What a class place that produces a top end pizzas like they do is anyone's guess. It's a waste really. It honesty deserves better than this dump of a bowling alley. Hopefully the surroundings don't put you off.

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance

It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
