Terrible 'food'.
Nov 2021 • Friends
Food was a joke.
Nachos was recommended by staff.
It was pityful.
Just a real insult.
Not filling. No flavour. A plastic tray with dry Nachos. Two dips, one meant to be salsa, the other yellow gloop... trying it's hardest to be a cheese sauce.
This falls very, very short of meeting any obligations, under the trade discription act.
It seem to us, that they really do not care about customers.

Enjoyed the bowling, but didn't feel safe!
Aug 2021 • Couples
This is my first visit since the refurb, and it's visually a bit childish, I prefer a traditional bowling experience, however that's not why I rated it so poorly. I thought the precautions relating to covid were poor, in particular the lack of segregation between lanes. We had to share a very small space with four people on the next lane and I felt unsafe. When they had gone, and we were playing our last game, all the lanes apart from ours were empty, but the staff chose to put a group of teenagers with us. We were astounded by this complete disregard for safety.

Nice family outing at short notice Father’s Day
May 2021 • Family
Visited yesterday for Father’s Day
Was lucky to get a space as it was very busy. The service was very good ladies on the desk showed us what to do etc.. I did noticed some adults not wearing mask which surprised me as covid hasn’t gone yet.

Sorry but I have to ask - we was sharing the bowling balls with other people which to I did see no one cleaning the balls is it all run on trust? I do think covid restrictions could be a bit tighter sorry

Masks??
Oct 2020 • Family
We visited last night with two small children, went in VIP bowling are which was excellent and good fun, most people bowling were wearing masks but when we had finished and in the amusement section, nobody were wearing masks which I pointed out to a member of staff and she did ask them all to put them on but within minutes they took them off so we left as disappointed that so many were not wearing masks .

Bowling fun, food disgusting
Feb 2020 • Family
Came today, pre booked lane as family of 4, was all good fun.
Then decided to have something to eat. Food absolutely disgusting! Ordered cheesy chips with gravy chips cold to the point cheese didn't melt, gravy thick and powdery. Just look at the photo... Gross!
Husband and children had hotdogs with chips again chips where awful.
Won't be back.
Wouldn't recommend eating there to anyone!

Great fun
Apr 2019 • Family
Booked a lane for 5.30 arrived on time and asked if we could add more people on our lane which was no problem to the staff at all!!....we had a couple of drinks from the bar which were all as expected and then played 1 game of bowling with 4 adults and 2 children. The atmosphere was good, not too busy or quiet.
If I was to complain about anything it would be that the ladies toilets didn’t seem very clean...they smelled of urine although looked ok....not sure on the gents so can’t comment on them....
Other than that a great hour or so entertainment!!

AVOID AT ALL COSTS!
Mar 2019 • Family
We attended the £7.50 unlimited bowl from 9:30 until 11:30 when it closed. It took 5 of us an hour and a half to play a game of bowling as our lane broke down 3 times. One of the times we reported the brake down to a member of staff we was left waiting for 15 minutes before having to report it again, we were then moved lanes. 2 rolls into our second game, (which only had 4 players as the littlest one had got bored of all the waiting and gone to play the arcades!) they shut the lanes down and we was told it was over. We then asked the manager if we could have a small refund and just pay for one game as that’s all we got to have due to the brake downs where we was told very rudely no and made to feel as if we was in the wrong for even asking.
The decor is extremely dated, disgusting rude staff and it seems most mechanical things brake often. The only upside is the drinks are cheap and the youths of Kettering have most definitely worked that out and the lack proper checks of ID. Throughout the game there was serveral what I can only describe as youths very drunk. I pointed my concern out to the staff and was once again rudely told they have all been through the correct ID procedure when for 2 hours we had seen the same slightly older member buying all the drinks for the crew.
Will definitely take the small drive to Wellingborough than go to this place again.

What an awful experience tonight. Manager downright rude, confrontational and aggressive. Will not be going back that’s for sure. Staff are clearly petrified of even giving out the managers name.
