Went with a group of 11 work colleagues on an afternoon when the place was pretty quiet which was a bit of a result as the alleys we were using kept malfunctioning. We were moved to three different lanes the balls kept not resetting propoerly...More

Our lane broke down three times, messing up our scores and forcing us to wait for half an hour to continue playing. We asked to restart the game, and were told this was not possible due to the large queue of people waiting to play....More

Online booking, we booked one game with the kids just before we went out for dinner. Lane was booked at 7pm..... it looked like the place had been busy earlier on as staff were rushing around cleaning tables. Staff were very welcoming, we could use...More

Great food. Cool arcade machines! 😎 but couldn't get a space for 3 hours. Even though there were loads of spaces. Sometime staff could be intimidating.

The alley is let down rather dramatically by the poor maintenance. The balls aren't close to being round or smooth, and the alleys themselves clearly aren't polished or anything. Of course its bowling, so it's just meant to be good fun... but it's somewhat vexing...More

Not a bad place, average price for bowling, needs a bit more air conditioning. I need to practise my bowling as I kept on leaving 3&8

Came here as a group of 3, we paid for one game of bowling and were told we'd be on lane 14. We headed over, and another family were still playing, so we decided to wait. 40 minutes later, and they still hadn't finished! We...More
