Visited with the family to celebrate birthday. Great place for room for kids to play and plenty of room for eating. Good prices with large servings and arrived at table within 15 mins of ordering for our table of 6. Would definitely eat here again.

It's a modern new building right next to the Big4 and that's where the good news ends. I have not seen a bistro staff member smile yet, the place has a playground but I get the feeling they don't like kids much here. My chicken...More

We have drawn attention to this before. It has not changed. Every time we have visited for a quiet drink, there is a table of just 3 regulars (not bowlers) who pollute the air with continual F words. Most unpleasant, Otherwise it would be lovely.

Ate here twice, good generous helpings at a good price. Nice food, better than most clubs. Modern decor, friendly staff.. We stayed at Bannister's across the road which was a little pricey for every meal so we alternated between the Bowling club and Bannister's.

The food here is great and the staff are friendly. I had the pizza which was delicious and everyone else enjoyed their food too! We had a few little kids with us and they enjoyed playing outside on the large play equipment.

Wow, what can I say... Very simple menu for both adults and kids made the choice easy, but the quality and quantity of the dishes was a total disappointment. I ordered the garlic prawns with rice. I thought the tiny little cup of rice was...More
