Staff are rude and clueless...The phrase pay peanuts get monkeys springs to mind. Food is awful badly cooked you could smell the fact fact he beans had been well and truly burnt.. and little choice. Whilst the children have a good time you as a adult are charged to sit there, wait 25 minutes in a line just for coffee,... More

A large soft play area for children with extras such as Car Ride ons and the Teacups which is great. We were visiting for a party and the food for the children was great, really good selection. The staff were friendly and helpful and a large cup of tea (which I ordered) was £1.55 so not unreasonably priced either. The... More

They seem to have gotten rid of the noisy ball guns that used to drive me bananas... you can now actually have a conversation with a friend while the kids play!!! Teacups and climbing wall add excitement. Kids meal is expensive for what it is. Toilets are clean and staff is friendly. They sometimes do a fab deal of just... More

I have visited a few indoor play centres in the area with my two year old. I had heard good things about gambado, I knew I would be expected to pay a little more than the average £3-£5 I normally pay, but £8.20 plus my £3.60 parking! The centre is clean, but seemed very quiet considering I was paying for... More

Costs 20 pound for a family of four PLUS parking no free drink any more, food horrible by being overcooked and dry. Wobbly tables enough to spill your drinks. Overpriced coffee

Total heaven for kids but extremely noisy for adults and gets very crowded. Long queues for food and tables are very cramped together.
