This place has great atmosphere for a family activity. The food and bathrooms are decent, and the bowling was good. We went as a group of 6 (kids and grandparents) and everyone had a great time.

Visited here as a part of a Christmas party. We were early by approx 45mins and despite there being some free lanes we had to wait. The bar staff were friendly and polite. The arcade section was rather expensive. The lanes have really comfortable seating...More

Horrible serving staff and even worse food. Waiters are grumpy and slow. They did not even clean the tables before or in between serving food. Took about 2,5 hours before half of our tables were served. Games are fun ofc :-)

So took our grandchildren here on two occasions, they and we really enjoyed it, it’s good value and you can upgrade to a VIP land for another £2 a head. It’s a nice atmosphere, not overly noisy, good choice of bowling balls by weight, bumpers...More

The venue’s ‘promotion’ left a bad taste. We were told that when a pink pin appeared, an ensuing ‘strike’ would mean a free bottle of prosecco. We got the strike, and informed the attendant who then told us she couldn’t do anything as ‘if I...More

Saw this bowling alley on a previous trip to Cheltenham and we decided to give it a go. First thing I noticed when playing was it felt really small but the nice padded seats made up for that :). We didn’t order any food but...More

Poor service, poor food! No superfood salad despite taking order / payment! Issue re getting refund for excess payment! Bowling was ok, not such a large alley.

I've given this 5 stars as it's probably the best bowling alley I've been to. The place has clearly been done-up recently, and feels very good quality. Staff brought drinks to the alley and were attentive - at one point moving us to another lane...More
