We arrived and let my 2 year old wear himself out in the play gym, was very reasonably priced and my son had a whale of a time running of steam. The staff are very friendly and we loved the tour (although we have done it before), rolling rock and watching sweets being made, then sampling them with biscuits on... More

We went on a rainy day from Filey. 2 adults & 2 children (aged 5 & 3). We went in the play gym first which was very good, food & drinks very reasonable (1.75 for coffee, 3.00 for a panini). We were in there 2 hours & the children were happily entertained. It was fairly busy but not classed as... More

We headed to the John Bull rock factory tour on a rainy day in half term. The website was a bit vague about opening times, so I gave them a call and got a friendly response "probably all day". We has lunch in the cafe, everything is cooked fresh and the food was lovely and very reasonable. The cafe also... More

Did the tour this Bank holiday Monday and cost only £9 for the 4 of us. The kids loved it - you can pay extra (£1 each) to roll your own stick of rock and make a chocolate lolly. The tour was interesting, you can help yourself to sweets, fudge and biscuits on the way round too. All in all... More

This is a tour of the factory, so the opening hours are limited (check the website before visiting) - managed to get there during the Easter break. It's £2.50 for adults, £2 for children but the under 4's go free - so good value entry fee. This gets you into the factory to see the production of rock, biscuits and... More

I had visited many years ago as a little girl and was keen to take my own son. We were greated by one of the rock makers who welcomed us and gave us a breif introduction to the rock room. It is an actual production line and that day they were making mint rock for Bridlington. We were impressed to... More
