The venue is a bit tired and run down looking but functional. Shoes seemed fairly new and clean and staff friendly enough though didn't seem to clear away empty bottles and glasses very quickly from the tables. The reason for the one star is in the subject line. It stank of stale wee. I hope it was just a problem... More

Great fun and good prices. Could easily spend a few hours here. I wouldn't choose to eat as in my experience the food is cheap and tastes like plastic. Drinks from the bar are of average price with competitors. The toilets are a little dingy and the venue in general needs a sprucing up! Seating needs cleaning and the walls... More

Visited with my boys (3 and 8). Has bumpers available and aids for younger kids (frames to roll the ball down). We also played some of the video games. Good place to spend an hour or two.

Visited on a Tuesday evening for the bowling and meal deal. The meals were pretty good, reasonably priced and served quickly. And of course bowling is always fun!

Took my five year old and niece and nephew here for a Saturday afternoon treat but was greeted by a stag do, lots of chavs and many teenagers. I understand this is a place for people of all ages however really didn't feel comfortable being here with small children. Very loud and quite rude people there and we couldn't really... More

Not the sort of place that an old misery like me would normally go too. But the staff are friendly and helpful, the shoes new and the bowling great fun and there is a bar and bar food for those that way inclined.
