Squaremeal Review of All Star Lanes Bayswater ?

The most fun you can have in a pair of borrowed shoes, All Star Lanes offers an ace package of bowling, burgers, booze and bacon popcorn. Its stylishly got-up branches aim to please both occasional bowlers and regular Big Lebowskis. Unsurprisingly, menus look to America for inspiration, with ideas drawn from both the classic diner and its modern-day equivalent: consider buttermilk-fried chicken and jerk gravy, BBQ glazed baby back ribs or a nacho cheeseburger with taco shards. For the luxe experience, make it whole lobster and fries or truffled mac ‘n’ cheese. Drinking has been known to improve one’s game, so choose your poison from the likes of Brooklyn lager, hardshakes, Margaritas and picklebacks. Some lanes go to ‘walk-ins’, others can be reserved. It’s worth booking ahead and keeping an eye out for special offers and off-peak prices.

Very good and fun

A really interesting set up. Nestled – without connection – underneath Le Café Anglais (is it 3 stories down?) the Bayswater (and original) branch of the bowling chain is a great place to go with friends and well known clients alike. The food, if you are that way inclined is amongst the best outright north american “diner” food in London. Think Henry J Beans come of age, or the late great Windy City… The bowling itself, once you have gotten used to the way to book the lanes is great fun and helps...

Let's face it, you don't come to this place to eat (whether lunch or dinner) but because you want a drink and some food either before or after bowling. That's not to say the food is bad – its actually good honest comfort food with burgers, ribs, steaks etc all done to a god standard. Service can be on the slow side. Besides a nice way for an evening out with friends this is also a very good family place and fun for kids. Fairly good value for money as well

Good venue for a night out with a difference. I actually hired the 2 lane room for my 30th a few years ago & it was very good (food, drinks, service). Went back this saturday night with my husband for a quick bite & bowl & was quite impressed with the food in the diner, as it could have been poor in a gimmicky place like this. Quesadillas to start were ok and a salad as a main, which was really nice. Husband had deep fried squid & ribs, which he really enjoyed. Its a good place for a hen night/leaving-do.

I was very impressed by All Star Lanes on my first visit, and have since been back a few times and not been disappointed. The space itself is nicely laid out, with a bar just to the left of reception as you come in (decked out like some kind of 70s lumberjack joint), then the diner space between it and the lanes at the back. The menu ticks all of the typical diner-style boxes, and the food is surpisingly good – both the healthy (caesar salad) and not so healthy (burgers, fries) options. They also...

    The Hedonist :: The Hedonist All Star Lanes

    For aficionados of Americana the opening of the first All Star Lanes in London in 2006 was a seminal moment. It meant an end to the dodgy burgers, watered-down lager and chart pop that characterised the other British bowling alleys. In their place came a sense of retro ’50s cool, great cocktails (including the legendary Ramos Gin Fizz-sadly no longer on the menu probably because it has to be shaken for 10 minutes…), food that you wanted to eat and proper Rock’n’roll on the turntable.
