We went bowling last night and had a really good time! Staff were attentive but when we actually went for drinks there was quite a long wait at the bar?! Plenty of staff seemed to be around though?! Like I say we had fun bowling but it was not cheap. There were 2 adults and 4 kids. When I looked... More

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

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!!
