  • We had a fantastic time for £12 on a groupon deal. Two games of bowling, nachos and burger and fries for four people at that price you can't grumble. Ok maybe just a little bit. We weren't told that y...  more »

  • Went here on Groupon, tried both bowling and mini bowling. Both of which are good here. We were lucky enough to have nobody in the next lanes both times but I can see why others complain of cramped lanes when busy. Cocktails here are great, even better at happy hour. I'd give this place 3.5 if I could, part of our package was a burger and fries meal for all, which with 95% certainty I can say they must have ordered from a cheap chicken shop round the corner or something and brought it in (everything had that just-been-in-a-paper-bag texture), especially since its not on the menu anywhere. It's always preferential for a place to be upfront about what they do and don't have in stock rather than be deceptive and serve awful food to fulfill the deal. Will return of course, just no food
  • Local bowling place in Stanmore. The lanes are small and not enough variety in balls - size and weight. The animations on the screen were amazing though and gave us all a good laugh. The ambiance is nice but a bit too dark for us. We had a few nibbles too. The nachos were ok, could have been made better. The fries were good. We ordered burgers as well but the bun had eggs in them and we don't eat eggs so couldn't try them.
  • A friend of mine got a Groupon coupon for this place and so we made our way to Stanmore. The venue, at 10 minutes walk from the Tube station, definitely exceeded our expectations and we had lots of fun. We also enjoyed beers and cocktails during the happy hour (thumbs up for their Old Fashion which was properly made). Staff was kind and the service efficient. The burgers included in the coupon (with a choice between a meat or a veggie option) were not unforgettable but they worked very well in calming down our hungry stomachs.
  • Absolutely poor customer service on Grand Opening Event 08/08/2017. Was playing bowling with my family in which we paid for 2 games on two lanes that night. As we wanted to get drinks, it took the bar tender 20 minutes or more to make 1 cocktail. When we came back, just on our second game they turned the screens off, we were all puzzled so went to speak to the staff and they told us you have exceeded your time which was to play the games in 1 hour. So ended up speak to the manager - the manager spoke to me rudely and wasn't apologetic, however he did extend the game to 10 minutes in which we had to rush and get our turns in, by then the excitement was not there. I would not recommend to visit the place, if a manager is unable defuse a situation and only make it worse, its not the place to be. Unfortunately I had to give it one star, if there was an option to give M18 Lava Lanes 0 stars I would of gave it.
  • Online options were not very clear, and we got the wrong ticket. When we got there, we realised it is mini bowling. As we are 5 adults we couldn't do anything so we asked the staff. They said there's nothing they can do for us, no refunds, no changes no nothing. Would never go back there again.
