We absolutely love coming here when we are in Falmouth, my last visit was with my husband, our 9 year old son, plus my parents in their 70's, and we ALL enjoyed it. The staff are always welcoming and friendly and so helpful.

Great venue for group activities. Good choice of inexpensive food after a work-out on the bowling alleys. There maybe the odd malfunction of machinery which can happen anywhere but staff quickly put it right.

Living in Falmouth we regularly go to the Ocean Bowl and it is always very enjoyable. We have also often brought visiting family and friends for a game of bowling and our visitors always comment about what a fantastic fun place Ocean Bowl is. It's great value, the food and drink are excellent and the staff are very friendly. Large... More

I wouldn't recommend this, especially if you're doing it without student discount. It's expensive, the lanes broke down every other bowl, the people before us over ran and we were penalised and told we couldn't have another game despite having emailed and requesting two. The arcade is dated and the pool tables were in terrible condition and the bar was... More

Spacious, clean and well lit, Ocean Bowl provided us with everything we needed for a 10-year-old birthday party. The price, at £9.00 per child for bowling and food, was very reasonable. The bowling was fun, the food was well presented, with helium balloons decorating the clean tables. And the table football, pool table and air hockey kept everyone happy afterwards.... More

I visited this place with my friend for a chill-out day. The bowling was very expensive at £5.50 per person for a single game, which we wouldn't have minded paying it wasn't for the fact that the bowling lanes kept breaking down. The pin monkey was as miserable as sin and acted as if it was our fault that it... More
