Great for young babies too.

I visited here with my ten month old baby on a Monday lunchtime. I usually find that soft plays are too big for him but there was plenty for him to do here with the sensory room... read more

Fab place for kids to play. Not enough staff. Tables not cleared. A basic chips n nuggets took 40 mins, not enough staff. Orders of food didn't come together. Parents kept leaving the latch open in the under 3 play area 🙈when u have a child that doesn't speak n she has disappeared because some selfish adult has left the... More

I visited here with my ten month old baby on a Monday lunchtime. I usually find that soft plays are too big for him but there was plenty for him to do here with the sensory room and the area for under 3's too. It was free to get in due to the time of day which was great too.... More

Kids enjoy the variety of play apparatus, often bits of food on the floor and mess, but this is to be expected when children running around. Menu has a good variety of food, but rather overpriced. Younger staff very friendly and certain members of the older staff could learn a thing or two about customer services from the younger ones.... More

Always a favourite with the grandchildren. Compact and secure and allowing you full view of your children at all times. A good healthy menu with a good variety. Can be at times a shortage of parking.

Called here on a rainy Saturday afternoon with my 8 year old.was £4.95 to get in (about right for these places). We managed to get a table after hovering around waiting for pity from people leaving! In fairness the guy on desk had warned us there may not be tables due to how busy it was and parties.the play area... More

First time we ever visited, thought it would be ideal to knock my kids out. It was over packed, more busy than the staff could handle and there was a party too. The party was the main issue, would have been nice if it was in a separate room rather than in main seating area....food got everywhere........my kids enjoyed playing,... More

Really nice place. This play centre is a bit smaller than some I have been to but I prefer that as you can keep an eye on your children more easily. There is a separate under 4 part with soft play and a bigger over 4 climbing sift play area with ball pool and slides. There is a lot of... More

My little one is only 13 months and usually at soft play centres there isn't a lot for really littles ones- only a ball pit. But the bit for under 3s was great!!!! So much for him to do and problem solving on the walls- kept him busy for over an hour when usually he clings to me. Went on... More
