“Expensive!”
Review of Barnsley Bowl

Barnsley Bowl
Ranked #5 of 17 Fun & Games in Barnsley
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

We were going to go ice skating but didn't fancy the drive to Sheffield given the bad weather so we thought we'd pop for a couple of games of bowling.

Firstly, I think this is expensive for what it is. We paid the the same price for 3 of us to go skating for 3 hours as we did for 2 of us for 2 games of bowling.

The place was practically empty and everything is a bit grubby. The bowling was fun but it's not good value for money given what else is on offer nearby.

If we have an urge to bowl we'd definitely come back but it's nothing special.

Really spacious, very clean, nice friendly staff, good food. Excellent value for money. This is a fab place for all ages., We go during the day and during the week so we cannot vouch for how busy it is at weekends and on a evening but we are very impressed with this place - and we are enjoying the bowling too. Toilets exceptionally clean. Cafe and Bar exceptionally clean and all facilities provided are first class. Highly recommended

We took our grandchildren here for a couple of games of bowling. Booking was easy, the displays were fun and the staff were friendly. The venue was clean and even the shoes were relatively comfortable. We had intended to eat elsewhere but our grandson looked at the menu and wanted to eat there. Both of the kids ate most of their food, which doesn't often happen and we really enjoyed ours. I had the pie which was delicious and homemade. I'm sure we'll be back

Being a support worker I go here regularly and find it extremely good for people with a disability. There is a lift to get those in a wheelchair down to the lanes to bowl. They have great special offers on so it isn’t overpriced. The staff are very welcoming and customer service is great they are always eager to help. After a game of bowling there is a really good cafe bar which is very reasonably priced whether you are just having a drink or a meal and they have exceptional value for money
