“Good fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012 via mobile

After reading some of the reviews on here how its "something out of the flintstones" lets get this straight. This isnt a chain owned ten a penny american superbowl cornwall doesnt do chains. This is totally unique. We have served by the manager on the times we have been and he is always lovely. They work bloomin hard there open until 11pm and its good fun. Especially the local teams which are always lively! Its a short walk from the town centre and there is a large car park too. I much rather go to ocean bowl than some soul less chain anyday. Its got proper cornish character!

Lanes not working. Surly staff. Too much noise with bowling and loud music and tv and general hubbub

“Wear and Tear”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

Small selection of lanes, the balls are all scratched and scuffed, and the staff are lacking care. Needs a good revamp.
