The manager/owner lacks manners. As students we were regular bowlers at this venue attending on a weekly basis. His staff members seem able to remember our faces and really help to make this atmosphere enjoyable. Their manager's hostility and attitude however has definitely put us...More

Looks very run down from outside and doesn't get better when you're inside! Paid £20 for a family game, it was good fun. But I wasn't comfortable leaving my car parked round the corner for much longer so we left. Friendly staff.
