    Been there a few times but I'd say if you wanted to bowl to ring before hand and find out what is and what is not working before you go. Last time I was there it appeared not much was working. But the...  more »

    Not our best experience today here after many visits and previous kids birthday parties. We had booked a lane for the kids summer offer with friends but the lady serving us had no idea what she was do...  more »

    I used to bowl here regularly but stopped a while back. Attempted to go for my sons birthday but wasn't good from get go. Staff were unfriendly, unhelpful and down right miserable. Felt that we were p...  more »
  • Having not been to this bowling alley for such a long time I'm so glad we chose here over tenpin at Derby. The staff were really friendly and welcoming. The lady advised us on the best deals and informed us of the email sign-up. Overall it was excellent value for money on the day, particularly in comparison to how much it would have cost on the same day at the same time elsewhere. As well as bowling there was a good selection of games in the entrance area including a pool table, air hockey table, grabber machines, slot machines and more. There was a good variety of drinks available and these were reasonably priced. Comments can't be provided on food but I'm sure you get what you pay for, as ultimately this is a bowling alley and not a michelin star restaurant! The only reason I haven't given the full 5 stars is because the inside (and out) was looking a bit tired and ready for some serious TLC. A fresh coat of paint, some new wall art and furnishings and it'll definitely be worthy of 5 stars from me!
  • Ok bowling alley. Lots of slot machines. Drinks are at reasonable prices. Nice friendly staff. The biggest problem it is run down and needs lots of refurbishment. For a seasoned bowler, like myself, the lane conditions are so erratic it is difficult to enhance your game
  • Very run down, lanes kept sticking, child guard was broke on one side so didn't keep the ball on the lane. Big jug of squash tasted like it had washing up liquid in it.
  • Ok...... So not only is the MFA very un-clean we had to keep stopping and starting our game as I wanted the sides up for my 5 year old and they where up then down had to keep asking to get them put up again! And PLEASE do NOT eat here!!! My son had a hot dog and when I had ordered it I looked as if the steam cooker looked off but though it clearly can't be as they had 2 sausages in my son got his food the dog was dark grey and did not smell good I took it straight back and she just looks at me gone out telling me it was put in fresh this morning so it's not fresh and it was from the night before or they are clearly ok with putting gone off food in the steamer ?? My sons since then been sick and had been with out a full tummy of food since then due to being ill! I also have a tuna wrap that was dripping wet and no gloves was used to make my food I could see her cutting up salad so £10 on a gone off hot dog that's made my son ill and a dripping wet tuna wrap that was so un- pleasant to eat. This was my first and only time at MFA bowling Ilkeston I will never go again!
  • Amazing place for a family day out, great experience and lots of arcade games to top the day off. They serve drinks (beers,slushies...) And food, and they even do birthday parties.
