We opted for the party night which includes a meal, a drink and two games of bowling. The food is as you would expect it to be in a bowling alley but it was served... More

Been here a few times with our teenage daughter and her friends. You can get a drink and bar food all at reasonably prices. The staff are friendly and helpful. The place is a little tired but that doesn't detract for the fun. Worth a visit.

I had got my timings wrong and the manager was so helpful sorting out lanes for us, She kindly fitted us in as early as possible as we thought we couldn't book in advance on a sunday (website not clear on this). It saved the day as it was my nephew's birthday. One of our party was in a wheelchair... More

Visited Bugsy on many occasion as I live locally. Never really had a bad word to say until now? we visited as two families with 6 children for a game to celebrate our friends 5th Birthday. It seemed just because we had young children we were targeted to ''Hurry it along'' as a Christmas party had arrived early... The bad... More

A bunch of us from our school reunion group met up and took up Bugsy's £16.99 Bowl and Dine deal which also included a drink from the bar and I have to say that the whole evening was a great success made even better by the service of the staff and the manager himself! Great value for money and something... More

We visited and forgot to book a lane but decided to wait. We decided to let our teenagers play a few games of pool while we waited, we were charged £5 deposit for the pool cues which we weren't aware of when they put the money in the pool table. It ended up being an expensive day out for 2... More

A family visit for some fun on a Sunday evening. It was £1.50 a game each which we thought was a bargain but this does attract lots of custom so it was busy and we had to wait an hour for a lane which can't be helped we were happy to wait. (can't book in advance on a sunday). A... More
