Great place in town

Only for under-7s but is a great place to take the kids, mine are happy for a good couple of hours here, it's clean and the staff are friendly. Good value for money.

I was disappointed, the play equipment is very small and could do with a good clean. The menu is limited, staff were not really interested in the customers and the whole place could do with a really good clean.

Reasonable prices. However not suitable for children 6 plus really as there is not sufficient play equipment to keep them stimulated. However perfect for toddlers and the role play area was a nice change and my child loved that part of it. Was a bit disappointed by unwelcoming staff, no menus so you could browse whilst you watched the children.... More

Visited twice this month and have been super impressed. Very clean and the staff are very friendly. My 14 month year old son has had so much fun there, and for the cost of £5 for a months entry is unbelievable valuable. The coffee and cake are also good. Will be returning regularly.

Excellent indoor play area for the very young and older children up to about 7 or 8., Enjoyed drink & healthy snacks while watching children playing on the climbing frame or in the ball pool. Reasonable entry prices & special rates for parties available.

I had heard about this place from a friend & thought my 17 month old daughter would love it whilst we were shopping in town. We walked in & there was only one other family in there. We approached the food desk where there was a man working & young girl. Nobody greeted us at all, my husband ordered a... More

I regularly take my 2 yr old and 5 yr old. They both love it and can get around by themselves. It's small enough that can watch them whilst having a super tasty hot chocolate and big enough for me to then get in and play with them. The food is great value and tasty and the cutlery is super...

We had a hot drinks and muffins, which were ok, but several tables were neither cleared nor cleaned. Staff seemed to stay behind the counter instead of clearing up.
