“Door shut in our face”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We went here on a Sunday afternoon at 2.30pm. Well what I mean is we tried to go in and the door was pushed closed on our 7 year old's face by a man who then shooed us away through the door. The "Closed" sign was immediately turned around even though there were people inside sitting at the tables - who could have been staff, but this was an extremely rude way of telling us they had closed for the day. Have been here a couple of times and enjoyed it but we will never return. Our son couldn't understand what he'd done wrong.
