We only went to the Glo-Golf, for the price it was a little much for only 9 holes and all of them have a very similar style (middle barrier which you go through to go down towards hole). Glow in dark was fun, fun decorations but pricey for what it was. Arcade was fun! Friendly staff.

We visited RiversideBowl recently, since it reopened after the 2020 lockdown and we were very impressed with the precautions taken by the company and also the staff. We had been nervous to visit the alley but we’re made comfortable by everyone immediately. The overall experience was very fun and safe and we will be back soon!

We've had a great visit playing bowling and glow golf. Staff were all friendly and seemed to be happy to be back at work. It wasn't busy with alternate lanes closed and measures put in place to keep us all safe. I watched after the family left and the whole area was cleaned extremely thoroughly. New arcade games. Nice to see families having a good time once again. Thank you to all the staff for allowing that to happen. 🎳

Bowling was OK but only 1 staff member knew what to do
Training seems to be not a thing
Food had stuff missing and could see it lacks leadership.
Not likely to return

Ok for kids, horrible experience for any adult that is taking them. horribly loud, expensive bowling, poorly laid out menu, 25 minute wait for burger and hotdog.

Don't eat here. I don't ever want to go back. I may have nightmares

We love to bowl but it was our first visit to riverside bowl and what a great experience. Small, family friendly and clean. Staff were great with the kids even handing out stickers when my daughter got a strike. O love the fact that it's a smaller alley with less lanes makes it perfect for young children. Already planning our next visit

I called to book a lane for bowling and asked how much it was for a family of 4 for 2 games i was mortified at the answer of over £40 and because the kids really wanted to do it we reluctantly paid for 1 game at over £20. This only took us 30 minutes to play.
The music was far too loud as you couldn't really hear what each other was saying. The tables on the lanes were dirty also.
All in all not a great experience, i honestly think lower the price amd you will get many more people come in.(clean as well of course)

Lovely looking place when you first arrive , Staff are very Friendly and easy to approach, a very clean and looks a well run place , has that American theme and feel , But on thing was lacking , When I ordered a Hot Dog and Chips ( must say it was tasty ) it took a while to get once I put my order in don’t go there and think it’s a quick turnover for food , but one thing was lacking No Mustard to put on said Hot Dog , a bit poor to say the least , I would go back for sure ( but will have a bottle of squeezable Mustard in my pocket) , nice atmosphere and nice surroundings

Visited to amuse a 17 year old and a 4 year old we pre booked two games online. We arrived early and were accommodated straight away.

While they say that you have to wear bowling shoes, our 4 year.old was allowed to bowl in her shoes using the frames.

If I had one criticism, the bumpers on the lane are manual so are either up.or down for everyone, they are not automatic so that they can be up.only for selected bowlers, maybe this is normal though? I don't know.

There was a good selection of balls with different weights and different hole sizes so we were all accommodated.

Plenty of room at the head of the lane too with table for drinks and plenty of seats.

Would definitely go back.
