We want everyone to have the best bowling experience available when they visit our Cheltenham centre. That’s why we’ve answered many of our frequently asked questions below to help you plan the perfect trip.
How Many People Can I go bowling with?1
In all our centres there is no limit on the number of people who can bowl together in a group.
We have installed full height dividers between the lane seating areas. The maximum capacity we allow on each lane is 8 players.
Do I have to wear a face covering when I visit a Bowling Alley?1
Can I Get Food and Drink Whilst Bowling?1
Yes, of course, you can get food and drink whilst at Hollywood Bowl. Food and drinks can be ordered using the QR code on tables and menus, at selected centres, or from the bar and Diner.
We recommend that you pre-order food and drink when booking your game. If you do wish to order and pay in centre, contactless payments are preferred.
How Many People Can Bowl and Socially Distance?1
Following guidance, we are allowing maximum bookings of 6 people per lane.
This is a reduction of our usual 8 maximum.
We ask that whilst this may be frustrating, that you do not organise to meet with others during this period. To help with social distancing we have installed full height dividers between the lane seating areas - this will ensure that your group remains in a ‘social bubble’.
Do you have disabled access?1
Yes, our centre is on the first floor. There is a lift to access the centre, and a smaller lift to access the bowling floor. The main lift is operated by reception; please use the call buzzer located on the left hand side to alert them you are here.
Is there free parking available?1
No, there is no free parking outside of our centre. There are 2 NCP car parks nearby, The Brewery and Portland Street.
Do you have concession rates?1
Yes, we offer a concession rate of around 50% for disabled guests and their carers, as well as seniors.
This rate is available every weekday before 6pm, for 48 weeks out of 52, including the summer and Easter holidays.

How long does a game of bowling take?1
We allow 10 minutes per person, per game. Therefore, 1 game for 2 guests is allocated a 20 minute time slot.
2 games for 2 guests would be allocated a 40 minute time slot, etc.
