manager, bb. Or, you could just come on here and whinge, like you usually do.

Since when does sharing your experience count as whinging ? I fully admit I was a bit peeved at the wait as it was so bloody hot and there was a huge q building up behind me, but I completely understood why - they were understaffed and no one seemed to be in charge. I was responding to the initial post that also experienced a long wait, but you seem determined to have a go at me. Let me guess - you like patronising women (nice use of the word 'dear' - gives you away), and you have nothing better to do than have ago at another DFL. Back off, you immature cretin. (See - soooooo easy to throw insults around, isn't it)

Well, clearly this is ultimately down to the fact that Priory is an appaling scool and nun of the yoofs can add up or spel, and as they spend all night on the golf course shooting guns and doing crack, they're not much use during daylight hours.
Or maybe, just maybe, it was the first busy / hot weekend of the season and it'll take the new staff a bit of time to get their act together. Just chill, BB - go for a dip or summat.

Yeah, you can all cool down at this year's Midsummer Skinny Dip which, following last year's successful first event, will be held again this year at The Pells on Saturday evening 3rd July. Advance tickets available from Laporte's at £3 - cheaper than normal entry and you don't even have to wear anything!

Skinny dipping, in July, in England? It's always good to see optimism.

We were short staffed that first busy weekend but have got up to speed since. Hopefully you can all enjoy our locally made, reasonably priced and tasty food without too much of a wait from now on
