BOWLED OVER: Is your local bowling club serving top-notch grub?

Ahhh, the neighbourhood bowling club. It’s somewhat of a Newcastle institution.

Your local ‘bowlo’; a community hub – a place to gently exercise while you socialise and if you join as a member, a top spot to enjoy an affordable bite to eat and something to swill.

Here’s just a handful of friendly bowling clubs, local to Newcastle, that have glorious greens and delicious food options too.

Carro Bowlo
Cowper Street Diner

There’s a lot to love about Carro Bowlo. If their incredible selection of craft and boutique beer doesn’t get you, their support of the local community and live music will.  

And then of course there’s the friendly staff and scrumptious offerings from Cowper Street Diner. Pizza, burgers, pasta and even a seafood chowder at the moment – this is a bowling club bistro right up our alley.

1C Cowper St, Carrington

Alder Park Sports Club
Our Taste of Greece

Members of the Alder Park Sports Club might want to keep this one a secret but we are here to tell you that this bowlo is home to authentic, fresh homemade Greek cuisine – just like your Yia-Yia used to make. 

Open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday the food from the Our Taste of Greece bistro is delicious! Hang onto your hat ‘cause the halloumi fries are that good.

132 Bridges Rd, New Lambton

Lowlands Bowling Club
Little Castro

This club is apparently the oldest in greater Newcastle and being located on beautiful Centennial Park it is a city centre fave – it’s family-friendly with outdoor seating and backing onto a separate playground. 

Little Castro started as a popular hole-in-the-wall on Hunter Street but has now made this bowlo its home. Serving up seriously tasty mexi-bowls, burgers and Sunday roasts – you are in for a treat.  Plus, the team at the bowling club have special offers on social bowls at the moment too.

Dawson Street, Cooks Hill

Mayfield West Bowling Club
Westside Bistro

This is the kind of place that could get us acting like Ali G over this whole bowlo bistro business – is Westsidddde da best?

Sunday roasts, catering, pub classics (burgers, wings, pulled pork and schnitzels) plus Asian fusion offerings including dumplings and rice noodle salad bowls – all taste buds are tempted here at Westside Bistro. And of course, you can wash it all down with a discounted beer.
