Not worth the prices changed. Lanes constantly break down. Carpet and stair well are filthy, arcade machines are dated and most don't work. Slush machine wasn't working. Toilets in need of a revamp... other then that staff are friendly enough and drinks aren't too expensive.

Went for a birthday. Staff were rude and miserable. Place was filthy. What food there was it was awful. Male Member of staff was doing the electrics as well as cooking food. The place needs cleaning and staff needs changing.
