I live near this dive and go repeatedly, it's the only local bowling alley since they closed the megabowl. It's repeatedly a disappointment. Toilets are always filthy, they use one card machine to service the front desk, cafe and bar. Most of the gaming machines...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.

Apparently they don’t take bookings or so they say when I’ve tried to book on a sat night. Accompany your little ones to the toilet as they are a real health and safety issue....
