What can I say, this place is fantastic! From the time you walk in the door, the staff are friendly and attentive. They regularly talk to my daughter as opposed to being child unfriendly as some of these places can be. I pay £2.95 for my two-year-old daughter to play and this includes a voucher that I can use on... More

Took my daughter over the half term to a birthday and witnessed staff handling cooked party food with bare hands then leaving it for over 5 minutes out in the open! The man who handled the food was even seen rubbing his nose whilst serving it in thia way! This is absolutely disgusting! No hats/hair nets for staff with long... More

Visited as a birthday party group, the fun factory is very good, clean and well looked after but some of the staff were incapable of smiling or interacting with the children which is a shame as I thought this would be a major requirement. Others though were very pleasant I would go again though as the facility is very good... More

Dated, grubby but the children don't care! I had a table to myself, free wifi and a decent cuppa so everyone was happy - the children's socks were black after Bly 20 mins so I'm glad I don't have a crawling child with me! On the upside it was cheap to get in with maximum stay time.

I took four children aged 5,6,7,and 8, one child had physical difficulties. We arrived fairly early on in the day, I think we were only the thrid party there. As I am a childinder I was entitled to a whopping £1 offper child, which bought the total price paid down to £18. The children were happy to run off and... More

Nice clean open play area, something to interest most ages and a nice place to kick back with a coffee

The Fun Factory should be a good resource in wet weather, but it wasn't very good when we visited (1/8/14). There were just not enough staff, the queue for the cafe was very long and the front desk wasn't always manned. The green 'in' gate didn't always close properly either, leaving kids in theory able to leave the building on... More

This is good for a couple of hours with children in wet or cold weather. I wish it had a better cafe and more comfortable seats for parents/guardians. It was very uncomfortable sitting while our granddaughter played. I would give it a better rating if it considered the adults more!

The place is always clean and tidy and kids of all ages love it here, have been many times, free parking always a bonus. Only recommendation i would make is the stairs could do with some sort of gating system for families with toddlers.
