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.

I have no idea who put the “Manager” in his position but they need to re think their decision.

I have had two interactions with this person now and he is the most unapproachable, unhelpful waste of space I think I have come across.

Everything is too much of an effort.

Tenpin ruined a birthday party this weekend by not “putting through the other properly” so they said in regards to a huge food order for 16 people. We waited over an hour for food and asked 3 times when it was coming to be told “soon, il check”. No one checked.
Fourth time we were then told the kitchen didn’t receive the order and could start it now..
No thank you! Everyone was left hungry, bored and incredibly disappointed. It was late by the time we left and everyone had to part ways and get their own take away on the way home.

Great fun on wel maintained, warm and trendy tenpin bowling. No need for special shoes, food, drinks, cool music and computer screen showing statistics, pictures, scores etc. Great family fun - we had 4 kids varying in age from 10 to 15 with us. A high five for the superbly clean toilets too!

No, just no! Got here and before even ordering the filthy bar had my sleeve of my coat drenched in beer. Staff absolutely stink of old sweat. Slush puppies was like water.
Got to our lane and realised I forgot my drink so pressed the service button. The staff never turnt up the whole game! (30ish minutes)
Food come out. All 3 dishes was stone cold. I or my two children struggled to swallow the chips they was that dry. I definitely would not recommend and I certainly won’t be coming back.

We really like Hollywood bowl, however the last 3 visits have been a struggle due to the very high temperature in the building. Staff said they have air conditioning but don't have it on in the summer! Not bowling here again until the colder months.

Staff helpful and friendly. Bowling was good value when booking on the Easter deal; 2 games of bowling and lunch for £19.99 for 2 people.
I took my son, he loved it - however the food was definitely below par. The chips were good - but the chicken nuggets / burger were awful - just tasteless and hard. So we actually ended up going to McDonald’s to eat after anyway. Saw a sign to say that bowling on tuesdays is half the price , so will return one day on a Tuesday.
My son loved the arcade too, not very big but enough in there for the little ones. Unfortunately we wanted to do laser tag but my son was too little - need to be 1.2.

Actual bowling ok……
Staff however…….
No idea about accessibility for wheelchairs (it mostly is but there is a small dip on to the lane….. with heavy electric wheelchairs not so easy but doable. They just said ‘you what?’ When asked if the lanes were accessible.
Attitude of young staff absolutely stank…… no customer service. All stood looking at you when you ask a genuine question- I asked somebody behind the desk 3 times to help my daughter on one of the machines as her money got stuck……. Nobody came after waiting a good 10 minutes and asking 3 times……. So gave up.
A shame as could be a fun place to visit but not sure we would return!

The site was messy, the lane was late - it took 40 minutes for someone to come and clean the lane. I emailed customer service 3 weeks ago for no response. Very disappointing
