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... More

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.

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.

Went here on a wet Sunday with some friends and our children. Excellent place; clean, friendly, comfortable. So different from your usual 'pit of hell' soft play centre! Toilets were spotless even though it was the end of the day. Well done and I will certainly be back. The children loved it as we'll by the way...!

Shakees is great for young children the soft play area let's them crawl or toddle around without fear of being hurt, would be great if there was a smaller slide off the climbing frame / ball out for little ones.

I came up from Plymouth with my 4 year old daughter, to meet a friend who lives in Bristol, with her 2 children. I had seen the cafe on Trip Advisor and it had good reviews, so thought it would be a great place to meet, halfway between the two places. The children had a brilliant time, didn't want to... More

Another visit to shakees play cafe with two enthusiastic and energetic pre schoolers, welcomed by friendly staff who were genuinely happy. Food served promptly and hot, and tables cleaned regularly. Play area clean and tidy, with safe and practical toys and toilets checked regularly too. Will definitely be returning soon!

I visit this place a lot, I can say is a good place to take your toddlers to play, def no children over 6, I feel comfortable cause no big childrens running around and pushing the little one's. The only thing that I don't like is the young man behind the till, sometimes he is nice but sometimes he is... More

Shakees is quite good for little children. The play area is very suitable for under 5s which means I can relax while I'm there. There are lots of tables for mums/babies/buggies and you can order a variety of food and drinks. It is directly adjacent to a large car park in Taunton (which completely fills up by 10am, so get...
