Shakees, yesterday [Saturday 17th March], was the venue for a private Birthday party for our 5year-old grandson and 20 of his friends. The friendly staff could not have been more helpful or accommodating and an excellent time was had by all.

This is a great place for young children and parents. While the children play with a numerous choice of toys, climbing frame & ball pool, parents can enjoy coffee or a snack. It can also be hired for birthday parties.
