Since 2010, Lismore Tenpin Bowl has had a strict No Outside Food or Drink Policy. Today (2018) Lismore Tenpin Bowl continues to battle this policy with a minority of its patrons. We are happy to report that most patrons who enjoy the entertainment facilities that our business provides respect this policy and our quest for a prosperous business.
Alcohol Licenced Venue:
With the approval of an alcohol licence in 2011, it was made even more prominent that this policy needed to be adhered to.
No Outside Alcohol is be consumed in the centre.
Should a patron bring in a Packed Lunch, a Take-Away Coffee Cup, a Drink purchased at another venue or any other food or drink items, you will be asked to either:
1) Please finish the consumption of your item outside and dispose of the rubbish into the bin provided.
2) Please take what you have back to the car.
3) Please consume your food outside on the veranda, grassed area or in the car park.
Lismore Tenpin Bowl prides itself in providing a clean, well maintained and well respected entertainment venue. We do not want to discourage your attendance at this centre by asking you to take your food or drinks outside and in doing so, offending you. This is not our intention. Your custom to our centre is very important to us.
