    Brilliant
    We were looking for something different to do for a date activity I had researched boom battle bar Exeter and so we chose this. We never booked just walked in but was greeted by matt on the desk who booked us in for golf and axe throwing. We did axe throwing first matt was a great teacher making sure we were safe and telling us how we could make our throw better. Overall fantastic place and matt was great 👍 definitely be visiting again
    Thank you for the great piece of feedback. We hope to see you again shortly!

    Fast and Fun!
    We had our company social at Boom battle on friday, and staff at reception were very helpful. Our session of Axe throwing was with Ryan and I can say he was thorough in his instructions, paid attention to every throw and gave us feedback and made the session fun. It didn't feel like he was doing a job he was enjoying the rapport he built very quickly with his friendly and open personality. thank you Ryan for making our evening fun :-)
    Thank you for taking the time to leave us this wicked piece of feedback. This makes us SO happy! Hope to see you again soon :)

    Banging Brunch
    Came here for a bottomless brunch after finally getting a Saturday off work (and the following Sunday!). The brunch was incredible, totally got our moneys worth- our waiters Blair and Sy were super attentive, even though it was understandably busy, we never went without! I can definitely say that I’ll be back for another bottomless brunch soon!
    Blair and Sy are fabulous right?! Thank you for taking the time to review us with such great feedback! Don’t be a stranger and make sure you come back for another epic brunch with us!

    Review title pp
    Popped in after wandering past and seeing all the activities on offer. Crazier golf, not to be confused with crazy golf was the particular highlight. Especially at £9pp. The staff were absolutely fantastic; Ryan, Sy and Luke were all very helpful and welcoming. All three made our evening and were lovely to meet. -pp
    We couldn’t agree more! Thank you and we hope to see you again in the near future.

    Great experience!!
    First time going and we will definitely be back!! This place is amazing!! We booked axe throwing and crazier golf for birthday celebrations which were both fantastic! Ryan checked us in at the desk with a friendly welcome and gave us tips and tricks for our activities! Matt was our host for Axe throwing and although he was a great laugh, he needs some work on his throws 😉😂 to top it off, Aj served us with a great smile and even better cocktails!! Big thank you to all the staff who were friendly and lovely! We had some great food here too so well done chefs! Sophie (axe throwing champion) & Harriet (expert at crazy golf) 🤩
    This is delightful! Thank for for taking the time to leave this epic piece of feedback. Don’t be a stranger and be sure to head back to us for even more fun than last time!

    Great Night Had By All!
    We went to Boom Battle Bar and had Ethan as a host. He is the most helpful and delightful man in there, nothing was too much trouble and he made sure everyone had a great time. He is also very good at throwing axes! An asset to the company, will definitely return and hope he will host us again! :)
    We couldn’t agree more! Thank you for such an epic review. Looking forward to having you back again soon :)

    Great experience
    This was a great experience and one you can repeat again and again, particularly if you’re competitive. I tried shuffle board, golf and axe throwing and had a proper giggle between the sneers at my competing team mates. Ryan was particularly good at hosting the axe throwing and made an out of your comfort zone activity feel completely natural and fun. The staff were all friendly and helpful, the service was great and the place was clean and tidy. I didn’t eat at The Boom Battle Bar, but I did spy a good mix of snack on the menu, including vegan options, which is always a winner.
    Wow what a great review! Thank you for taking the time to leave this incredible piece of feedback. Hope we get to host you guys again in the near future!

    What an experience
    My first experience at Boom Battle Bar for my birthday. All of the staff we so helpful and friendly. We had a great time. Ellie was on the front desk and helped us when we realised our booking was the day before. Tiggy made our axe throwing experience unforgettable with her support and cheerleading :) I would recommend.
    Thank you for this wicked piece of feedback and for leaving our team members a great review! Be sure to head back to us in the near future for more fun on our games.

    Axe Throwing was fab!
    Axe throwing newbies and we were shocking… but Ethan made sure we all had the best time! He shared endless tips on how to refine our (poor) technique and we all left laughing with all our limbs in tact. Thanks for a fab evening!
    Thank you for such a wonderful review. We love to see this kind of feedback in our teams hard work :)

    Right on Target
    What can I say but Wow, from the moment we got through the door to book the Axe throwing to the end was a fantastic experience. From the welcoming greeting at the booking desk, with helpful advice and accommodation of the fact we were a walk in and a party of two (just myself and my wife) When we got to the axe throwing area, our host Ethan was awesome, going through the H & S first and then onto the different techniques that might help with the axe throwing, honestly Ethan was great, encouraging and informative and just made the experience great fun. Both myself and Ginette managed a few bullseye's and had a brilliant time, well worth a excursion out.
    We love to read these kind of reviews! Thank you so much for leaving some great feedback. We’ll be sure to pass this onto the team!

Visited on Saturday evening for axe throwing and crazy golf for my husband's 30th with our friends. For axe throwing we had Ryan as our host and he was absolutely brilliant. He made the session more fun with extra elements like gambling our scores and he took extra care with those in the group that were struggling. He definitely made the whole experience much more fun.
Crazy golf was also brilliant and a fun little addition to our evening. We will definitely be visiting again for more axe throwing and to try the other activities.

Very welcoming staff (Ryan)!!! He showed us around and was very helpful and kind. he made sure that we had straight golf clubs to use and he was very interactive and easy to speak with. he seems like a fun guy !! My friend and i enjoyed Crazy golf and pool!!! We got some drinks and enjoyed the chilled but fun atmosphere of boom. Ryan seems like a super duper nice guy. He just is 5 stars, much like this place 10/10

Went axe throwing for my partner's birthday. Ethan was a very good host/coach and we were all able to get the axe to stick after a couple of throws.
Though some of us were better than others!
The gentleman who greeted us at reception was very welcoming and friendly and all in all the staff working there were great.
Played some pool afterwards and had a good afternoon doing something out of the norm.
Would definitely recommend.

me and my partner came in, it was so busy and only seemed to have 3 staff on… bit ridiculous if you ask me.. however, Niall really made an impression on us. we had a couple of events booked and he made sure we had everything we needed and more! he is a great credit to the company and you are so lucky to have him! even when time was overwhelming he held his head up high with a smile on his face. we will definitely be back, because of Niall and the two other bar staff!! Thank you Niall. you are amazing!!
