Booked a Thursday evening meal/bowling deal for 4 people. At £10 pp I thought it good value for 2 games and a burger meal. You also get a drink per person included. The meal is more of a kids type meal, basic burgers, chips, garlic...More

This is focused solely on the bar and the staff. This is the first time I’ve been here to sit and have a drink and then go and be a couple of kids for once. As a woman who works in food and beverage and...More

Never have I felt like I was going to be 'shanked' by staff. What didn't go wrong? Two lanes hired for two games turned out to periodically break. The pins got stuck, the balls got wedged and the carpet was like super glue in places....More
