  • We didn't have a great experience here today. We booked in advance for a 4:30 single game for 4 people. The man on the desk said they were running 15 minutes behind. Fair enough. 45 minutes later our ...  read more »
  • The lane service was great and the staff very helpful. The drinks quality was not so good though
  • A nice bowling/bar/arcade in one. nice for a day out with the family or for couples or even for a day out with friends. A couple games of bowling is quite cheap for two people. there are quite a few lanes too so its quite rare for every lane to be packed but if they are, you can simply reserve one from the till. You can leave the lane at any time if you want to pick up food or drinks from the bar.
  • Normally a good day out, but lately it's been falling short. Myself and my family have been a couple of time this week and they have been far too overstretched, resulting in poor service. Both times there has only been one member of staff trying to serve both lines of people just arriving and those that have pre-booked, meaning that there were lengthy waits on both occasions. When we finally did get to bowl, the tables were very dirty, like the previous customers had squashed up their food and tipped larger over it (this didn't get cleaned for over an hour). The actual bowling wasn't great either. I didn't see anyone else having any troubles with their lanes, but ours kept freezing with the lights turning off and the pins not resetting (like the game had ended). We reported this and the pins were reset but after it happening a few times, trying to find someone to sort it out was more of a chore than just carrying on regardless, so that's what we did. Unfortunately, the scores were all out of sync as resetting the pins meant that the player would have 4 bowls and no score would be added so the kids pretty quickly lost interest. I brought this up with a member of staff who simply told me that they would keep an eye on it. I later found out that if a pink pin (that randomly appeared) was knocked down, an Easter egg would be won... although we had strikes on plenty but nothing happened. While the day was a bit of a disappointment due to all the troubles we had with the machinery, I would like to point out that most of the staff were happy to help... there just wasn't that many of them and they were very busy elsewhere. On a side note, the arcade is good fun for all ages and the kids had great fun playing for tickets, which are quite easy to win.
  • Went yesterday with 5 others. Food took forever & 3 times one of us got a strike and it then gave us another shot with no pins up. Hot dogs and burgers came after some time but it was a longer wait for chicken nuggets. Overall, our bowling session was great & i think lane 4 is my lucky 1!
  • Because I been there 2 days Ago now I'm coming back there on Ninnie's, bday
