Not impressed really. Just another "same old, same old" ball place. Parking is impossible too. Definitely won't be recommending it!!

Any grandad with boisterous under 10s can relax with a fresh cuppa and cake and enjoy the kids having a terrific time. An hour or two well spent. Excellent value with friendly staff.

Reasonably priced soft play offering entertainment for the little ones- only issue is parking as it can get really busy.

Lovely meet, staff were friendly, meal prices good for value. My kids love it here. Excellent for young children, parties and meeting up with kids for food, coffee, cake etc make sure your children have socks to be able to go into the play areas
