Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

amazing fun! enjoyed by all. the music and quality of sound was an unexpected bonus. Full Void Acoustics? Possibly the greatest soundsystem in a bowling alley in the world

We booked a birthday party for my son. Party went very well. Booking was easy and on the day the staff was very helpful. Place seem clean and food was good and came out on time. I would definitely recommend for birthday parties.

The staff were rude and impatient. I enjoyed bowling, however, it’s a shame how I was treated upon entry overshadowed my evening. I probably won’t return due to the service.

Good first time visit on a Friday afternoon with teenagers - left them to bowl and the adults had a hot drink.
Service was friendly, I wasn’t sure after seeing the reviews but all was good. Yes we had to pay £1 per person on entry but I wouldn’t have complained as the bowling was reasonably priced.
The DJ had the tunes flowing from about 4pm - had a cheeky dance as no one else was around.
Would definitely return here for bowling - good experience

Terrible vibes. Seems popular with 18 year olds and creeps. Didn’t do bowling so that aspect might be worth it, but as somewhere to go for a drink/dance I would not recommend.

Totally disgusted with this place. I wish I had looked at the reviews before attending with my family.

Let me start by saying that I had no preconceptions beforehand. As soon as we arrived, we were told we had to pay an entry fee in addition to the money we had paid online for the bowling.

We then went to our lane after checking in to find no small children's balls available. After pleading with another party of children, we got a ball for our child only to find the only ball guide/launcher was broken so when you rolled a ball down it, the ball veered to one side.

My wife went downstairs to get some refreshments for us and was gone for what seemed like an age. Whilst we were waiting for her to return, we had a member of staff ask us to carry on playing. We explained that we were waiting for my wife to return and they seemed to be put out that we weren't just taking her turn for her.

My wife returned to tell me that some drinks were unavailable and we then had to waste more time by going back again as they wouldn't bring food to the lane. I understand at busy times this might not be possible but get this...

I counted 4 staff upstairs on their phones, not paying any attention to the customers and then downstairs it looked like the entire team was just dossing about behind the bar. Some were sat down in a corner, a couple on their phones, and I heard one even talking about not wanting to be there because of the massive hangover they had.

So we wasted time having to go back downstairs to get the food. There are big signs stating no food and drink on the lanes, so we left our refreshments directly above the sign on the table only to turn around and find that a cleaner had come along and disposed of it. This table is literally less than 2m away from the bowling space where we were bowling.

Crazy!

Add to this that the sidebars kept jamming and not coming up for my child, and it was really the most terrible experience. Given the lazy attitude of the staff there, I can understand that the equipment isn't maintained to any standard hence the issues.

Find somewhere else to go. I'm doing a charge back on my card as I was disgusted and will never go again.

We visited on a Saturday night in January.

The staff were very helpful and checking in to play bowling was easy when booking online. The bowling was very fun with access to the arcade after and a bar with cheap prices for London! We had no issues at all and it was a great evening out.

As we went on a Saturday, it was very busy, just bare this in mind if visiting on a weekend, especially in holiday season. It was easy to walk to from where we were staying and also right across from the tube station. Overall, a great time despite the £1 entrance fee per person which I don't think apply when already paying for a game of bowling.

I got cut off from the bar with no explanation. I came here with a work function. Scored 96 on my game of bowling. After a few drinks and a arcade game or two went to the bar for a single shot of whiskey. I was refused service. Being witlh a large group of people I just got someone else to get my drink in. However the second time I asked for the manager because I felt as sober as a judge and younger and less thy intoxicated members of our group were being served cocktails.

The bar staff seemed to be picking and choosing who was ok to served.

If you reading this and deciding
Where to go for a work place function I have two words for you ........ Hollywood Bowl

Iv been to be two childrens party's at the site in Surry keys Hollywood bowl and actually been waited to on. Yet at a adult party at Rowan's iv been treated like a child by staff at least a decade younger than myself.

It seems like if you female n got curves u will get served but if Ur male and skinny u can't get a whiskey without judgement.

Basically if Ur going for a work function and any
Of Ur group like a proper drink, Just go Hollywood bowl. U will get personal service and not be mugged off at the bar.

The door staff try to trick you into thinking that you have to undertake ID facial scanning upon entry, but this is entirely unacceptable and breaches GDPR. I, and my party refused and we were allowed in.

DO NOT allow them to breach your fundamental right to privacy.

Rude door men making up rules as they go. Humiliated my friend. Bad vibes. Bad attitudes. Bad conduct. I will never go ever again.
