  • This is second visit here. Booked a lane well in advance and arrived 15 minutes before booking time to be told they are running about 5 minutes behind. No problem so went to get some drinks. 20 minute...  more »
  • A no fuss good night out for a group of people. A large bar area, service a little slow but it was a Saturday audit was very busy. Reasonable price . Facilities looked after.  more »
  • We turned up at 10.30 am and had a lovely time. Staff were helpful and place was clean and tidy. Would go again  more »
  • All staff we came into contact with were friendly and helpful without being out with it. Good atmosphere, premises clean and tidy. As a league bowler I would suggest that the lanes need more attention paid to them.
  • Fantastic family day or night out ! Staff always friendly and helpful .for our NYE party the staff went above and beyond to make sure my son had a certain drink waiting for him that wasn't served on the premises so was purchased by the staff from a local store ! Cannot ask for more than that! brilliant night had by all 5 πŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸ’žπŸ’ž
  • It's pretty good for bowling and the bar is alright but I was little disappointed by the arcade area, as it felt kinda like a sea-side casino with those 'Coin pusher' things and some fruit machines. They did have some racing and shooting games but it would have been really cool to see some classic arcade games as well. If there was a suggestion box then I'd recommend adding one or two classics like Pac-man or Galaga.
  • They made it an exciting experience by saying that if you scored a strike when the staff are watching and there is a pink pin in front then you get a free scratch card. Thoroughly enjoyed my time there.
  • Good atmosphere, American vibe to the place. Does to a cracking hotdog though. Has four pool tables and plenty of bowling lanes along with an arcade for the kids. Parking can be an issue in festival leisure due to the amount of establishments within a small vicinity. However, unless it's a Star Wars release night all should be fine.
