We came here whilst visiting Tamworth for the weekend with our 3 year old son and my 11 year old sister. We arrived early and were able to start bowling straight away, however the lane stopped working several times throughout the time we were there and we played 3 games, although I had to ask for the 3rd one to...

Packed with fun activites for all ages from arcade games, soft play to bowling. Not a bad place to spend an hour or two with the children.

Overall the place is not bad. It definitely needs some refurb as it's all very dated. The equipment is clearly tired as it keeps messing the scores up etc. The worst part was the staff were so rude on the front desk. No customer service at all

Had a group of youngsters from South of France staying with us for a few days and thought the end of the trip could be marked with a couple of games of ten pin. Brilliant evening. Good value for money and a great time was had by all. Fabulous end to their trip over here.

We went for a family bowling trip and it does the job for that. Good fun morning. However the booking system is crazy. Booked online and due to family emergency we needed to cancel. No refund and could only get the value on gift card. Quite frustrating. Then rebooked and arrived early. Part of the party arrived early but wouldn't... More

Family trip out bowling for a birthday, (7 adults). First time I had been bowling in a long time so really enjoyed it, but importantly we all had fun. Really good bowling alley with over 20 lanes available and an arcade for kids to use, a bar is available next to the alley to get drinks, and a Wimpy for... More

Had a fantastic time, don't have time to go very often but once you do go you get the bug and wonder why. Great night out with friends I don't see too often, fab atmosphere and attentive staff, nothing was too much trouble. Will not leave it so long next time.

Generally we have had a good experience here. Very unhappy today as intended to revisit the Lost & Found "retro" arcade, only to find that this has been closed down !! There was no information to this effect on the Namco website. There was a 2 hour wait for bowling, so we left disappointed. Please think of your customers in... More

My husband and I decided to treat our children (5 and 8 years old) to a bowling trip on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Booking online was a bit of an ordeal in itself - for example the "£1 per person" third game option actually added over £10 to our basket so we decided to stick to 2 games for £32.... More
