Slightly grubby inside, reasonable price. As a health conscious person, disappointed by their lack of healthy food alternatives on their menu. Their staff are adequately friendly and the bowling itself is nice and modern and great entertainment for children and adults alike.

Hadn't been bowling in a while and thought it would be a fun night out, the staff were rude and disrespectful, obviously didn't want to work there! The beer both me and my friend had tasted like it was dirty! The lines needed cleaning, plus every time someone got a strike it stopped working, the engineer obviously hated people! Disappointed!

We were given shoes which were falling apart and I had to swap mine for another pair as they were unwearable. We were... More
