Went on a family outing in January to your bowling alley, This lovely young lady served my partner and I at the bar she has a positive attitude and was full of conversation, we asked her about the local attractions of Margate and surprisingly she went above and beyond to answer them (very knowledgeable young lady). She mentioned her name... More

We have lived in thanet for 11 years now and this was our first ever visit. We used to go to AMF until it closed down and never thought of going here before. I don't now why it just always seemed to look run down from the outside so we never gave it a second glance. We decided we would... More

We went to Bugsy's today for our daughters 8th birthday party. The Staff were super helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The food was great and our daughter and her friends had a fabulous time. The party bags provided within the price were also wonderful. Thanks to everyone at Bugsy's for making our daughters birthday so special.

Booked a party for 10 x 9/10 year old's. The whole process was stress free the staff both on the bowling counter and kitchen counter were friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble, it was an absolute pleasure. I can praise them enough it was truly fantastic and the kids loved it. Thank you so much Bugsy's.

We had a company team building night out and had a lovely time. The staff were extremely helpfully and the whole evening ran very well. We opted for the party night which includes a meal, a drink and two games of bowling. The food is as you would expect it to be in a bowling alley but it was served... More

Been here a few times with our teenage daughter and her friends. You can get a drink and bar food all at reasonably prices. The staff are friendly and helpful. The place is a little tired but that doesn't detract for the fun. Worth a visit.

It saved the day as it was my nephew's birthday. One of our party was in a wheelchair... More
