Turned up at 7.30 pm on weds to find the shutters half down and the doors unlocked. Somebody inside said they were closed but not sure if permanent or not as no signs on the door or anything on the website. Wasted journey.

It's a pretty standard indoor bowling but the staff are friendly and polite. It's on the top floor of Merrywalks car park and there is ample parking. You need to follow the car park directions as it is fiddly to find.

Plenty of alleys but some nights like a weekend, could be worth booking first as it is popular. Place is nice and clean, staff are friendly and there is a bar and food is cooked to order. Car parking is payable but not expensive.
