Has to be booked online, or call centre (premium rate number!!! - do they want my custom or not) Friendly phone manner, but couldn't speak to actual bowling cente.... Actual bowling session (birthday party) was excellent, with very helpful staff. Would go again

Visited for an afternoon of bowling. The staff are very helpful to novices, and help set up the lane. There are bumpers which can be used down the sides, and metal launchers to help the youngsters send their bowls down the lane. That means it...More
