We're served quite promptly, we're surprised it wasn't too busy, considering the seaside town was busy. However it obviously has a problem with upkeep, the bowls were filthy, the pins kept dropping, although the chap was quick to put them right, although it happened about...More

We've been a few times over the years and it's great to have somewhere local to go. However it could do with some money being spent on it to improve it. The bowling balls are old and many have chips in them which are quite...More

We spent all afternoon here . Booked online in advance for three games. Even though the decor is tired it doesn't affect the bowling or the fun you have. Staff were friendly and happy to help. Did not eat here but saw people eating and...More

Lovely bit of bowling here, sells burgers and chips and has a bar. Lots of bowling lanes but do book, it gets quite crowded on a rainy day

Never a dull moment at this bowling alley where we bowl every week in a organised league. Having been bowling for a number of years it is a shame to see how little has been invested in this establishment and how often the equipment breaks...More

Went with friends and hired two lanes. Pins were lying in the gutter area and the machine broke every two or three goes. Grumpy old lady then came over and told us to hurry up as a bowling team were waiting. A few minutes later...More

Went bowling last night with friends for something different to do with the kids. Was very disappointed. The place is sad and tired looking. Everything looks worn out and dirty. Toilets grubby and staff unenthusiastic. The bowling machine stopped working once and had to call...More
