This is a great play centre, it's well equipped and it's well staffed. It's not expensive and the food is well priced too. There is plenty of tables and I like that there is a hairdresser inside. There's lots for all ages groups of children.

I took my daughter and her little friend to the Playcafe this morning. They had such a lovely time. The staff were polite and helpful and the facilities were clean and well maintained. We’ll look forward to coming back soon.

We had our son's birthday party here today. The team could not have been more helpful ensuring everything ran like clockwork. We had a member of staff dedicated to the party and the kids had a great time. Could not recommend this place enough.
