We hadn’t planned to have to bring our own bowling pins, bowling balls and alley, but it seems these items were some what lacking once we got there. Shall return when at least some shoes are provided at the car park.

When we arrived we couldn't find any staff at all - once we found them they were pleasant enough, but they could do with a few more people I think for the size of the complex. The whole place looks a bit grotty and run-down,...More

It's the usual mix of good fun(bowling) and very average food indeed good for young kids but not the sort of thing i would eat, as with all AMF venues it can be a little grubby and the teenage staff are at times a little...More
