What a class place that produces a top end pizzas like they do is anyone's guess. It's a waste really. It honesty deserves better than this dump of a bowling alley. Hopefully the surroundings don't put you off.

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
