Bowling good but food provision non existent. Totally disorganised. Attended as a large group booking of which venue had plenty of notice for. Manager more interested in getting children off the lane and out of the way to allow other users on lanes. Not enough staff and heard too many excuses of kitchen area not being big enough to mass...

Bowling has never been cheap. But this AMF is 10 minutes from the town centre. As well as bowling there are arcade games, bar and a place to get drinks and snacks. My son had his birthday here last year it was definitely good value for money, they all had a great time and we even got a photo to... More

great place to come with the family and plenty of fun although very expensive for both the games and for snacks and drinks. Would come here more often if the prices were adjusted.

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

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

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
