Visited here in a large group! We all went for the £16.95 deal, 2 games of bowling, 2 drinks and a burger meal. Made a great night and the atmosphere was good too!

We came here for some fun before our Christmas meal. There was a mixture of adults and children. We all had a great time. Drinks were reasonably priced but we didn't have food.

Hi Pamela - Barnsley Bowl is fully accessible. We have accessible parking, an access lift to the bowling area, ramps onto the approaches, ball ramps (should you need them) and and accessible toilet. Hope this helps.
