We have just held our Christmas party at Bears Boutique Bowling and had a great time. The manager and his staff were always on hand and were helpful and attentive.
Good food and lots of it, just what you need before a noisy and exciting game of competative bowling with your work colleagues!
Onsight parking is also a big plus when in the middle of town.
Will definately visit again!

Had heard mixed reviews about this place so went with a couple of friends to watch a football match. Staff were really friendly and ended up doing shots with the owner as it was his birthday (real top guy). Got the beer pong table out was a good night – drinks are reasonable priced. Went back a couple of weeks later on a Saturday evening had live music which is always good apart from the couple who thought they were gangster rappers! Definitely a venue worth a visit at the beginning of a night out!

I first came here withal groupon voucher mid afternoon on a Thursday. The waitress seemed a bit .. Quiet and confused ? Not sure but she wasn't overly chatty and friendly but did the job. Our food was bought out quickly and tasted great. We ordered cocktails which are all freshly made and there's a great variety in the menu. Whilst we were eating there was a storm and a huge downpour of rain which caused the roof to leak. The owner apologised for this as they had to turn the electrics off, he asked us if we'd like to bowl upstairs instead in the private area which was very nice and enjoyable. The bowling lanes are very short but for me this ideal, it means you can have a quick bowling game whilst having drinks with friends. At places such as kingpin it gets a bit long winded and can take hours. There's pool, eating challenges and beer pong which is nice as it gives it an American vibe. There's still some work going on but will be great once finished. I visited again on a Wednesday night as it's close to the cinema on orange Wednesdays. They do happy hour 8-10 with £1 shots and the guy at the bar who I think may be the owner is very good with the cocktails. He offered to make us some from the new menu which is not yet out, when we asked if he could make a pitcher of a standard cocktail he very kindly agreed to this. He also made my friend a custom cocktail. Lovely place and great drinks. Pitchers for £10 are for me, a brilliant price. All other cocktails £6 which is worth the money. Very patient staff with our group of friends.
