We visited this place and found the staff and the amenities to be very good. The food was good and the service was excellent. Would visit again.

Just popped in here to have a look around, but as soon as my daughter saw the ten pin bowling we had to play. Very nice upgrade since the last time we came here was probably over 2 years ago and a very dated typical arcade.
Not anymore very good bowling alley nice screens at the the end playing all the latest videos. Shoes are all new and lanes all worked well. Not bad for £3.50 a person, drinks not too bad either. There is also a decent arcade and lots of pool tables. I am not sure about the comment from someone on here having to pay for toilets we had no issues and they are nice and new as well.

Only popped in for a drink and a couple of games of pool. Apart from the whole place smelling like feet (an unfortunate side-effect of being a bowling alley I suppose...), there is a massive problem with the pool tables!

The green one right at the end is 'out', according to the guy who you see if you have a problem, by around 3 1/2 inches! What this basically means is that all the balls congregate in a little huddle by the end nearest to the bar - maybe they all wanted a drink.... The guy blamed it on people sitting on the tables - I have a suggestion - tell them not to!! Put up a sign!

It did mean that it was probably the longest and most hilarious game of pool that we have ever had. I suppose that at least we were both suffering from the same handicap!

We tried one of the purple tables to see if it would be any better - it was - marginally!

Very nice bowling alley, reasonable priced, too. The one thing letting it down was having to pay to use the toilets.
