Tucked inside the listed Great Northern Warehouse building, this vintage-inspired bowling alley, restaurant and bar offers a new take on a time-old formula. It’s the first of the small chain’s outlets outside London and, marvelously, you can order snacks to share from your lane. Our favourites include sweet potato fries and salt and pepper squid served in a NYC-style take out basket. Mac’n’cheese croquettes offer a tasty take on the Spanish classic, while meatier options include short rack of ribs (ideal with Navajo bread and baba ganoush aubergine dip), potted shrimps on toast and chicken wings with BBQ sauce. There’s a full diner and US-style brunch menus featuring eggs, pancakes and steak cooked to order on the Josper grill. Cocktails, cool beers and milkshakes provide tasty support.
