Can’t believe the bowling alley get away with talking to people so disgusting. The manager Erin is a real delight so is her colleague Lorraine. Tried to log a complaint but they don’t make it easy. Only go if you’re desperate!

Very rude staff! The place is disgusting needs a good clean! Manger (Erin) is very rude and not helpful at all. No wonder the place is going down hill! If I was you I would stay away!

Thankfully I only booked one game, the place is unbelievably run down. There were ceiling tiles missing, water stains on the ceiling and walls, the lanes are worn and the balls are rubbish. Everything felt dirty I felt grubby when we left. Thankfully we kept...More
