When my son asked me if he could have his 13th birthday party at Ocean bowl I wasn't keen of the prospect- having read some of the other reviews on this site.. However I am so glad I caved! We showed up a bit late only to be greeted with friendly staff and lanes ready and waiting. Twenty minutes in the boys were off playing in the arcade, grandad was playing pool and I had my feet up with a brew--and a cheeky second biccy off the waitress (as I was STARVING) Luckily food was on its way.. As soon as the boys finished bowling we were ushered into the dining room, where balloons had been set up and food served. From what I had read I wasn't expecting much from the food but to tell you the truth, personally, I thought it was made to a really high standard! I had the Ocean bowl burger which was a lean burger with bacon, cheese and onion rings on a nicely toasted brioche bun. My parents aren't big eaters, especially not my mum but she licked her bowl clean (having had the quorn salad)- the vegetarian options were surprisingly great, mum hadn't seen quorn salads on any menu before + hasn't stopped going on about it since! The boys had a choice of meals from the birthday package, from pizza to nuggets and that went down well. Afterwards the staff brought out his cake with candles and we all sang. I honestly couldn't have asked for more from Ocean bowl. Not only was it an affordable birthday party, it was fun, full of laughter, with great food and a friendly atmosphere. I can't recommend it enough!
