The happy castle has been refurbished and offers more light and a better menu. Kids loved it and I was able to have a good cup of coffee and watch while they tired themselves out. Excellent for a rainy days activity with young children

They make chips nice with cheese, it's ok for a snack, I am not very fussy however I was not tempted by anything else on offer, I feel nice plates and good presentation would make a big difference
