Great for the kids. Weather was awful so good to have a place local for them to let off steam. We spent about 2-3 hours there and the kids had a ball.

We went here on a wet rainy Sunday with 2 under 4 and it was good. Everything was clean and the staff were friendly and passed the time of day with the children which many play centre staff don't do. We bought teas and a kids sandwich box which the 4 year old liked and it wasn't any more expensive... More

What a wonderful spot! This play area is fabulous for both parents and children. A bargain compared to our local indoor play areas. AMAZING food, beautiful scenery for the adults to enjoy and didn't see my 2 and 4 year old as they were off having a whale of a time. The cafe was cheap and incredibly tasty with a... More

This place is really great for rainy days, lovely views from the seating area that you wouldn't find in many places! It cost us just under £5 for two hours which is good value for money and a great way for them to burn some energy off. It's not a huge place but it's more than adequate for the kids.... More

The food was nicely presented and the homemade cakes were excellent. Will definitely be returning on our next... More
