Better than before but still only just average.

Visited for my son's 7th birthday with five of his friends. Our visit required very little effort from us as the staff were extremely helpful in doling out shoes and setting up the lane with all the children's names. The food was perfect for young children, plenty of choice too. The manager took a photo and this was mounted on... More

Decided on a bit of bowling while visiting Stroud and I'm pleased we did. Had to ask where it was as was up the top of the building. Once in staff were friendly, bowling and drinks were cheap. Was very quiet for a Saturday afternoon which was quite nice also.

Tired looking premises, carpets and equipment with only bowling facilities, a couple of pool tables and a bar. A few years ago the facilities were ample and encouraged visitors to stay. Once the game is over, the visit is too.

Had a great time with the family, staff friendly and helpful. Food menu had been greatly improved and overall is a much nicer place to visit than in the past. Highly recommended.
