You got to walk downstairs then it opens out into such a large long venue! Loads of bowling lanes, an arcade section for the kids, a lovely but expensive bar and a fast food place :)

Some friends were visiting and wondered what we could do which would be a little different and not weather dependant so, booked a few games at Bowlplex. The first thing that struck me was the overwhelming noise - far too noisy and unnecessary. We ordered some drinks whilst waiting for friends to arrive and the bar seating area had a gathering of quite young children with no supervision who were jumping on the furniture, laying out on sofa's and moving chairs around whilst sitting in them. I appreciate it is a leisure facility however dirty shoes on furnishing are not good for the next person sitting on them!

Didn't have to change shoes as the booking receipt advises soft soles shoes which was a bonus as you are never sure who had the shoes before you when you have to use a communal pair! The technology was easy to use, and we had an enjoyable time, it was unanimous amoungst us that it was too noisy in the bar area so we popped down the way to Franky & Benny's which was a far better bet!!

Disabled access is via a lift which you need speak with staff to use and an intercom facility is there for this purpose, there are a few flights of steps and noted several families with buggies manhandling them down the stairs. I can appreciate if there was free access to the lift the children may be riding the lift unnecessarily leading to failures etc and then becoming a problem for those disabled persons needing to use the lift.

2 games for 4 people was £40 - it is £5 per adult and £4 for under 16's

A great place to take the kids. We love it because we can take our 7 year old even if we are not bowling ....which is great fun..we can also have a drink and play on the machines with our little one whilst listening to music. It's lively its smart and its just lovely at last to have a modern family fun place. Not the cheapest drinks but not too much dearer than weatherspoons and you don't get the louts !!! Also fab for watching internationals
