Stopped in on Easter Sunday for a game, hardly anyone in. No atmosphere and hardly any bowling balls to choose from.

I went to this AMF with one of my granddaughters for her 11th birthday. She had invited 7 of her friends and along with her Mum and Granma. We were all treated like royalty. The staff couldn't do enough for us. Soft drinks on tap. Food served after the game. Everything went really well including an "official photo". Thank you... More

I visited AMF bowling with my younger sister at the weekend and I was seriously impressed! the staff were extremely friendly and could not do enough to help us with setting up. We ended up having three games we had such good fun. As it was the day of the grand national the staff put on a lucky dip where... More

Pre-booked 3 games and a jug of coke for myself and my son during an overnight stay to Carlisle. After a 2hr train delay we were nearly an hour late getting to the bowling alley but the staff were so lovely and managed to slot us in. We also aren't very technical so setting up and starting new games was... More

We went for the first time with 2 children (10 & 6). It was very expensive £50 for the family for 2 games. Good start, nice assistant came and helped us get set up then we started to play. We got to our third 'round' when our lane broke and we had to move (about 15mins lost due to staff... More

its bowling - you know what you're going for and the bowling is great. We really enjoyed the games But - the place is overheated, the bar and cafe service desperately slow and the prices extortionately high. It's very popular especially at weekends so book ahead, play slowly to make it last, eat before you go and share a drink!!
