£2.50 for 2 hours for our 1 year old was good value I think. Lots to do inside in my opinion. Got a pot of tea for 1 Large coffee and ham sandwich with crisps for £5 and the ham was thick not rubbish supermarket standard. I would go again. Also staff friendly.

My son really enjoyed being here and we stayed two hours, he wanted to stay longer though! Pretty basic but great if your at a loose end or if the weather is bad.

The player area was a really good one, not to small or big and lots of equipment for the kids to play on. Also good food from the cafe
