Friends came to visit me with a 3 year-old boy. To save the child becoming bored while myself and the other 2 adults chatted I thought a soft-play area would be the solution so the child could play while the adults chatted. However I was taken aback at the cost - £12 + £2.50 registration fee for 2 & a... More

It also helps us to build facilities that adults and children can enjoy together. I’d encourage you to join in on your next visit! If you book... More

We had our daughters 6th Birthday party here on the 10th of January. Absolutely brilliant. Cannot fault a single thing. Our party hosts Tom and Kelly were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. Party room was spotless and the food was excellent. Plenty of variety and they didn't scrimp on the amount of food either. All the kids had an... More

What makes this place is the friendliness of the staff. They are all high in spirit and are great with the kids. It's nice to see that some make effort in getting to know the kids' names and even when busy, still finding time to chat and play with the children.

Great location and free parking, quite big facility but during weekend too busy too noisy too dirty. They have great price deals on Groupon but regular prices are quite expensive plus you have to pay for an adult. Kids portions which cost £4...3 chickens and 12-15 chips.

Thank you for your review. I’m glad to hear that you have been able to take advantage of our Groupon deals. Weekends are our busiest times at Gambado so some noise is inevitable.

Had my son's 5th birthday party here and cannot fault it in any way. The host took care of everything and organised everyone very well. The food was hot and went down very well with the kids. It was a very stress free party and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
