Rang and booked a lane for two games of bowling 2 adults and 2 children. When we arrived it smelt as if the shoes had never been de-sanitised and there was a strong smell of cheesy feet. We were given shoes which were falling apart and I had to swap mine for another pair as they were unwearable. We were... More

The chairs are threadbare. Staff are totally not interested and your treated like your an inconvenience to them. The machines breakdown regularly. The shoes they insist you ware are... More
