What we’ve been up to… All Star Lanes, Victoria House

When a friend invited me to celebrate his birthday with him at All Star Lanes in Holborn yesterday, I was quickly reminded that a) I haven’t been bowling for AGES and b) I’ve actually never been to ASL, which in the last 7 years has earned a rep for being one of the best hangout  spots in the capital. They’ve got special deals on Mondays, club nights on a Saturdays (and their cocktails are said to be legendary),   so if their upmarket, retro take on 10-pinning has been good enough for royalty (Google Prince Harry and All Star Lanes), it was gonna be good enough for our crew on a Sunday afternoon.

The Holborn branch isn’t an obvious find, but I liked that it was quite cosy with only four lanes and you can play off-peak for just £7 a person. The food was also a major plus – so after playing a quick game (where I remarkably came in 3rd place!), we sat down to a varied American menu, and ordered everything from a full rack of BBQ baby back ribs with coleslaw and fries (£18) and mac & cheese (£10.50) to a veggie burger (£11) and an 8 oz rib eye steak (£18).  The mains are obviously not cheap, but sandwiches like the fish finger with fries (£8) are generous enough and there’s the option of tucking in on small plates such as chicken wings, popcorn squid & aioli or mac and cheese croquettes which are all well under a tenner.  I also loved the fact that you can order floats – sprite, root beer or coke with ice cream – cream sodas, deluxe milkshakes and mixed juices – and for afters, there was cherry pie on the dessert menu (and I love cherry pie!)

Bowling tends to be put on the back burner in Spring but we all had a really great time – so I can’t recommend it enough!
