Went here for the first time, downstairs in the play area. I must say friendly staff and clean area. The atmosphere was lovely it was clam and because we went after school it wasn't busy. The food was perfect for tea. I am not sure about the upstairs area for parties I would prefer party downstairs. A great place to... More

after paying full price for 2 children (7 & 3) and buying drinks etc. My 8 month old wanted to get down from my lap and have a look at the tiny area. We were then asked to pay full price for her. I only had enough change for 80% of this cost. Instead of taking the money they did... More

Was pleasantly surprised. Outside needs a bit of a spruce up but inside we were greeted by a very cheerful lady (owner?). Everywhere was very clean and there were plenty of activities and stimuli for our 2year old grandson. The place isn't huge but who cares. Tables were clean and so were the toilets. Thanks

Spent a lovely afternoon here with my three children, great value entrance and meal deal. Had a lovely lunch myself. Brilliant value for money!

I had heard it was run by new owners and when we entered could see how much effort had been put into making the place look bright and cheerful. The staff made every effort to chat and take notice of my children and want them to have fun. Food was good and as mine are slightly older they chose off... More
