AVOID!
Feb 2020
AVOID THIS PLACE! Booked and pre-paid online several days ago to bowl here at 10:30 this morning 22nd Feb.... arrived at 10:15am to find the place was shut!!! Premises should have been open from 10am! The bowling alley finally opened at 11:20 but only thanks to the cleaner who had been waiting outside since 09:45. The cleaner made numerous calls to staff members who should have been there to open up but none were answering! Finally someone turned up at 11:20 to open up.... Didn’t start bowling until after half 11 ... over an hour later than booked!.....Menus were dotted around the place but no hot food available....The only snacks that were available was popcorn or cheesy nachos......Vending machine also completely empty of snacks....Appalling place! Has become very run down ....The young guy who did turn up to cover for the absent staff deserves a medal!! The staff that should have been there this morning who couldn’t be bothered to turn up for the start of their shift should receive a disciplinary! Won’t be going here again!!!

‘Welcome to the most advanced bowling complex in the area. With AMF’s brand new and first in the UK new pinspotters and glow lanes, you are sure for quality and value.’

I’m not sure which establishment this describes but it certainly isn’t Alley Catz! We recently went for a work night out, the lanes kept breaking and at one time we were stood for twenty minutes waiting for it to be fixed. It was cold, dirty and out-dated. Although we paid for two games and could only play one because of the lanes not being fit for purpose, staff refused to give us a refund and instead said we had to email someone, surprisingly nobody has replied to the email either. Staff were less than helpful and kept trying to offer us a voucher to return which we explained would be unlikely as we have no desire to visit again after their incompetence to complete a service that night. I would avoid this place unless you want to be disappointed and leave without getting the service you have paid for!

Heating doesn't work. Lanes don't work. Staff are unhelpful and I feel well and truly ripped off. This place needs some serious tlc to be a decent place again.

Very dissapointed

I have used Alley Catz many times over the years with both friends and family, never experiencing an issue, enjoying the game.

Sadly when I decided to return on the 26th of July with my girlfriend we had so many issues with the lanes that we ended up just leaving. I payed for three games; the first game went smoothly but the second game (this is still on lane 1) kept repeatedly missing a few pins so I alerted a staff, it seemed to then fix itself at first but it kept repeatedly not placing down all the pins. I saw a staff member again and we were moved over to lane 4. We continued our second game from where we had left off and shortly after the lane went dark as if it was not being used or turned off, again, a member of staff was helpful in trying to resolve the issue and after a few bowls we were moved again because lane 4 turned off again.

By the time we were on lane 7 we had both lost all interest in playing because the second game had taken so long. We left 1/2 way through the third game because it was no longer fun. As a result of this I asked at the bar if it would be possible for a partial refund because it wasn't the quality I was expecting, they apologised and handed me a business card for their manager because they couldn't apparently.

I sent two polite emails to the address on the card over a short period of time and had absolutely no response. Not even an apology! I just don't think that this is acceptable and have told many friends/family about my poor experience.

Disgusting
Sep 2017 • Family
Took my family here today for my sons 6th birthday and was disgusted. The place was dirty, the staff unhelpful, the lanes kept messing up and after being moved lanes twice and only managing 6 rounds with an hour and a half we requested a refund, the staff refused point blank to deal with us telling us it has to go through head office or it's classed as theft, we requested to see the manager however she was too scared to even speak with us and stayed hidden in the back and instead called the police to escort us out of the premises because we hadn't accepted she can't issue a refund. I wouldn't waste your time or money in this place, it's a disgrace and over priced for what it is.

OMG the most vile place in town
Jul 2017 • Family
The photos show faeces smeared on the wall in the bathroom over the sink. Was told it was there yesterday, certainly was there at 8pm tonight and still there at 11pm. By all accounts the gents toilets were cleaner than the womens. This is not acceptable, thoroughly repulsive. 7 out of the 10 lanes not working, no fizzy soft drinks due to machine broken, no draught beer due to machine not working. What an awful night.
No soap dispenser in the toilets for 3 months now

Still breakdowns with the lanes
May 2017 • Friends
We come here every month and every time the lanes stop working and we have to swap lanes. Or only 9 pins come down. It's a good job we are not too competitive
