The opening and closing times of each centre are listed on their information page.
There is no set dress code, other than that we ask our guests to remove any hoods and caps so that we can see their smiling faces! Obviously, we ask that you behave appropriately and considerately at all times, which covers wearing appropriate clothing for a family centre.
There are no restrictions, although we suggest that given the weight of bowling balls, the minimum age for a child to bowl is four. As long as you’re fit and strong enough, there is no upper age limit, and we love to see all ages coming together to have great fun on the lanes. Of course, areas of our centres have age restrictions, so we can't allow under 18's in our bar after 9pm. Under 18's are also only allowed in our premises after 6pm with a responsible adult/parent or legal guardian. We will ask for proof of age.
Yes. As our bowling centres can get very busy at peak times, and we don’t like turning people away, we always advise people to book online in advance, which you can do here, or by calling us on the page for your local centre.
We accept Visa, Mastercard and Maestro.

We suggest that the minimum age for a child to bowl is 4, but it is solely dependent on the child and their ability. Our smallest ball is XS, which is 6lb in weight. We do have ramps that let kids push the ball at speed instead of bowling by hand, and bumpers that stop the balls going into the gutter.
Generally we advise 6 people to a lane with the maximum being 8 in some centres. You pay for each bowling game, which is not given any set time period. The more players on your lane, the longer the game will last. One game for six adults would typically last about an hour.
