Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Karaoke booth here was fantastic. Spacious, had lots of hits and two mics for duets. Very accommodating. Had to wait a while for our drinks but lots of fun.

    We took my 6 year old son and 9 of his friends bowling here on Sunday and had lunch. Each of the kids ordered separately and Leila our waitress could not have been more helpful. She was quick getting the main courses out, clearing away and getting ice cream for pudding. Couldn’t have asked for more from Leila, she was spot on! Thank you! The adults burgers were a good 8.5/10, potentially a 9/10! Would recommend!

    Very fun activity! Quite busy and loud but that is expected for a bowling alley. I feel that it is unnecessary for this establishment to make you pay £10 for the restaurant without giving you a choice in the matter though. Especially as the majority of your customers are probably teenagers!

    You do need to book in advance, which can be a pain organising, and a little hidden away but i do love to bowl and this is a great location and fun atmosphere, best when your in a group though 4-6. drinks available and friendly place

    The Manager is a star.
    Eighteen of us went for a work event. We had a little issue and the manager dealt with it. Sometimes it isn’t about things being wrong, it’s about how they are put right, and in this occasion, the manager was first class. Due to his efforts, we will definitely be back.
    We enjoyed the bowling, and lovely food afterwards.

    This place was fun. The activities were good. We were a large group so a lot of the entertainment came from our own group being competitive and having a laugh with each other. I say this because the staff here were joyless! This place is supposed to be fun. Very few members of staff at the bar, on the games or our host seemed to be having any fun or care whether we were enjoying ourselves at all. This sort of venue can be made on enthusiastic staff. We were a big group but we weren't obnoxious, many of us are in middle age so need a bit of guidance with technology. Our host was appalling, maybe they were having a bad day and there was good reason but the fact so many staff behaved like they wanted to be anywhere else suggests to me there is a systemic problem with staff attitude here. Case in point, a small number of us arrived at the bar to order some drinks and there were a few other people also dotted along the bar. The bar staff instead of moving along to the customers beckoned us over in a quite rude way, not thanking us for going to them but acting like they had done us a favour by rudely gesturing at us. In summary we had fun here in spite of the staff. Perhaps the staff are sad they are not the ones having fun but surely they need to get over that or they will continue to affect the experiences of guests who pay a good amount of money to go here. When I compare to similar style venues offering 'fun' this is by far the worst treatment I've received from staff. Other such venues that stay at the top of people's wish list to go to pride themselves on their customer service and giving customers a good experience. I saw no evidence of that here. Shame. Won't go back.

    It is clean, not too noisy and great fun! Even better, there are table tennis tables next to the bowling for when you are finished - even more fun!

    Food was great and both my friend and I were impressed with the attentiveness of the waiting staff. Said staff ran out to return one of my friend's belongings!
    Thank you.
    Especially recommended the tater tots!

    We visited this bowling for the first time with the kids. I've been to many bowling alleys in different countries in my life, but this was the worst condition I've ever seen. The ball couldn't roll straight on the lane. However, the kids really enjoyed it, and that's what matters.

    The biggest disappointment for me was that my daughter wanted a little soft toy souvenir. There was a machine you could control with buttons to lift a small plush animal, but every time we grabbed one, the arm halfway lifted it and dropped it. This happened several times. My daughter left very, very disappointed, and even two days later, she kept mentioning what a bad memory it was. It would be better if they charged more but ensured success. Overall, it was a bad experience, as we left in tears

    First they didn't accept the 50% voucher I brought even though there was nothing wrong with it except my account didn't work because the password was messed up and they apparently couldn't fix it. So we had to pay £20 after walking for about two hours, which was such a scam because they lured us in with their deal 😡. After the problem with the voucher, the person I was playing against beat me at the game of bowling which broke my heart 😢, but to be fair the bowling experience was very nice apart from the fact I lost, so that gave it a star ⭐. Then the man (I personally feel scammed me by not accepting the 50% off 😔) was nice about filling up our bottles 💦 and even put ice in one of them which made me happy 😊, so that was obviously another star there ⭐. However overall, the experience was overshadowed by the fact the 50% off we were promised wasn't accepted and now Hollywood bowl has my email addresses but I have no 50% off. So if you ever go there remember that they scam you with vouchers and they probably won't work. 😡😔💦⭐⭐

    Bowling good. Food the worst I’ve ever had. Avoid food at all costs. Cold and disgusting. Sorry! Would be easy to provide nice options.

    Went early in the morning thinking it’d be quiet. First game was good but the second wasn’t pleasant at all! I understand it’s kids parties and they are hyper and having fun but to put 3 adults next to 20 kids for a party isn’t what we was expecting! They should consider it wouldn’t be enjoyable. And Considering the pricing aswell the staff didn’t do nothing about it nor cared. They shouldn’t bunch 20 kids next to 3 adults trying to enjoy 2 games of bowling. Unfortunately this has put me off! I enjoyed this the time before as bowling is fun but the fact the staff didn’t care just shows they just want your money not for you to enjoy your experience. I advise no one to go on a Sunday morning!

    I ended up here after finding that the trains were delayed by approximately 1.5hrs. Instead of lingering in the pouring rain, my friends and i decided to go bowling. They offered a very good bowl and dine deal for £15 excluding drinks. It happened to be happy hour on our visit so i had two pinã coladas that were so strong the nearly killed me. Other than that, it was a fun way to pass the time.
