Nice menu, food always prepared fresh. Service can be a bit hit and miss though. Plenty of parking available. They do serve nice coffee here. Can get very busy at lunch times that is when they need more people taking orders etc.

Turned up one day during the week so not a busy day, we were 1st ones in with my daughter. Nice smell of bleach walking in so obviously you would think it had been cleaned no issue there, I thought. We happened to use the...More

This is without a doubt my favourite (and more importantly my kids) soft play destination - even though it’s 30 mins drive from my house. I have a 1.5 and a 3.5 year old and it has plenty to do for both of them -...More

Great space for the kids. Play area was clean and well maintained. Staffing levels seemed a little short and the ones on came across a little harassed!! Counter service slow, but food came out fast. Should look to offer healthier options for kids, especially as...More

The soft play facility itself is good, however.... it's too full of people, badly laid out so staff are carrying food through the sitting area, ventilation I'm not sure can be legal - couldn't see any (just air coolers which circulate the same air) and...More

My 3 year old grandson absolutely loves it. Very good value for money, food was excellent and reasonably priced (we did have to wait half an hour from ordering, but it was peak time around 12.30). The staff are friendly and helpful, and the play/eating...More

Really lovely soft play with a really nice atmosphere. Light and airy with loads for the little ones to go on and a separate area for toddlers. Great slide and ball shoot area. Plenty of seating for parents both upstairs and down, but get there...More

The set up is brilliant, but I'm always disappointed when we come here. The facilities look modern and exciting but it's actually poorly maintained and you are served by some grumpy and uninspiring teenagers who don't seem to have any customer services training. Food could...More
