“Excellent fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2013

Lovely and cool inside so we could get away from the heat outside and have some fun. We were at gunwharf quays shopping centre and when everyone had enough of shopping there was something different to do!

“Dont have a party it isnt”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013 via mobile

Booked a party for 14 kids,if you read the online party details dont expect it thats not what you get,we were ready to start at 11, we had to wait 20 mins until our party host came over to tell us the rules,then that was the last we saw of him, no disco, no dancing, no spot prizes, no special gift for the birthday child, the food platter was poor they gave us a platter for 6, and we had paid for 14!!!! When we complained they refunded £36, didn't apologise didn't offer more food couldn't care less,in the time frame we managed one game of bowling as 7kids on each lane (all age6) another lane would of been good as there was alot of hanging around, the staff are disinterested,rude, and absent alot of the time,dont waste your money paying for a party we didnt even get to do the birthday cake and sing happy birthday as although the party started late due to the staff they still got us out at 1pm.......DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY......

“Good giggle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2013

Went for friends birthday,you get what you expect a bowling alley and a ball,make your own entertainment and the amount of fun you have is up to you,think all adults were having more fun than the kids,good place though,also on site is bar pool hall,amusements and food bar,shame staff either didn't seem to know what they were doing or were all having a really bad day.good fun all the same

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2013

We had booked and paid online for a game for a gorup pof 6. However, we still had to queue for ages to get to the desk. When we tried to (very politely) ask if we could go through, a huge row broke out... I'm really not sure what the point of booking beforehand is if you still have to wait for those who have come in without doing so get served beforehand and you have to wait?

Bowling itself was fun although the promised lights were not switched "down" until gone 9 o'clock (supposed to be from 8) as they were so busy.

Young man serving drinks at the cafe was excellent, very helpful and polite.

Suggest more staff are required on a busy weekend evening and perhaps a different till for those who have booked!
