This place used to be really good. Not any more! I went here last week and was told I had to wait an hour for a lane! We decided to wait, had a drink whilst waiting and the kids played on the machines. The hour...More

This place is a dump. Terrible service, poorly trained rude staff and nothing works properly. Close it down and open a decent modern bowling alley in its place. Manager argumentative and aggressive with zero customer service or communication skills.

After reading all the rotten reviews we were worried about going. However the place was spotless, staff were canny and the bowling was smashing. Can't see why folk aren't satisfied. Not cheap like, but bowling isn't. £14 for 1 game for 2 adults and 1...More
