  • Came last week for a couple of games. It's good value for money and the food is nice, but our lane broke down multiple times so we had to keep informing the staff (which there weren't many of) making ...  more »
  • I took my daughter and friends here to celebrate her birthday but wish I hadn't bothered! The lady who booked us in was friendly and helpful but things went downhill from there! The bowling is what it...  more »
  • Disabled people beware. Don't they have a Health and Safety person to pick these faults up? Good that you can bowl in your own shoes.  more »

  • Bowling is good fun and I would recommend this however I would not recommend the food as it took almost the entire two games for it to be made ( was ordered before we started ) and I saw the waitress come out with our food and look around blindly without approaching us before walking back to the counter and taking the food away. We told them which lane we were at before. When I went to ask if our food was ready the manager made it out like it was "perfect timing" and that our food was finished just as I had asked (Waiting a few minutes before I asked in case she forgot something and went to get it before giving it us). I wouldn't have minded the fact that she didn't ask us as much as I minded the part where the manager makes it out like the food was just finished and not taken to the back. I know this as it was cold when we received it.
  • Went during half term. First time been here with our kids and it wasn't cheap. £46 ish for 4 of us for 2 games. It was good to see they had changed the rule about wearing them slippers as now you can wear your own shoes (no heels). All in all it was good fun but I was amazed by the lack of smaller lighter balls for the children. Now I realise that it was half term and there was a lot of kids there but surely they have to be set up for this. We were stood waiting a lot for the lighter balls to come back through the machine again. Good experience but wont be rushing back.
  • Great place to take the kids or a group of friends to let your hair down
  • Good bowling and atmosphere but pinbresets take forever and the place is aged. Pool tables and cues need replacing and most of the arcade machines were out of order. Very expensive for Bowling considering it all
  • Visited the arcade with the family, there are a variety of arcade games available. Staff were efficient in sorting out an issue we had with one of the machines. Smiles all round!
