  • A good cheep way to entertain kids and family. Watch out for special deals online, certain times can be cheaper and quieter. Bracknell's Hollywood bowl looks a little dated outside, but inside is stil...  more »

  • Very busy bank holiday Monday, we managed to make a last min booking and didn't have to wait long. A few glitches with the game but staff soon resolved them and kids had a lovely time.  more »

  • Compared to some other alleys, this one is looking a bit old and run down, HOWEVER. The lanes seem well kept and have good oil, my reactive ball can react great up the top end. The staff were also nice and friendly! However on one visit, there were definitely not enough staff to cope with the amount of customers. Reason for 3 stars is that Air-con was switched off on a fairly hot day, and it's impossible to go outside for fresh air if you have young ears due to a mosquito alarm to deter and discriminate against young people.
  • Have used it since 2004. Friendly,helpful atmosphere. Food & drink is served on each lane if required. Separate bar facility,pool tables & gaming machines are plentiful. Toilet facilities are located at either end of the 28 lanes. Pre-booking is advisable.
  • Ridiculously under staffed, old and run down. We received an email saying there was a Halloween party on for kids, when we got there the staff had no knowledge of it. Lady who took our order had to disappear for 10 mins to get her order pad, took our drinks orders, then disappeared again for 10mins before she could take our food order. Food arrived at the end of our game, and it was cold and pathetic. Pin got stuck in lane, asked for help, none ever arrived. Arcade ticket machines were out of order, 2p change machine not working, no staff available to help. Basically a rubbish experience all round, and paid £50 for the privilege!
  • Nice afternoon out with the kids. Bowling was a great laugh for all of us and its nice that there is food available at one end near the arcade and a bar at the other end with pool tables. Suitable for various age groups and kids parties. Staff were very helpful when setting up lanes and also very polite.
  • The bowling was good but the grabbing toys game the claw is bull. But good time.
