When my son asked me if he could have his 13th birthday party at Ocean bowl I wasn't keen of the prospect- having read some of the other reviews on this site.. However I am so glad I caved! We showed up a bit late only to be greeted with friendly staff and lanes ready and waiting. Twenty minutes in... More

Came here for a friends daughters birthday party which was booked from 2.30-5pm. It took ages for them to get our games up and running, the kids didn't end up eating until 4.30, all the food came out at different rates, it all tasted like greasy oil, had to ask them to bring out their drinks included with the meal...

Dear Jen G, Thank you for taking time out to leave us feedback. We will try to be concise on each point you have raised which was also relayed to the party organiser on the day, as means of explanation as well as monetary compensation as a gesture of good will. The party itself did not arrive in its entirety... More

Went here with the other half last night was good, we booked online and got a discount for being a LED membership which was quite good. Music was a little loud but it was ok, drinks at the bar usual prices but really nice location by the sea.

Booked a game on a raining afternoon for a birthday. Lane was broken when we started. They then spent the next 30 mins trying to fix it. We were left sitting with no apologies or expernation on what was going on. We asked for a new lane when the next was available and told we had to wait 2 hours.... More

We absolutely love coming here when we are in Falmouth, my last visit was with my husband, our 9 year old son, plus my parents in their 70's, and we ALL enjoyed it. The staff are always welcoming and friendly and so helpful.

Great venue for group activities. Good choice of inexpensive food after a work-out on the bowling alleys. There maybe the odd malfunction of machinery which can happen anywhere but staff quickly put it right.

Living in Falmouth we regularly go to the Ocean Bowl and it is always very enjoyable. We have also often brought visiting family and friends for a game of bowling and our visitors always comment about what a fantastic fun place Ocean Bowl is. It's great value, the food and drink are excellent and the staff are very friendly. Large... More

I wouldn't recommend this, especially if you're doing it without student discount. It's expensive, the lanes broke down every other bowl, the people before us over ran and we were penalised and told we couldn't have another game despite having emailed and requesting two. The arcade is dated and the pool tables were in terrible condition and the bar was... More

Spacious, clean and well lit, Ocean Bowl provided us with everything we needed for a 10-year-old birthday party. The price, at £9.00 per child for bowling and food, was very reasonable. The bowling was fun, the food was well presented, with helium balloons decorating the clean tables. And the table football, pool table and air hockey kept everyone happy afterwards.... More
