Not been bowling for years but took grandkids as a treat.
With covid in mind it was very well run by pleasant staff and clean. As soon as our session finished they were cleaning everything down.
Good system in place for drinks ordering as well.
Definitely go again as fantastic trip out.

Modern bowling in clean and appealing surroundings. Good deals off peak too. Theirs also an amusement arcade with pool and games etc. They also sell food and drinks at ok prices. Nice place to visit anytime though off peak offers the better value.

Came here with friends and our children in half term as they had a great deal on in the mornings. Pre booked 2 games for 4 children while 2 parents went for a coffee in the bowl cafe.

All booked easily, very helpful. However, on the day we had an issue with our lane (7). The clearance bar kept getting stuck and we had to ask for it to be set a few times. While I understand it was half term and they were busy, they only had 2 people working who also had to cover shoes/bookings and the cafe. Only expected to stay for around an hour but ended up over 2 due to waiting for the lane to be sorted.

Please can I suggest more staff during half term deal times!!!

Sorry to say, this was a waste of time and money....where to start,
Place was dirty, staff unhelpful , it's a shame but it appears that either the management don't care or they have just given up.

I visited here for the first time last weekend, and have never received such bad customer service from the staff. I went on a Saturday and we had specifically asked for two games. The staff decided to automatically charge us for unlimited games as they decided it would be cheaper. I then asked about student rates. The man serving, longish blonde hair, refused to answer whether they did student rates, insisting that we were on the cheaper deal. When I finally got an answer, they did do student rates, he was very rude, and did not offer to change it, still insisting that we were on the cheaper rate.

We ended up playing 2 games, as we had originally requested, and if I had been charged the correct price it would have been £6.40 instead of £8.95. If the staff had done their jobs correctly, and booked what we had asked it would have been ok.

I would never recommend or bowl here again. They are money grabbing, and very poorly trained.

I’m rubbish at bowling but like to take the kids now and again as they enjoy it. Their new rule only lets kids have the sides up meaning I roll every ball down the gulley. So I just waste my money :(

I don't go bowling very often but have been to Farnborough Bowl twice in the past six months. It's a very good venue and at a good price compared with other bowling venues. Will go again.

The staff are rude and abrupt and the place is chaotic and poorly managed. Spend ages waiting for them to remove a trapped bowling ball from the lane and the entire experience was disappointing. The toilets were unhygienic and the game we played was not as fun as it should have been.

Lovely little bowling centre. Not very big so would suggest booking a slot. The staff were polite and helpful. We only stayed for one game as it had been a long day travelling but we all enjoyed it. It also has small arcade games.

We just visited today with our family and our friends family

Good time with the special deal for £19.95 for an hour bowling for 5 people

Also has a few machines, pool, air hockey and a basketball game.

Parking is cheap but you do get some of it back in the bowling
