  • Visit this venue a lot of the time and ever since they’ve had a staff turnover the service and waiting times have been shocking. They need to focus on there customer service skills as the majority of ...  more »

  • Spacious, a little arcade, snooker table. The pins malfunctioned a few times. Toilets were not clean and the baby changing room was revolting. It smelt like the nappy bin had not been changed for months. Needed a key for the changing room. Accessible and good parking with restaurants close by.
  • Diabolical! I would like to give it minus stars actually. We arrived in good time to bowl but had to queue for 30 mins, and then wait another 10 minutes to get the lane. Then we queued again for food and waited 50 minutes for nachos and chips! We had booked the lane for 3pm and we started bowling at 3.50pm. They are so short staffed, it is absolutely chaotic. I really feel sorry for the staff as they were trying their best. There was a long queue and lots of people waiting to complain! Our lane stopped a few times but it isn't the first time that's happened, as last time we went bowling with friends, the lane kept stopping. We had to stop the entire game with our friends half way through but they did offer free games to us. The food is okay, but very over priced and so is the bowling. The toilets really need to be sorted too. There are very few locks and it's filthy in the ladies. Everything needs a clean. We live round the corner and we like our bowling, but we will not be going bowling here again.
  • This place is AWESOME - but not cheap. I would say mid-range. But going in a group, and joining the club does allow you 50% off your second visit. Beers are average price, and the food isn't so great. But its not meant to be a place to eat.
  • Great place for family day out. Arcarde games are fun for all age ranges. Remember to book bowling in advance as weekends are quite busy. Big diner offers food, drinks and lots of pool tables. Definately going back there!
  • Came here at 10pm and was told I couldn't book a lane for me and my 2 mates who were with me after 10pm which was understandable, so we went off to play pool and then around 10:25-10:30 we saw that a group of 4-5 people had obviously just been let on around 10:20 ish, and then the person who refused to set a game up for us, was playing bowling with a colleague. Not very professional and annoyed.
