The venue really takes on the ‘all-American’ feel, with fantastic Americana-style decor throughout the venue. And the food certainly doesn’t stray from the theme either – with USA inspired diner food. On this visit, I opted for the pulled chicken sandwich, which was absolutely delicious. The chicken itself was tender and juicy, contrasting with the crunchy and flavoursome slaw. And of course, I had to opt for my favourite sweet potato fries, which were cooked to perfection and some of the best I’ve ever tasted. If you fancy a drink, they also have a fantastic range of cocktails on offer
Before it was our turn to go bowling, we had a while to wait, so took over one of the (American style) pool tables for a few games, which is a really nice touch for those like us who wolf down their dinner and have a while to hang around before their game(s). The bowling itself is fantastic fun – the alleys are relatively dark, which combined with bright accent lighting creates a fantastic atmosphere. There are also only six lanes, much less than you’d find in some of the mainstream bowling chains, creating a much more intimate and boutique feel. We only had one game, although I would have happily stayed for more – the super fun animations that pop up on the screen are a definite entertaining highlight.
On the way out, we caught sight of a slightly old-fashioned looking photobooth and couldn’t resist jumping in for some stupid pictures as a memento of the night! I was completely bowled over (sorry. again) by All Star Lanes – and fun is guaranteed there whether you’re on a date, with a group of friends or looking for something the whole family can enjoy. It’s somewhere I’ll definitely visit again, and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting London!
P.S I won. Obviously.
