Ok so the downside of Groupon is the lack of flexibility you get and having purchased this deal in July for school hols, tonight (post school hols) was the first time we could get booked in. Having seen some reviews, we had some concerns but it was good fun and for £12 for 4 including food amazing value. The nachos came out after about 10 minutes and were nice. The bowling was ok - the pins are on strings and some 'strike' balls didn't score due to this, but with the bump bars and chute my 6 yo daughter scored 90 and came second which she was thrilled with! After we had finished our bowling we sat down and the burgers (ordered when we booked in) were brought over - they were freshly cooked and hot. It is deep fried chicken burger or deep fried veg burger + chips in a brioche style roll (with lettuce!) and ketchup. It is not gourmet dining, their are no knives and forks but hey it is £12 and you have just had 1 hours of bowling thrown in as well. Both kids and adults really enjoyed it! Advice if on group on deal;

Free parking for 90 mins at Sainsbury's Stanmore
You have 1 hour for 2 games of bowling
As above food is fresh and simple but ultimately great value

We had a fantastic time for £12 on a groupon deal. Two games of bowling, nachos and burger and fries for four people at that price you can't grumble. Ok maybe just a little bit. We weren't told that you only get one hour to finish the two games so half way through the second game the lane closed. If you've got kids bowling you need to hurry along a bit to finish both games. The food arrived within seconds of us sitting down and wasn't very hot. It was tasty and we enjoyed it just a shame the chicken burger isn't a chicken fillet. I wasn't very happy when our drinks bill arrived before we had even finished eating, we may I'd stayed longer for cocktails if we weren't rushed out. Overall we had a great time, love the new decor and the tunes were pumping. We plan to go again as the deal is running until October.

We had my sons birthday party at M18 Lanes (previously called Lava Lanes) last Saturday. I cant fault the service, all the staff where very attentive. All our dietary requirements where met very well and all 30 kids enjoyed bowling very much.
Thank you to all at M18 Lanes.

Took some of my Year 9 students here as a reward trip, good price and endless food package meant just that, even for 15 hungry teenagers. Great service and very friendly.
