Completely agree with the previous two reviews. Never have I been met with such rude service. We paid a fortune for our afternoon there. Absolute complete rip off. They charged $25 per head just for us to use their bowling green, and then $35 a head on top of that for the food - yet there was barely enough food... More

I've never reviewed anything before but I felt the need to on this occasion. The staff were unwelcoming and discourteous. I made an original booking for the 2-5pm session which was denied as they were 'booked out'. However, when we arrived at 5 for our 3 hour session the greens were absolutely deserted! That did work in our favour as... More

We had a good time on a Saturday afternoon. We had one of the food packages for 8 people. We got 1-2 wings each, chips and half a steak sandwhich (minute steak not more than 4 inches long or wide). We were disappointed by the food. Fortunately the bowls was fun and the manager was very friendly and helpful. I... More

we had a great afternoon here drinking and bowling. its a relaxed, casual atmosphere and anyone can play barefoot bowls. Good for large or small groups. The problem for us is we booked for 16 people but they only gave us 1 lane which isn't enough for us all to play. 4 per team would be the max otherwise you... More

Have played at Paddo Bowls a few times and always had a great time. Most recent visit was with a large group of 60. The food and drink package was good value with lots of finger food. Great fun no matter your skill level.

If overseas tourists want to experience Australian culture, a visit to Paddo Bowls on a Friday night is a must. The good natured competitiveness (& sledging) combined with laughter aided by a few drinks is what Australians enjoy. Food of good quality and drink can be consumed while bowling & staff are friendly & attentive. After bowling, enjoy the friendly... More

Great place for group fun. Beers were too expensive. Staff were helpful and lawn bowls, whilst only for casual games, gave enough entertainment.
