A great children's party and play centre. We do various party packages and offers for customers. We have a full menu for food and drinks at reasonable prices. The children's equipment is based on a pirate ship complete with masts and sails. Come and...more
I took my 3 year old son here and it's the 1st time since it's been cleaned up.
The entrance is better & seems safer so kids can't get out.
I paid for the summer deal to play and have a hot meal (my son...More
We have been several times with our granddaughter but this was the busiest we have ever known it. When we arrived just after dinner on Saturday, one of the staff told us there was a 2 hour play limit with it being full and that...More
Decent enough atmosphere and not too badly priced. Food is average at best. Took 2 attempts to get the order right. Not a bad place to kill a couple of hours on a weekend although there are better play centres around there are also worse.
Hands down the worst place I could have ever taken my children! Spent £9 getting in and within about 30 seconds we decided to leave! Children fighting, parents swearing and the overall place was disgusting! Never again will I ever take my children to this...More
We recently attended a birthday party and came away very impressed. Set out as most play centres are, but my son liked that it was shaped like a pirate ship and enjoyed playing on the different levels.
I had a hot drink, this was nice...More
We really loved it here when we went recently. Staff were friendly, it was clean, spacious and lots for the kids to do! Obviously the new owners have done a lot of work to make it nice! The only thing I would change is provision...More

Thank you for the review. We are happy to hear that you enjoy visiting us and staff appreciate it. We are looking into options for special dietary requirements but as yet have not found a feasible way of bringing in a soya milk option.
The place itself is tucked away on an industrial estate the car park however can get busy especially if there are any parties on.
When we entered the building, the first thing that was clear was not enough staff. It took ages to pay to...More

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately we were short staffed due to illness last week.
We always use this playcentre but won't be anymore. It's really gone down hill. Everything appears mucky and smells like fat fryers all the time.
The last time we visited is what's made me write a review. 2 young staff members on front and a...More

Hi, We are sorry your visit was substandard, it would be helpful to know which day you visited so we can address issues with the staff who were on shift. The kitchen is normally open until 5pm so I need to investigate why it wasn't....More
Food did not arrive until 5 minutes before end of party.
Staff we rude. When I went to the counter to pay for a drink there was no one there.
This is the closest play centre to my home but don't think we'll be going...More
1st hour on play-frame great - massive soft-play climbing area with slides etc for kids to run wild - fantastic. It was the sit-down bit of the party that was the big let down - Our 'party host' was a nice but over-whelmed teen who...More

I am glad to hear you enjoyed the centre and liked it. I am sorry that your party experience was not up to scratch. I see it says you visited in December, since the middle of January we have been working on retraining the Party...More

Hi, We have made great efforts to improve the centre since new ownership last autumn. Under 1s are free yes so you won't be charged. The prices for childminders/foster carers is a discounted price they pay per child that they bring not for themselves, sorry for the confusion. I will look at the website to see why you couldn't see this on the tab. Thank you.
