I'd always advise booking in advance as it gets very busy. Especially on the weekends. They do have a pretty decent bar to wait in, that serves hot snacks. Also the arcade aswell but that can be just as busy. Looks a lot better now...More

Had hoped to eat in their diner but there was no one to serve us so we went next door and came back to bowl in their alley. Good mood, good setting, improved games in the foyer, definitely enough to keep the whole family entertained.
