The alley is usually available during pub opening hours, except Tuesday evenings, which are club evenings.
Unlike bowling alleys with multiple lanes, we can only accommodate one game at a time. We can therefore accommodate a maximum of twenty players.
We will quote you a price when you make an enquiry. The cost compares favourably with most other forms of entertainment in London.
Excellent food is available. See the menu on the Freemasons website.
Note: Arrangements for use of the alley are with the Hampstead Lawn Billiard and Skittle Club, who own the equipment, not with Mitchell and Butler, who run the pub.
Tom Browne’s Schooldays
We quite agree, but what could be better? Certainly, it's an excellent way to pass an evening. Whether you're organising an office bash or some other event or just want to try the game with a group of friends, you can book our skittle alley at a reasonable cost.
An experienced club player will be present to provide coaching and to help organise the evening.
All you have to do is master the art of aiming a 10lb discus-like piece of wood at some skittles 21 feet away and drink a lot of beer

Who plays skittles?
Everybody. Just look at our visitors gallery or see this customer's blog.
We have hosted skittles evenings for well-known companies such as:
How London Skittles is played.
Don't worry about the scoring. We suggest the more familiar Western Skittles scoring for large groups.
