Took the kids ten pin bowling for half term entertainment and had a good time - online booking is efficient and there is ample free parking on site. You can get shoes for bowling or use your own foot ware if you prefer. We had...More

I booked online as this reduces the price and I also ordered our meals. Again this gave me a discount on food. I would have done the same for drinks but this was only an option for very few drinks. We arrived a bit early...More

A fun night, but if there was a rush on beware as service wax very slow. Gin and tonics were really poor quality, diluted with tonic on draught. Slow service, poor background noise of a game that was irritating. Game itself good

Good complex with ten pin bowling, arcade games and pool tables. Food is served and is very reasonably priced. Ten pin bowling is well priced and was enjoyable. Good experience.

Bowling here is good but needs booking evenings and weekends. Food is cheap and brought to you. Lots of fun for all and very helpful staff.

Quiet early Sunday afternoon, which is probably why there was a skeleton staff on - one on reception and the other serving refreshments. Both gave reasonable service - indicating 'the only warm spot in the whole place' - yes, it was FREEZING. Several people were...More

This place is amazing, a cross between an arcade filled with all the classics you'd expect, pool tables, bar/kitchen and the bowling lanes themselves... Took part in a Sunday session recently and saved money on 3 full games, which I believe is great value for...More
