Spent a fun afternoon with family celebrating a 60th birthday. We were brilliantly looked after by a delightful young lady called Grace, she was efficient, polite and extremely patient- nothing was too much trouble- a real credit to the company!

There is lots to do at the AMF Bowling Washington building. Great place to go with friends and family to pass the time. Lots of arcades but the prices for bowling a little high.
