“Wow, what an absolute pit!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

Without a doubt the tattiest bowling centre to have ever existed. I don't believe they have spent any additional money on upkeep of the facilities since it opened over a decade ago, other than a roll of gaffer tape. Shoes that were falling apart, bowling balls in such bad state that the chips out of them actually cut a party members hand. A drinks tray handed to us that was so rusty I had to check my tetanus jabs when I got home. Carpet ripped, wooden floors with holes, staff members that just grunt at you, 8 lanes out of action with out any noticeable issues(other than the very tatty decor surrounding you) all round just a shambles!

“OK as long as you like loud music”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

My wife and I don't bowl as much as we used to, but fancied a go whilst on holiday. The initial impression was that it was a bit scruffy (quite a few broken machines/pool tables and walls that need painting) but the bowling was great, we got there for the early bird special so only paid £2 a game - there seemed to be lots of deals depending on when you visit. The lanes were well maintained and the scoring machine was a lot easier to use than some I could mention. The only real downside was that the music was loud, so many places seem to think it gives "atmosphere", may do if it was decent music that reflected the crowd that was in...

Lots of lanes, good bowling alley, helpful staff. Would recommend booking especially at peak times as it does get very busy! Good for all ages and abilities.

“Brilliant for rainy days”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

We often take our family here on a Sunday morning. It is really good for people of all ages. The only downside is the food is appalling and very expensive.

“Noisy, cramped, nothing special on service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Bowling in Havant is better.
There are only 3 seats per lane, no waitress service for drinks, no space at the end of the lanes. Felt small loud and harder to work the computers.
Cannot recommend.
Yucky fried food options (predictable)
