last week i went up to stratford to meet up with a few uni friends. we ended up in westfields and a bit of persuading from me we settled on bowling as our activity for the evening. i have to admit i had no idea this place existed. it is the cutest diner crossed with a bowling alley hidden at the back. we settled on the burger and bowl deal and headed to get some of those beautiful bowling shoes before moving to our lane.
the staff were all super friendly and took our drinks order from the little booth by our lane. the list of milkshakes and cocktails is endless! charlie played it safe with an oreo milkshake whilst i decided on 'oh sweet jeez' the perfect combination of peanut butter, chocolate, caramel and banana. just amazing. we ordered our burgers and the games began!
naturally we had to do boys versus girls, which did somewhat back fire... i had failed to mention that i really cannot bowl. don't get me wrong when i do hit the pins i seem to somehow get a very good score! but sadly i rarely hit the pins... so surprisingly the boys won. our disappointment was short lived as we were soon called over to have our burgers. the boys settled for traditional beef burgers but i went a little outside the box and decided on a grilled chicken burger with blue cheese. it was delicious!
this really was the perfect little hideaway for our evening together and it's definitely somewhere i would go back to! reasonable prices and a lovely atmosphere! a big thumbs up from me!
have you found any hidden gems lately?
