New shoes needed

True it is looking a bit dated and could do with a bit of money spending on it (new shoes please!) but the food is nice for what it is and fair value

Awful do not go, machinery doesn't work and staff are unapologetic. We had 6 stoppages with the machinery and the lanes are not flat

We were welcomed as soon as we entered by staff. The environment was clean and and it became busy with lanes being booked with a mixture of ages. Service was good and plenty of staff on hand. good value for money

kids enjoy 10 pin and couldn't find one with a great review overall locally, but this seemed the best bet. it wasn't as bad for us as others have experienced. No problems with the alleys, food OK, all in all it was a good morning for not a lot of money. it's not like some of the more modern places... More

Ended up getting a free game because we were waiting for long or were forgotten about (not sure which). Felt sorry for the staff it looked like one poor guy was running the whole place on his own, when the lanes kept going wrong ( this was very often) he was trying to fix them while doing the reception at...

The worst alley I've ever visited. The shoes were worn out, the lanes were in really poor condition, the pin setter kept breaking down, the lane would turn off, the balls were damaged and the whole place needs a thorough clean. Felt sorry for the staff who smiled through the complaints and did their best to cope.

Outdated dirty lanes. They kept breaking down every other bowl, we got moved to another lane and that broke down multiple times too. Not worth £30 that's for sure. Will not be returning

When my son asked me if he could have his 13th birthday party at Ocean bowl I wasn't keen of the prospect- having read some of the other reviews on this site.. However I am so glad I caved! We showed up a bit late only to be greeted with friendly staff and lanes ready and waiting. Twenty minutes in... More

Came here for a friends daughters birthday party which was booked from 2.30-5pm. It took ages for them to get our games up and running, the kids didn't end up eating until 4.30, all the food came out at different rates, it all tasted like greasy oil, had to ask them to bring out their drinks included with the meal...

Dear Jen G, Thank you for taking time out to leave us feedback. We will try to be concise on each point you have raised which was also relayed to the party organiser on the day, as means of explanation as well as monetary compensation as a gesture of good will. The party itself did not arrive in its entirety... More
