Our Kids loved it on a rainy midweek day. There were a couple of other children, but not too many. The coffee Options were good. The staff took care of the Play area (cleaning/tidying up). We would come back!

The play area is well priced and has the normal activities you would expect with some outdoor play. The food is very basic got the pasta and tomato with cheese for my daughter it was exactly that pasta,tinned tomatoes and grated cheese.
