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

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!!

Me and my partner decided on having a bit of fun so we went for a game of bowling. Yes it was fun but severely expensive. We had 2 games of bowling and 2 soft drinks and it was 30 odd pounds!! Plus it was over far too quickly. Maybe was our own mistake coming as a couple and would... More

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
