Me and my friends used to bowl loads....we would BOWL and then MUNCH, but then the MUNCH AND BOWL disappeared....vanished....we were disappointed because we love the food there. We hope that the MUNCH and BOWL will return. That said, we have been bowling at Branksome recently and the price isn't too much difference to what it was before, you have... More

I have been here a number of the times and the staff are so friendly. And can not do enough for you. I had a 50% off voucher from my last visit so I got 2 games of bowling for 5- for just under 12 pounds- it was also ice cream Monday so all the kids got a free ice... More

Overall a great few hours of fun with the Mrs. Drinks and snacks on site easy to get to. Fairly priced and very smart and clean environment. Just a good day out.

Paid online thinking we got a good deal only to discover it was £20+ for a game of bowling and 2 soft drinks, and food was clearly frozen and some burnt, it's also in a weird location and doesnt look like much from the outside, the only good thing about this place is the staff were lovely

Went there to amuse the kids during summer hols. Book on line it's cheaper and takes less time to get started. Good fun and very competitive 👍👍👍

I recently came here with my partner and we completely shocked that you needed ID to enter... We are both 21 and don't usually need ID in restaurants and bars but for some reason we were told we could not enter without ID! This is very odd and I'm not really sure what events inside have caused this place to... More

Modern set up with digital score pads and modern screens. Normal shoes, as long as they are flat with closed toes, are allowed - this felt strange as I have always bowled with special bowling shoes before (I prefer those shoes now that I've tried bowling in trainers). Not much seating at each lane and no storage area to put... More

I use to go here once a week. I'm a support worker. However they have put the prices up so much. We use to get a burger chips and a drink for £3.50 it's now over a fiver. Unfortunately this price is too much for a limited budget. We now have a game and then go to kfc.

Great night out. Not an expensive evening, good choice of activities from bowling, pool, arcade machines and food.

My daughter wanted to go here with her friend from school. We booked which was easy to do. We got there a little early so played on the arcade machines they have there (of which they have a good selection). When the time came to play there was a small queue but nothing to worry about. The first thing I... More
