Q. Can I bring a cake and decorations?

A. You are more than welcome to bring a cake with you to the restaurant. Our team will be happy to participate in any singing of happy birthday and will even present the cake with a candle if you require. We can also add a candle to any desserts ordered. You are also welcome to bring any balloons, banners and other decorations however we ask that you do not bring confetti as this can cause health and safety issues.

Q. Do you take bookings for large parties?

A. V-ATE can fit parties of up to 18 guests, this includes high chairs . If you require a larger booking please email with your enquiry and we will work with you to try accommodate your party.

Q. Do I need to book my car themed table and bowling separately?

A. Both bookings can be made at the same time through our online widget but essentially it is two separate bookings. Booking a car themed table will not automatically guarantee a duckpin bowling lane for your party. Our booking system makes it easy to select a table time and bowling time together. This way you can choose to bowl before or after you eat

Q. What is duckpin bowling?

A. Well it’s a lot like 10-Pin bowling with each lane being able to accommodate up to 6 guests. The balls are slightly smaller and have no holes (perfect for little hands or those with long nails) the pins are slightly shorter too. It is essentially 10-pin bowling as you know and love it but with no need to change you shoes (hurrah) and a slightly smaller lane (approx 25ft)

Q. Do I need to eat in the restaurant to bowl?

A. Not at all. You are welcome to book a bowling lane without needing to dine in the restaurant

Q. Can I eat and bowl at the same time?

A. There is a specific bowling menu available to order from the lanes themselves. The menu consists of tasty bar snacks such as loaded nachos and garlic dough balls. If you are looking to dine in one of our car themed tables then you will need to book this either before or after your bowling time.

Q. Do you offer party packages?

A. Of course! Check out the party package page of the website for more information
