Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your experience at Brechin Lanes. You're right; our birthday party staff, front counter staff and kitchen staff all work very hard to ensure that kids' birthday parties at Brechin Lanes are the best in town. Our birthday party hosts make parties so easy that parents can sit back and simply enjoy the day. Let US deal with all of the little details! From bumper bowling to fresh, homemade pizza, birthday parties at Brechin Lanes are always fantastic! We hope to see you again soon at Brechin Lanes.
