We went bowling for a birthday treat for a six year old, a family thing with 10 people .

the two lanes we were put on had faults with the pin setter only putting up eight pins on one and balls not coming back on the other... we endured

There was only about 6 staff in the entire place.. 1 in wimpy 1 in the bar 1 cleaning lanes 1 on kids play and 1 or 2 on the rest... no one was happy, no one was customer friendly (never went to the bar so he may have been ok) the lanes were mended several times and each time was a venture to find someone.. Eventually the cleaning/engineer man said we had two choices be re laned or carry on with eight pins... (How is eight pin bowling a choice)... we re laned

The man had no apologies and really didn’t care

we needed to order food but because were in a party with three families they wouldn’t order all the food as on , instead they did it in parts... and as there was only 1 person serving there was a 25 min wait between fod coming... and every order had errors... were they customer friendly... NO instead all the errors were our fault apparently. Until we pointed out that she had no idea who had had what because of splitting orders

Not one person had a smile, no one wanted to be there (staff or us in the end) and it completely spoiled a young lads birthday night (there were 3 under 6 yr olds, it was impossible to keep them happy as we were waiting for food or maintenance all the time)

I had been years ago and on staff nights out and it had never been that bad

If you do go avoid ordering food, its unbelievably slow, prices are ok but service is the worst in Tamworth.

Can get very busy, but a good couple of hours fun ,drinks and snacks available, but can be a bit on the dear side if you book 2 games. Pre booking advised

Usual ten-pin bowling alley in that it is fairly noisey from lots of arcade games!! Staff very helpful. Bowling area pretty well maintained. Good activity for all ages of our group 3-63!!

My only gripe is that the bumpers seem to have to be either up or down - not ideal for a mixed group. At Hollywood bowl that is programmed in for each bower. Pluses - a bit less frenetic than some bowling alleys
