We visited Namco Funscape yesterday evening for a game of bowling as a family. All the lanes were being played when we arrived so we were told that our lane for two games would be free in half an hour. After paying nearly £30 for two games for four people we went and sat in the bar for a drink.... More

Although there was no staff at the front desk, of where we would assume was reception, instead of leaving my partner suggested we went to the bar and see if there was any staff members. A lovely young lady I believe named Anna served us our drinks, was very apologetic for the lack of service at our arrival and furthered... More

Went for a pre Christmas trip here and won't be returning. The staff were extremely unhelpful and rude and looked at us like a piece of dirt. This place is quite dirty, the bowling lanes don't work properly and there were quite a lot of drunks in the bar area, certainly the language being used was not suitable for young... More

The place is filthy and run down the shoes are awful and the bowling lanes are broken with the kid's rails down the side's all bent up also the bowling balls have seen better days. The arcade part is worse with half the machines broken and in poor order add to that the amount of tokens needed to buy something... More

We visited here after using bowling as a reward for my 3 yr old son behaving all week - got here paid & were placed on a non functioning bowling alley complained 3 times (having to queue each time then being told lane 13 bumpers don't work - so why put us on it!) then asked for a refund as...

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
