Easy to book. Can wear own shoes (if toes are covered). Can put gutters up per player. Drinks are quite pricey and there is only one staff on duty, which makes buying drinks whilst playing very tricky. Definitely great for all players of various abilities.

Queues on arrival. Finally got on a lane. Interminable wait every time we went to the bar. Drinks expensive. Glasses dirty. People pushing in as the staff weren't clued up enough to note the order of people waiting to be served. Massive room for improvement.

Better bowling alleys to go to & also that cost slightly less. Lane areas dirty, lane we used didn’t score correctly, second lane we got moved to then didn’t score right. Staff didn’t seem to care, no apology or compensation.
