We took our grandson here and as he was on his own, we had to watch him closely. We saw the older children (aged about 8-10) being deliberately aggressive with the younger children, there were not enough staff about to prevent it.

Large soft play with plenty of different zones. Decent value. Coffee was machine-made rather than barista, but decent enough. Don't trust you sat nav (ours said it was in a layby on the A40!)

The Play Barn is a fantastic day out! Tires the kids out rapidly with the huge play area and massive slide!! Younger children's area too, I think a little more should be added to this though. I like the fact that food is only served...More

Kept the kids busy for a good couple of hours so can't complain at all. Great environment, clean and tidy and plenty to keep them occupied. Would return again if in the area.
