  • Great family fun with a great atmosphere. The staff are friendly and quick to help you. The food is typical fast food. The video games area is a hot favourite of he kids. The actual bowling is a little pricey. Overall it will be a fun few hours to be had. I definitely recommend a visit.
  • Very busy, like a mad house, had a couple of drinks before ,tables messy and sticky, plus waited a long time to get a drink 1 staff member on at the bar. The computer worked well on the lane ,clean seating area ,because we had suitable footwear we got to wear our own shoes so bonus. Not a great choice of balls but we managed.2 adults 2 games £26! I'm sure if taking the kids you will have a great time
  • Expect to pay loads, receive no customer service, but have fun. I needed to book a family ticket + an extra junior and the website made this incredibly difficult - it wouldn't let me add both tickets at the same time. We also couldn't phone as they only have an 084 telephone number which I cannot phone from mobile. In the end, we just went to the bowling alley to pay on the desk, only to find out you can't book any discount tickets at the desk! It was difficult to find staff to serve drinks which was odd. They didn't seem to care much. Ended up paying full price which was £61 for 2 adults and 3 kids - 2 games. The bowling alley is dead good though.
  • I'd give it 5 stars, but regardless of whether the place is busy or not 80% of the staff are either non approachable or not able to respond to calls to a lane in a timely manner. The lanes themselves are great, ball size selection is pretty good, I have fat fingers so need a large ball to play properly whereas my partner and kids need much smaller ones and they always have the correct sizes for us. The arcade area is great, can keep our kiddos occupied for hours unfortunately for our wallets! The only problem I have is the staff, they just don't seem like they care, which I just can't understand.
  • It's a good bowling alley, with lots of nice touches - the online booking makes setup automatic (names, bumper requirements etc) which is great. Prices can sting, especially if you get any drinks/food or hit the arcades. If you book online in advance, there's often a discount.
