I liked taking the children anyway but this place has finally seen some much needed updating. It still has a way to go but it’s a start. For all those which don’t like wearing other people’s shoes, wear flats and you can continue to wear...More

Had a great afternoon with friends at tenpin. Haven’t been for a while and things have changed. Now have to pay at the bar and you don’t need bowling shoes. Found it reasonably priced but was upset that they no longer sell full fat Pepsi...More

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
