Excellent lunchtime visit!
May 2018 • Friends
We visited Runamokka after being recommended by a friend to go, as we were 4 mummies with babies under 1 in the area looking for somewhere for lunch. This was ideal.
Leanne is super friendly and we were treated with care the whole time we were there, where nothing was a bother and if the little ones chucked food on the floor it was fine! (Which they did plenty as all weaning). Lots of high chairs, good baby change and many and soft play toys to entertain them
Food was tasty, very reasonably priced and adapted to suit you if needed. Choices of hot and cold drinks and cakes, fruit, and children’s menu as well.
For me it was slightly on chilly side in the cafe but I am always cold!
We will def return 😊

Fantastic!
Apr 2018 • Family
I have been visiting Runamokka with my Grandson who is 21months old for the last couple of months since I moved to Whitley Bay. I have visited other similar places but find this to be the best. The owners Leanne and Jackie are very friendly and make everyone welcome. We sometimes just have a snack but often have our lunch.
The play area downstairs is not overly big which is great as I can see my Grandson all the time and can relax with a coffee and chat with others whilst he plays in a safe environment.
I would highly recommend it!

Amazing 3rd birthday party - highly recommended
Jan 2018 • Family
We held our daughter's 3rd birthday party today and it was amazing. Leanne was so helpful and friendly. Every aspect was perfect from the soft play at the start to the food and disco. Leanne said as parents we could relax because everything was taken care of and she was right! It was really nice to be able to enjoy it. The only thing we had to do is take the cake and party bags which was a pleasure. The disco was a big hit and pitched just right for 3 year olds. The lunch box was ideal. The price was good value. Our daughter said as we left, "that was brilliant." Highly recommended!

Perfect place for 3rd birthday party
Nov 2016 • Family
I had my daughter's 3rd birthday party here and I can't praise the staff enough, everything was perfect and she and all her friends loved it. The soft play area is quite small but fifteen 2-5 year olds fitted in no problem, the fact that it is so close to the dining area means that parents can have a coffee and a snack whilst keeping an eye on the children. The food for the party was perfect for the age group - sandwiches, fruit, veggie sticks, crisps and cupcakes. This was served in a separate room upstairs and then an even bigger room was opened up for a disco with party games. The staff were great with the kids and kept them all entertained and the party bags included Frozen theme gifts which I thought was a lovely extra touch. I would definitely recommend this place!

2nd Birthday party - perfect!
Apr 2017 • Family
Haven't been to Runamokka for a wee while but thought I'd book for my sons birthday, as it's small and cosy enough for a group of 2 year olds. The price per head was the cheapest around, yet the children had plenty to eat and we had exclusive hire for 2hrs-on a day they'd usually be closed. Leanne provided everything, accommodated last minute requests without hesitation which saved a tonne of stress too. Her warm welcome and hospitality was second to none, and we wish her the very best in her new venture running Runamokka :)

First birthday party!
Apr 2017 • Family
Had my daughters first birthday party here at the weekend and it was lovely.
Leanne planned everything so I didn't have to. Catered perfectly for a range of children , and everything was excellent, thoughtful and well presented .
Lovely place. Ideal for a private hire for a birthday party.
Lots of classes to attend too through the week.
I can my recommend highly enough!

Fun, friendly and clean
Apr 2016
Great for children and adults! Softplay for children aged 0-5years, not massive, but big enough to keep little ones entertained and still in view no matter where you sit. Hot drinks and snacks available, not too pricey either. Bonus: homemade cake!

Brilliant
Jan 2016 • Family
Visited here for the first time since it was taken over, it is like a different place.

I felt so relaxed enjoying my lovely coffee. The prices are great and the food looked nice (although i didn't try any). The girl behind the counter was so lovely and she referred to my daughter by her name (she must have overheard me calling to her) which i thought was lovely. I can not say how lovely this girl was and was the perfect amount of interaction. Other small soft plays could learn a lot from this kind of service. Will certainly be back.

A+++ venue for toddler party
Apr 2015 • Family
We had a brilliant party for our two year old. It is the perfect venue for a toddler's birthday. Excellent value for money since the catering is spot on, the place is immaculate and the staff are really friendly and obliging. Would highly recommend for a party venue.
