“Something for everyone of all ages”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

I absolutely love the cinebowl. They do an offer of a movie and meal deal for £18 quid which is fantastic. The only thing is the food is average and the variety on the menu (which is different to the everyday menu) is very limited i.e. about 8 meals to choose from, although a starter is included in the price. The quality of the food could be a lot better but the atmosphere is great plus they do a great selection of cocktails. If you fancy something a bit more casual there is a fastfood joint next door and you are allowed to take your food and drink down to the table where you are bowling. There are also a lot of arcade games which are great fun but you are best to budget your cash as you could easily spend a fortune. Overall its a great place for either a family treat or an evening out with friends.

“Startling”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

The Superbowl comprises a bowling alley, bar, restaurant, diner, video games arcade and cinema. I am only able to comment on the cinema and the restaurant, although visitors should be aware that this combination presents a very nosy chaotic image on first encounter. One really does feel one is running a gauntlet of teenagers and young adults out for a riotous night. Those that persevere, however, will find a cinema that is brand new, extremely comfortable, well managed, with an up to date film listing. The seating is virtually armchair standard.
The restaurant is very busy and very efficient. There are basically two menus - a la carte and a shorterned two course version available as part of a deal which includes either a game of bowls or a cinema ticket. This is available at £17.95 or so, and is a very good deal. The steak with a surcharge of £2 is excellent value and very good indeed. If you don't want ot eat and arrive on a Tuesday, admission to the cinema is just £3.50. I think it's a winner (if you can get over the initial shock).

“Something for everyone”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Seems to be a bit of something for everyone here. One drawback is that it can get quite busy during peak times so waiting for pool / restaurant/ bowls can take over an hour. But, this is what you expect from such a place and it should discourage you from having a great with the plenty of amusements that are there.

“Excellent”
Reviewed June 17, 2012 via mobile

Was in here on Friday night for the first time. Great service, nice food, friendly staff and good price. The new cinema is first class. I will definitely bring the kids next time. Hopefully the offers stay we had the movie and meal deal 18 pound couldn't beat it.
