This new kid on the block is actually an old favourite for Delhi bowlers. Yes Minister stands where Essex Farms once was, except instead of pleasing after-school groups of students, it now targets a slightly older crowd. While the décor has changed, and they now serve delicious food and strong cocktails, the bowling alley remains the same. Memories of our childhood come flashing back as we watch our friends despairingly miss that 7-10 split. At least this time they have a drink to drown their sorrows.

#LBBTip: They also have a mechanical bull.
