Waited about 15 minutes before someone came to the desk. Thought £15 for 1 game of bowling is expensive. Shoes were rubbish, kids shoes didn't stick so every time my daughter walked they came undone and didn't have Anymore size 11's left. Had to wait another 10 minutes for a member of staff to help with the keypads coz we couldn't enter the names. All in all, rubbish and not clean!

All very basic. The bar wasn't too badly priced, although you can be stood there like a lemon waiting for half an hour for bar staff to serve you. I think they are also next door in the kitchen taking orders and cooking. Saves the company money, but not very fair on the staff, or the customers who spend a fair bit of time just standing and waiting.

The bowling balls all have chinks or dents in them, there isn't enough small sized balls, so my 9 year old was having to attempt to heave a Sz12 down the lane.
Very overpriced arcade with ticket machines. As an example 100 tickets may get you a chuppa chup.
It could potentially cost you about £10 to get 100 tickets!
Food is very very basic, pizza, burger, nuggets etc. Best thing about it? They now serve Costa!

Bowling is overpriced. Music a bit rubbish. Bar is stocked fairly well but food is awful and cheap. Awful pizza. Then the usual arcade games there aswell.

There is so much I can say about this place but not enough time. The sports bar needs updating. There are too many staff members. Most staff are just standing around. Sometimes you can wait AGES to get a drink I've had to shout for other people waiting. It's embarrassing. It used to be funny but now it's just expected and it shouldn't be! The games machines are okay but the coins ones do go wrong a lot. The food is good. I.think the staff are really nice. I go in here a lot for a drink during the week and they are always friendly and helpful there's just to many of them. There needs to be atleast 1 or 2 to stay at the bar during busy times or anytime.

The bowling, although tired and In need of a refurb, was fine for the young one, we weren't playing competitively so the occasional missing pin when they were racked up wasn't an issue. I could see how that would be annoying if you were playing seriously though. The lad at the counter was very friendly. There was a good selection of arcade games for when our son got bored. It was Very cheap with a groupon. We would come again but in order for us to consider coming with friends to drink and play in the evening without the children I would want a major refurb, most balls are damaged and the food looks pretty dreadful. So kids only for me, not a night time venue I would consider.
