Dark wood, crimson booths and low lighting give this venue a New York speakeasy feel, and with only 4 lanes in the main bowling area, the emphasis is as much on the excellent food and drinks as the…

    Unfortunately the event was not great, the host was ringing a bell right up in people’s faces to indicate the date was over (4minutes) - super uncomfortable and super unnecessary. The whole thing was rushed. The location was awful so small and no atmosphere or vibe so they defo need to up the locations style wise especially considering the price because all you get is a pen and paper to write notes like I don’t know what the £22+ was for to be honest. At least offer a drink. The men pool was awful, unfortunately I think the women were so much better and were super let down by the options. I think there should be smaller age group sizes because huge gapes of 20 years for an event is BAD. There should be 20-30 or 30-40 etc not 20-40 as this date was. There should also be more people and again the people that came were not it. It was boring rushed and unprepared and not worth the money.

    Hi there, thank you for your review. We are sorry that you felt the event was not as you had hoped. We can confirm that the ticket price is justified with use of the space, having the host on hand to create a safe space and to have full use of our system the next day the enter your matches. We pride ourselves in welcoming individuals from all walks of life at Slowdating and being inclusive of all, we are sorry you felt none were up to your standards. Thank you for your feedback regarding the age ranges, this is something we are looking to change in the coming months so please keep your eyes peeled!

    Very disappointing- 8 women and 3 men! Would not recommend attending again. Host seemed unaware of how to compensate us, apart from offering another ticket to an event- what’s the point? A refund should have been issued.
