Family trip out bowling for a birthday, (7 adults). First time I had been bowling in a long time so really enjoyed it, but importantly we all had fun. Really good bowling alley with over 20 lanes available and an arcade for kids to use, a bar is available next to the alley to get drinks, and a Wimpy for... More

Had a fantastic time, don't have time to go very often but once you do go you get the bug and wonder why. Great night out with friends I don't see too often, fab atmosphere and attentive staff, nothing was too much trouble. Will not leave it so long next time.

Generally we have had a good experience here. Very unhappy today as intended to revisit the Lost & Found "retro" arcade, only to find that this has been closed down !! There was no information to this effect on the Namco website. There was a 2 hour wait for bowling, so we left disappointed. Please think of your customers in... More

My husband and I decided to treat our children (5 and 8 years old) to a bowling trip on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Booking online was a bit of an ordeal in itself - for example the "£1 per person" third game option actually added over £10 to our basket so we decided to stick to 2 games for £32.... More

I have been using this establishment for the past 6 months on a regular basis (1-2 times per week). The staff have always been courteous, considerate and helpful Apart from the occasion today. Bowling on lane 24 I noticed after about 45 minutes that both of my OWN bowling balls were damaged. Reporting this to the reception staff, I stopped... More

Went tenpin bowling on a Sunday morning for a family celebration of 2 birthdays. We found it well organised although it was busy. A special offer was on that ment it was only £3 per game per person. A good time was had by all. Will be going again on a Sunday morning.

Myself and two other childminders arrived at Pacman play on a Tuesday morning with a group of babies and toddlers. We were among the first to use to new interactive beach. We were greeted by the sound of waves crashing on to the sand then slowly the water receeded and more of the beach was exposed. With special discs the... More
