Dog Bowl – Childhood memories

The Black Dog Ballroom is always a great night out, but if you fancy something a little tamer then its sister, Dog Bowl, is a great alternative! As a child one of my favourite things to do was go bowling, but Dog Bowl somehow makes it feel like an acceptable adult pastime too.

There are five full length ten pin bowling lanes inside and it’s always worth booking ahead as they’re usually packed out with Big Kids. While you wait for a lane to become available you can enjoy a sit-down meal as Dog Bowl serves up a Tex Mex fare including burgers, nachos, salads, fajitas and more. The combination of sweet potato fries with peanut butter and chilli sauce is to die for! If you want to go really old school you can also enjoy a milkshake as you bowl, but I’d always add a shot of something boozy for an adult twist. Unless you actually want to win of course…
