I attended a Christmas Party at Junkyard Golf Club tonight and I am still reeling from the appalling service received and the altogether unpleasant experience. Albeit it was an exceptionally busy night, being the penultimate Thursday before Christmas, however immediately upon arrival myself and my two colleagues were required to have our bags searched - absolutely fine, other than that it was preceded by an "Oi - you need your bags searching." The space itself is cramped and was incredibly busy, again, to be expected. This meant though that you could't move, especially not if you had a bag. Totally impossible to get to the bar. There is a cloakroom advertising storage; coats for a pound and bags for two. I queued up at 6.15pm, and was told that there were no spaces left for bags... I was told that 'what do you think, this isn't a Narnia for bags Miss.' I eventually managed to store my bags after I saw two golfers leave with theirs about an hour later (I was still told that there was no space), whereupon they were placed under the desk and promptly lost. My colleagues also struggled with the bag fiasco, and as a result thirty of us were left to play golf balancing bags on backs, after a twenty minute queue for clubs. Golf was fine but cramped, though I was incredibly put off by obnoxious and somewhat sexist signs (one course had bikini bottoms littering the "green" and a cardboard cut out of two oversized women - one with a cock and balls drawn on her chest (!!!!!)). Such a shame and overall totally embarrassing and enraging. I would give this 0 stars if the posting didn't require at least one, and I highly recommend that you do not go there, especially given that there are a range of incredibly professional and well managed mini golf clubs/popups nearby! 


Says on the website under 18s admitted until 7pm Monday to Wednesday - but you have to go to the FAQs to find out that under 18s must be accompanied by a paying adult.  Only found out when our emailed tickets came through, but by then we paid our money.  No phone number and FAQs say cancellations must be made 48 hours in advance.  So we are stuffed.  Sh*t customer service from these thieves, stealing money from hard up teens.

A little bit over-hyped but still good fun.  I think from the amount of posts I'd seen on social media and targeted ads I was expecting a bit more especially since you pay £10 for the round which was over in less than an hour.  The theming felt a bit tired but I still enjoyed the puns. Highlight for me was the cocktail selection as there were plenty of quirky options to choose from.  Staff were also very friendly and helpful.


Awesome...best crazy golf course I have ever been too. Good cocktail menu. Was fully booked in advance but walked in and they were able to fit us in after a short wait.

So I was looking for a fun activity for my friends 30th birthday. Something that we could do that wasn’t too expensive, which is hard to find in London. When I came across Junkyard golf. I’d seen it in passing somewhere before and came across it while searching for things to do. And surprisingly, it was fun, cheap and a great laugh. The course we booked, was stated to be a guns and roses theme, but was more of a general music one, seems like someone needs to update the website. It was brilliant none the less. It took us about an hour to get round and we were at the end of the other groups in our time slot so we corals our time. However the only thing that was disappointing was the price of drinks. Definitely go early if you can as it obviously gets busy after 6.

This was such a great night! I was in charge of organising our team christmas outing, and so settled on Junkyard Golf and The London Shuffle Club. We went for a 5pm Thursday session for 7 people on the BRUCE course and even towards the end of November this time slot was very busy. This was my second time at junkyard golf, but I found this time to have thrown way too many people in at similar time slots. We had to queue for every single hole, as there were large groups ahead of us the entire way. It would have been nicer if it had been a bit smoother in transitioning around.

I am not particularly skilled at these types of activities but found that I was able to keep up with the others, and didn't even come last! This was a really enjoyable night out, and would also be perfect as a date night.

This is the most fun you can with a golf club surely!!! This underground crazy golf course is a hip, cool and east London as you can get....and best of all it is golf with booze as they have plenty of bars! Yaaasss. And you can take your booze with you 🙌🏻 It’s only 9 holes but each one is pretty special. There’s one with a hall of mirrors and my favourite had a merry go round of skulls. It’s fun, playful and well worth an hour or two. Remember loser buys the drinks!

I had the pleasure of being taken here for a surprise (because I really, really, really like crazy golf) and this place is pretty cool.  Just off Brick Lane it’s like walking into a neon jungle of disco balls, hipster lighting and the wailing sounds of people narrowly missing a hole in one. 


There are 4 courses to choose from but we went with the rainforest themed course because we like a good animal pun.  You get given a wristband with a time slot so you can turn up early, get a drink and then pop over when your time begins.  The course takes about 45 mins to complete taking into account the waiting time for the competitive people in front and sympathy high fives for all your bad shots.  This place has a great vibe with plenty of atmosphere to get you in the mood for a casual spot of putting, perfect for a date day/ night!

Really fun day out - I have tried 3 courses so far and have loved them all. I'm big on puns, which there are plenty on the course! I would recommend booking in advance as everytime I have been it has been pretty buys, but the people move along at a quick enough pace that you do not feel like you are waiting around! The courses are really well designed and fit in well with each theme - music is on point and they have lots of interesting cocktails and drinks to choose from, I would recommend checking it out!

I absolutely love mini-golf, how we call it in France, and have much experience in it. I was really excited to go to the Junkyard because I had been told so much about it.

As it turns out, it's really quite overpriced: £10-£12 per person for a 30 minute experience (only 9 holes per course!) and they still make you pay for the cloakroom! Outrageous really.

It was quite busy even if I went on a weekday. I believe you need to book quite a lot in advance if you want to go at the weekend.

There are several courses available, all with a different theme.

When arriving, you'll be offered a beautiful, plasticky, pink viser and will get to choose between shades of multicoloured balls a-plenty.

The playlist on the course I was on was awesome, between cheesy pop and old school rock.

The decor was really fun, with wrestling bears here and half pig, half cow creatures there. Quite psychedelic!

It was fun but just too expensive.

Junkyard Golf is brilliant fun! I went on a work social and really enjoyed myself. We went around the Bozo course which has some very challenging holes with some pretty dark, circus-like themes including a clown on a spinning wheel and Bozo's grave right at the end. Neon lights and loud music give this miniature golf course a party-like atmosphere. 


There is a bar at the beginning and half way round, meaning you never run dry, and a good selection of beers. 


You are given a score card at the beginning of the course as well, meaning there is a great competitive element - you can then pop to one of the surrounding bars at the end and announce your tournament winner! 


Great fun - I'll definitely be going back.

A couple of friends were coming to town, so I wanted to take them places that are unique and won't see everywhere. So Junkyard Golf was on plan.
You have to book in advance, specially for a big group (we were 4, which is not too bad). 
Overall we all had a very good time, we did the Bruce course which is all the movies. It was very fun, though felt very short - only 9 holes (all courses are same length).
What bummed us slightly is that there was a big group of people before us, about 8 people, and it took them ages to go through the course so we ended up waiting before every hole, specially with a group finishing fast after us too, it felt like we're stuck in the middle. So it's a bit of a shame because it felt a bit rushed and like there are too many people on that course.
We'd love to come again and try the other courses.

It may seem like London is overrun with crazy golf spots, with many new ones cropping up in time for summer. But if you are wanting to get your put on, there is no better place than Junkyard Golf in Shoreditch.


After a series of pop-ups, Junkyard Golf has now reopened on Brick Lane with four amazing, fun-filled courses for you to try. The courses are themed and offer a range of holes from loop the loops, to half pipes and winding tubes. The course I did was BRUCE, which was film themed. Expect holes from Shawshank Redemption, Forrest Gump and Jaws- if you love films, this is definitely the course for you. 


The atmosphere in the place is buzzing- with neon lights, music blaring and cool bars with tasty cocktails situated throughout the course, keeping you well fuelled mid game. Try their frozen margaritas- they are delicious! 


Ideal for a birthday celebration with a big group of friends, or a date night location to break the ice, this is such a good night out.


Top Tip: try to book more than one course for your time there. They go by pretty quickly and I promise you, you'll be itching to play again once you are done.

Continuously mixing up their game Junkyard Golf is always full of surprises. Having been to their first two golf courses (the film one was my fave) their recent refurb is an amazing surprise. With a trendy pineapple branded bar on one side of the entrance what would be a cheesy date night activity is now one of the best places to get drunk with your friends. Just be careful of the occasional flying golf ball! 


With this and the new extension of the vintage market, the Truman Brewery's basement has really had a facelift in recent months!

Who doesn't love a bit of crazy golf? Junkyard golf club offers this old favourite with a bit of a twist, the whole course is made of actual junk! There are four courses to choose from, as it was rather booked up, we had to go with what was free, and went on Pablo, but were not disappointed! Weave your way through volcanos, bathtubs and a speed boat to complete the nine holes. The great thing is you can really pace yourself and make the most of the course - grab a cocktail at the bar at the start and pause at the treehouse halfway through the course for a cheeky shot or a tinnie. Staff are really friendly and helpful too. Brilliant fun, can't wait to visit again and check out another one of the courses.

Recently re-opened, Junkyard Gold Club is a great option for a chill night out with friends or even as a date night option! It's located in the heart of Brick Lane among various bars and restaurants, which makes it convenient to head to after a meal in Shoreditch. 


They've got four different courses, each with its own theme and consisting of nine holes. When I went last month, I had the chance to try the GARY course, which was a "scrapyard challenge". It was garage-themed and had a really cool neon-themed hole! It's quick and easy to get through nine holes, so you can easily do multiple courses in one visit, even all four if you wanted. They've got a bar at the entrance as well as one halfway through the course, to keep you going!


The staff were super friendly at the entrance, throughout the course, as well as at the bars, which made the overall experience really great. I had a great time and will definitely be coming back to try out the other courses! Once you've finished playing, you can head towards their bar at the entrance, which has a large seating area and really chill atmosphere.
