we really enjoyed the bowling, very old school bowling ally's, but we liked this retro style! However we ordered food afterwards, which was dreadful, burgers like rubber and everything got cold very quickly, service was a disgrace, would never eat there again, and would certainly not recommend it.

We went here for a quick game of bowling to break up a journey and spent a lot longer than we should have in the location. The lanes are slightly updated and seemed quite slow and the balls didn't always stand up. There was not the best selection of balls either. I usually get a large size 12, but they... More

This place is virtually identical to when I used to come to "Hollywood Bowl" 20 years ago - except the balls are more chipped & lanes more scuffed than ever. To be fair, it all seems to work OK for the most part, and they do have the technician on hand to sort things (our lane worked just fine, but... More

There was nothing wrong with the bowling. However, the place is very dated and has not changed since my first visit at least ten years ago. The lane machines are so awkward to work. The shoes must be years old. The customer service desk is right in the middle; does not feel welcoming as you walk in the door. It... More

it's very expensive for even just one game of bowling, im sorry I can't remember exactly how much but I think it was around £6 which is terrible for a 15 minute game! The food is basic, not much option and the 'diner' is very tacky and run down. The place as a whole is very run down. However, decent... More

Has lost its edge, everything seems tired, arcade is expensive and no-one ever wins anything!! Think more family friendly deals and something to make the bowling exciting would help perk up business.
