This bowling alley wasn’t great. Completely overrun with people. Everything’s looking a bit tired and run down. All the bumpers on the lanes seemed to be stuck up, the keypad on the lane didn’t work, there didn’t seem to be any lane/bar service. I’ve been...More

Ok, brief one by me for once. Bowling lanes very, tired they put all bumpers up and you have to manually lower them yourselves. Our lane had part of the barrier missing so it didn't help my youngest either anyway! Everything is tired, arcade machines...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

Worst ever place to take kids. All lanes no working at all..staff is very un organized. Food is nasty. Very dirty place. All staff ate very rude. It should be closed down I saw rats under the lanes. Health and safety hazard

I think only guide dogs are allowed due to the fact people are using bowling balls which may attract dogs to literally chase them down the allies as they would in the local park.
