This place needs to be shut down and bought into the 21st century... the staff are so rude, the food and add entertainment are embarrassing, hygiene a disgrace!! Waste of money and shocking experience! Someone should revamp the whole business here. Please find this review...More

Awful customer service, phoned and asked for help with booking for game of bowling to be told he wasn't prepared to help as he was "too busy". Came across as very rude. Will never go there again.

We were easily able to get a lane without a booking. The staff were friendly and on hand quickly when needed.
