I want to have my birthday party here. And then, I want to have my birthday party every day. Rowan's is essentially the shabbiest place on earth to be the happiest person on earth, but who can argue with a £10 bowling/shoes/karaoke deal? Throw in a game of mini air hockey for 50p, and everyone's a winner.

I have to say that I did not indulge in any food or drink during my stay at Rowan's,...more

I really like this place. Feels a bit old and worn but more in a way that adds to its character, rather than feeling run-down. 1 pound cover charge, which is a bit weird for a bowling alley, but definitely not a deal breaker.

The bowling is reasonably priced, I guess. I have no standard for comparison. This...more

Rowan's is a cheap n cheerful ten pin bowling alley in North London.

This is very old school. There's an arcade, a simple bar and the alleys are always packed with kids and families on the weekend.

As far as bowling goes, this place is pretty affordable. It's also quite fun and makes for a good Saturday afternoon out. This is really *no frills* and don't expect anything outlandishly...more
