Grandson enjoys visiting, but it is extremely noisy and too many children are running around out of control. Grandson is only three and a half, and I fear for his safety, as too many parents fail to control their children and there is no staff...More

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.

I cant believe that people go here! The soft play area is tiny and unattended (the staffed counter is miles away), the Soft play itself was ripped with the padding coming out and the play mats that were intended for babies to play on were...More
