Pleasant Surprise
Jun 2021 • Family
Haven't been here since before the first lockdown in 2020 and what a pleasant surprise it was!.
The new owners have made it look great you can tell it's had some much needed TLC bright and clean and modern looking. We booked in few days before which was easy to do, staff there are all polite and friendly, the playcentre is very clean, staff are cleaning whilst you are there which is great to see as it's not like that in some. Covid-19 rules are in place and tables are social distancing we felt very safe in there and will definitely be returning keep up the good work!!

There is always a complainer
Sep 2020 • Family
I have visited Jimmy Beans many times with my grand children. I have always found the staff extremely polite, friendly and accommodating. They have certain rules set in place as most businesses do. Minimum spend on cards is £5.00 as a fee is charged to the business by the card companies. This is no different to any other business. If you want to pay the matter of pence on a piece of fruit then make sure you have a bit of change on you. The fact you are attending a party were food is provided is no excuse for not having a quid in your purse. The place closes at 6pm and they stop serving food at 5.15 pm nowhere serves till the door closes as they need to clean the kitchens and equipment. The staff are probably only paid for half an hour or so after closing so start clearing earlier. If you attend a party at 4pm heavily pregnant and the cafe closes at 5.15 eat before you go. I personally have always found the staff lovely. As for smirking I doubt that very much.

Party guest
Dec 2019 • Family
My son was invited to a Party here and we didn’t see him very much at all as he was busy playing with his friends
Sat in a great area so we could see him on all of the activities
Tea coffee snacks purchase available
Free parking but car park a bit small so allow yourself time
Clean and well presented
Toilets were very cold though unlike the main area
No WiFi

Birthday Party
Oct 2019 • Family
Been here a few times and had my daughters birthday party here recently. Overall it was fine, but the organisation wasn’t great in terms of seating. I didn’t like the fact another party was taking place and members of the public were seated that close to the party table the kids at my daughters party struggled to get to sit down at the table. The lady was great doing the cake, but I wasn’t allowed to give the list of names for guests so when people turned up and added siblings that we weren’t paying for I had to look down the list and say who is this etc? It just didn’t seem to make sense. Surely it would be better to give the list of whose invited and if they’re not on the list make them pay on the door?? The place is okay but very rammed and just too busy too many children all at once. The baby toys don’t work either they have no batteries so not the best for those too small for the slides etc. I will still take my daughter back to play, but wouldn’t rave about the place or the venue as a party. We just weren’t a priority despite how much it was costing us.

Rude staff!!!!
Mar 2019 • Family
I took my son to soft play yesterday been taking him for years and never had a problem before. I was supervising him as i usually do and he kept climbing on the slide to which i kept telling him to get down. A lady who worked there with dark hair and glasses came over and told me shes told him to stop climbing 4 times now. I explained i had told him but he doesn't understand as he has autism and developmental delay but he was listening to me and she told me if he does it again we'd have to leave. Bareing in mind there was so many other children climbing and throwing toys down the slide who had nothing said to them and parents werent even telling them to stop.She was so abrupt and rude and kept staring over at us giving us dirty looks so we ended up just leaving early. Even though the situation was explained to her she was still so rude and unsympathetic. Needless to say i will never take him back. That lady needs the sack such a lack of customer service skills and rudeness

Great playcentre
Oct 2018 • Family
I come here alot with my young daughter the staff always polite and helpful. Its clean and the staff clean throughout the day unlike some playcentres!. Reasonable prices for the children to play and the food and drinks prices are good too. Great for parties too. It can get very busy at peak times. Would recommend this playcentre.

Good to keep older kids busy
Jul 2018 • Family
Came here for the first time with my 1 year old
Was a bit disappointed as all the baby toys in the under 3 area have no batteries and do not work
But the rest if the play area is great as I took my 8 year old who in didn't see for ages. Running all over the place
Will be visiting again :)
