“awful!”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

this place is only suitable for babies! or very tiny toddlers! why open a play place which is very nicely decorated and so much space is taken up with other things and make the actual play area so small?! saw loads of people ask for a refund wish I had myself....also cafe not great, coffee unpleasant and staff quite rude!

“Awful! Where's the rest? To expensive”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Expensive rubbish, I actually asked the girl at the cafe where was the play area for my 2 children who are 5 and 6 lol she looked at me as though I was daft but it's only suitable from around 18 months to 3 year old. I then ordered a tea and handed it back as it tasted like a value tea bag I just paid I think 2.60 or something for though not exactly 2.60 could have been slightly more or slightly less but awful place!!!!

“Dull”
Reviewed May 24, 2012 via mobile

I have taken my 4 year old to Captain Jack's once - to a birthday party - and despite being with a group of friends he was bored. The play areais much too small for any child over the age of 2. And I can imagine that getting upstairs to the play area with a toddler would be tough. We'll stick to Happytown.
