Stopped in for a quick drink and game of pool, three times we had to ask someone if there was anyone available to serve us drinks.

While it was a good day. The bowling was great. Didn’t last very long but was still fun. I wouldn’t suggest having food here however. The food wasn’t very nice, in our opinion. The place was empty which should’ve told us. Won’t order that again....More

This place was a great place to hang out on Saturday night. We had a great game of bowling and the place comes with a fully equipped bar, snacks and also arcade games.

Highly unimpressed with this visit seeing as it's the holidays you expect more staff but apparently not. The queue to pick up your shoes was long but the children were excited so it wasn't that bad. The lanes were clear and well lit. After bowling...More
