I have visted a few time in the last year and I find it ok, the kids seem to enjoy it but I do think the toilets need cleaning or improving as they do smell, also the door has a faulty catch so when people go through to leave it is left ajar which is a safety issue

Not keen at all on Captain Jacks. I live in Retford and have 3 children so often invited to parties there. It's over-priced for standard of facilities it offers. Not safe/secure for several reasons. 1: older children often stray into areas designed for small children and nothing is done about it. 2: soft play area for babies/toddlers is not enclosed... More

I had previously written a lengthy review but this has been removed. Not sure why because it outlined my opinion. We attended a party which was very poorly organised. The staff were letting anyone in the party games room even though the host was telling them they wasn't invited. Some parents do not take charge of their children which I... More

I visited Captain jacks today and I really do not agree with the other reviews on here. I visit quite alot and I always have good experiences, yes the place does need a lick of paint as its all one colour, but they have just had a lovely company in which has already brightened the place up. The young lady... More

I often visit Captain Jacks as it's local to me. I am a parent and a childminder so visits are pretty regular. I find that all ages of children really enjoy the different play areas and sensory room and staff have always been very helpful when I've needed them. The children especially love it when the slide has just been... More

We booked a joint party for two 4 year old children with 20 kids and as many parents in attendance. The kids all had a great time with a great party dance parade, good food and attentive staff that made sure everything ran smoothly. The staff assisted with the two cakes and various additions to party bags, we even changed... More

We have attended Captain Jack's several times over a 3 year period or so. I have always found the staff pleasant and helpful and the food nice (if not a little unsuitable for a newly weaned baby...) Although my little one enjoys running around, I feel there is much that could be done to improve the facility. The baby changing... More

Difficult to know how to keep the kids entertained in the holidays, but on a recommendation from a friend i went along to see what it was like. I can only say what a great place Captain Jacks is. The welcome was very friendly and we were booked in without any difficulties (even though it was very busy!) Both my... More
