We visited for my sons birthday treat with some of his friends. The skittles are now on strings and while this was fine for the boys I prefer them not on strings.
You don’t need to wear bowling shoes anymore and can play in trainers. The lady in the lane next to us was wearing stilettos!

Reviewed 16 February 2018

We booked in advance for Friday 16/02/2018 on line, and got a good deal including a burger, we have used this deal before and it seems popular.

2 games of bowling and something to eat at quite a reasonable price (£8.70 per child and £11.20 for adults)

With a lot of Tenpin establishments this place needs a few quid spending on it, and is a bit dark in places, and a bit tatty in others. I have previously reviewed the Star City, Birmingham Tenpin and said the same thing.

Lane 26 was a bit of a nightmare as the balls kept getting stuck in the gulley's and we had to ask the staff to come and remove them which took some time to sort out. This then made the game fr the next people to use thelane late for their game which will then of course have a knock on effect for those people who have booked.

The staff were all very friendly, some were a lottle too efficient trying to take ur food away before we have even eaten it, fortunately I was looking when the young man tried to walk off with the food.

I would recommend booking as during school holidays it gets very very busy. There were actually people complaining that they could not get a lane, but this is to be expected during a very busy half term week

The alley was never the best and although it did need updating why on earth would you put them on strings. This massively effects the pin scatter so no fun anymore, why why why.....

Avoid this place if you are used to a 'normal' alley.

Friendly staff makes an activity all worth while. Although a few technical issues with our lane the staff were helpful and my daughter had a blast. Shame about the amount of parents not having any control of their children whom were running across our lane alot. Still not the Tenpin fault
