  • Really old fashioned and run down. Strange smell as soon as you walk in. Pins fall over them selves when resetting. In my lane there was spilled drinks from the family next to us and couldnt sit down ...  more »
  • Had an amazing morning out with 11 friends (mixture of adults and children). Got to take part in the morning rate of only £4 for two games and fantastic service. Only downside is the premises need a m...  more »
  • I cannot believe this place is still trading! Very tired, run down and smelly. We were shocked at how bad it really is to the point where it was actually laughable - we were embarrassed to be in there...  more »

  • This is a good place to bowl, the service is fast, affordable and the place has a nice retro feel to it. However, the staff make getting coins for the arcade hard. I lost 2 pounds because the dancing machine had broke, the guy over the counter said he would call me back to return the the money. He didn't. Overall this place is worth going, but the management could be a bit more organised in my opinion :)
  • Went here on a whim on Saturday night after going elsewhere before hand & leaving after seeing it over run with screaming children running around and snotty mothers. The atmosphere at MFA was superb with well behaved kids and people all looking to just relax and have a bowl. So what some balls may be chipped and the floors a bit scuffed but the ACTUAL Lane is well oiled and computers work fine.. it’s really not bad as some reviewers are making out.. You’re paying well below a tenner per head to have a good laugh and play bowling. If you want to be a professional with perfectly shined balls go pay hundreds and join a club.
  • Went a few weeks ago now would have reviewed sooner but been busy, I have been to this place in the past and it never was great I admit but if I had anything to complain about the staff were always helpful as best they could. I'm sure we've all been there and said OMG I will never go back, but last time me and my partner still did it's still the cheapest place in Leeds so always worth trying. They're having it renovated, there was a lot more we could do, and they took into account what went wrong the previous time I'd been, did everything we asked and always made sure we were okay and enjoying our bowl this time. A member of management was there too for good reason I'm sure making sure the renovations were running smoothly, but so much respect for the gent he was so nice and the experience wouldn't have been the same without him and all the other staff from before, even if it's still not perfect it's finally getting there. So just writing out this review to make people aware it isn't as bad as before, it's getting work done and I can't wait to see it once finished, and I will continue to go back!
  • As Leeds is an amazing town for shopping and nightlife, that MFA bowling would be top notch. Pros: central Leeds and cheap, booze cheap. Cons: lanes kept freezing, had to move lanes and then that still kept freezing. Toilets stunk and wood/doors surrounded by Moulds and fungi. Manager not helpful. Bar : cheap but had people with babies in Prams and pushchairs that had been boozing all day. AVOID!!N
  • Came here for our first time and with a Groupon voucher... you sometimes expect to be treated a bit poorly if you've got a cheap deal (not saying that's right!) But.... these guys were fab! Guy booking us in was great, even went looking for light balls 😆 for my young girls. Lady behind bar counter was so pleasant too. Definitely would make me visit again, thank you team MFA Leeds xx
