There are also two cafés, and a fun retro games arcade.

Now a definitive one-stop-fun-shop! great grub, cool lanes, great staff. i love the new look & very glad Nottinghill has a new cool spot to hang out in.


I recently celebrated my birthday here at QUEENS, and I was a little concerned that with 30+ people wanting to bowl, eat, drink, and ice skate, it could be a disaster to organise and orchestrate. 

Thankfully the staff here at QUEENS were amazingly well prepared for our party. We were given 4 lanes next to each other, with plenty of time to sort out teams and to let everyone bowl at their own pace. While we were bowling, the table service was so quick and the staff were very friendly. Everything went well during the night, with all my friends having a great time enjoying all the activities, good food, and great music. All in all, it was a great birthday, and from start to finish, and I'm so glad that QUEENS were able to make it a stress-free and enjoyable night. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a genuinely fun night out in London!

Alright, must admit, I had no idea this place existed until I went there on a date. It has loads of things to do including an impressive range of retro arcade games (hello Mortal Combat). Turns out, I'm totally terrible at bowling, and especially awful when wearing espadrilles (improved marginally when I swapped to the regulation bowling flats) but it isn't the winning, it is the taking part that counts! I did get a strike tho (picture evidence) and the soundtrack was super awesome!

If you're up for an activity-filled night and you fancy bowling, ice skating or retro arcades, then Queens Skate is definitely a place you should check out. Queens Skate's interior design is lovely and it fills the atmosphere with nostalgic retro vibes. I had a really great time here, as I not only went for an ice skating session, but also spent some time playing at the small retro arcade. The ice skate rink is quite big and don't worry if you're not feeling very confident skating as there are always some tutors (the rink is used for figure skating and hockey lessons) who can help you out and teach you either new moves or how to balance on your skates and avoiding falling/tripping on ice. I really appreciated the music on the rink as well, as it perfectly combines old tunes and new chart hits. If you're a gamer or simply fancy a few games at the arcade, you may be delighted to find games like Pacman and Mortal Combat, but don't forget to bring some coins (each game is £1). The only disappointing bit was perhaps the restaurant, Meat Liquor, which only had two vegan options (including chips) and the meaty burgers were greasy and fat. But overall, in terms of fun, I can say that the place was really up to my expectations. I will definitely come back!

What an awesome place! Whether you're in for a bit of bowling, skating, fooding or drinking, you'll be served! The drinks were quite expensive but we benefitted from a great deal: £12 for a game of bowling + one drink + one burger. The music was very cool. The Meatliquor restaurant I expected to be a bit disappointing but it was VERY tasty! And don't get me started on the cheese fries. I'd really recommend it!

I personally am not keen on this bowling place as its quite shabby with wallpaper peeling off the walls and the pins being attached to strings so the pins don't fall down as well as normal pins. Plus the balls are not very shiny so don't flow smooth down the lanes.  However I love the MEATliquor restaurant they do amazing burgers and massive onion rings. Also the ice rink is massive and very white making it one of the best in London to go to.

So, I used a Time Out voucher for my first visit here which seemed to confuse the already rude staff. 

My partner bought two vouchers which were to include a game, a burger and a beer. Turns out if the game is ten pin bowling you can buy as many vouchers as you like but you still will only get one game!! 


After the confusion and trying to get the staff to explain to us the deal, we paid for another two games of bowling, which for £35 I thought this was very expensive, but it was an enjoyable half an hour. The place looks nice and has a slight seedy, cool underground vibe. There's plenty to do with many arcade games, skating and pool and darts tables. 


However, Meat Liquor was the real winner here. The food was up to the usual standards so once I was full of buffalo fries and a dirty hippie, the sting of earlier had been softened. I would go back- but just make sure you know what you are paying for, and try to avoid dealing with the staff. They clearly need to eat more Meat Liquor to get there happiness injection. 


Great place, staff and vibe. Expect to be harassed by the bouncers when you pop out for a smoke: I deeply regret the £100 odd that I spent there tonight: only to be treated so rudely by the door staff.

Bowling ice waking and burgers - the hipster version of the bowling alleys from childhood.

Meat liquor is a London Institution and is prime in place in the bowling and ice rink location.

The blwling is not great and the lanes could do with a varnish but it's a fun night out with good beer and food.

This bowling alley/meat liqour combo is a treat. Having visited the old bowling alley previously, I was very impressed with the refurbishment. It now has that funky meat liquor style. The 'ugly' shoes are now optional (I still like wearing them), but the food offering has massively improved. The restaurant was a little quiet the Sunday I visited but it was a glorious day outside, so that might have had something to do with it...

Can you ever go wrong when meatliquor is in the mix of things?? No you can't !!!

You bowl then you eat... And when I say eat I mean indulge !! Because those burgers they dish out are crazy!!! Dripping in blue cheese,buffalo sauce and happiness! Seriously.... Its a must experience

I when here with a group of friends and it was fun. we come mainly because of bowling, but they had so much more to offer. The had an arcades , ice skating so while we were waiting for us to play  bowling, We had a good time playing some table foosball .  The atmosphere and the staff are great.  The prices was good for drinks and food, it was average. A place to hang out with friends and  be a bit competitive with each other. 


What an amazing place in the heart of London. It has everything you need to have fun on the night out. It has bowling, ice skating, retro arcades, bar and food all under one roof. 

Staff is lovely and very friendly. While enjoying our bowling game, we got waitress service on the lanes which was great as we did not have to make our way to the bar. After the game we sat in the restaurant and had most delicious burgers. They do best halloumi burgers for sure.

Definitely coming back to do some ice skating.

There’s something about being in a bowling alley that transports me back to being 15 again, it probably has something to do with the arcade games and bad 00’s RnB that does it. Queen’s however is a grown up version with craft beer and food from a trendy kitchen (Meat Liquor hasn't arrived yet but the interim food is still pretty good). We didn’t skate but the bowls were really fun, and they offer table service so you never need to miss a turn. Bonus points for letting you wear your own shoes. If I’m honest there’s still a part of me that yearns for the philistine bowling at Elephant & Castle but I can appreciate this is bowling for the more discerning patron.

Come here on a night out with work for cocktails and bowling! The cocktails were amazing, mine was even served in a retro milk bottle. The bowling was great fun! We had four lanes as there was a large group of us. What's even better about this bowling is that they don't make you change your shoes, although the option is there if you wish to. Had a great time overall. We are already planning our next work night out there!

For kids or for adults who want to hark back to their kid days, replete with karaoke, arcade games, bowling and the rink. You won't lack for activities. It's not a glamorous place, but that's part of the nostalgic charm. 


Beautiful place where to spend nice evenings. I think they are modifying it because at the moment the only thing which is open is the ice rink... This winter there were the bowling and the casino as well... Can't wait to see how it will look like. 

Skating is perfect for every kind of nights, romantic, with friends or family... Prices are affordable, around 13£ each (adult fare). 


Fabulous rink.. go there regularly. and visited again last week.. Only 1 small question: Where is the ice boot??
