Rented the private room as part of a work party this evening. The food was great (lots of spiders and small plates) and they have a great selection of cocktails and craft beers (Beavertown Gamma Ray, Kona Big Wave and loads more). Mel and Raff couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome and we'll definitely be back again.... More

The bar was well priced for London and the food (mini burgers; tacos and dips;chicken wings and ribs) were all excellent and servied by... More

We went here on our works Christmas party. There was a mix up with our booking but they dealt with it very well! As we had to wait an hour for our lane they gave us a complimentary round of drinks. The concept of a retro bowling alley is really fun and definitely worked for a Christmas party. We had... More

When I heard we were going to a restaurant with a bowling alley for our Christmas work do I did feel quite excited at the prospect. However, bowling aside, the customer service was lacking and our food took absolutely ages to arrive. The main course took 90 minutes to serve!! A few of us couldn't wait for the pre-booked pudding... More

Booked a party here for 25 people, this was paid for weeks in advance but only 20 people were allowed to bowl... around 45mins in they said the others could bowl for the remaining 10mins!! Food was also pre-ordered but they had very little of it - no alternatives available! Contacted them to make a complaint... they'll string you along... More

Visited this venue for the second time with a group of friends for a friends birthday. We actually had a good dinner(the after thought wasn't great) , great bowling and carried on in the bar. In the bar I noticed a mouse and told the rest of my group. The rest of them after focusing managed to see it also!... More

Visited here with a group of friends to celebrate a friends 60. The staff were excellent. Venue is small so you must book. It is a fun way to spend an hour. Once bowling is over, or before, there is an excellent bar. The bar staff are great at mixing cocktails and the drinks menu is quite extensive. Definitely recommend... More

The game is fun, although there isn't hardly enough space at the lanes. Still it's nice. The food was notoriously bad. Never have I seen such a sad chilli fries - with 'slow cooked beef chilli' and three cheese sauce. It was plain minced meat (and not much) with a few beans and maybe half a tablespoon of cheese sauce.... More

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
