We go here a couple times a week with my granddaughter shes nearly 2 years old, she loves it, she goes on the baby area on her own now. And she loves the little disco they do, she loves a little boogie?

The activity centre was great and the children all enjoyed, however the food was not so good, cheap fish fingers with minced grey coloured fish inside which were binned, so food very disappointing.

Kids always really enjoy it here. My daughter had party here two years ago and it was fab and plenty of food. Sometimes can be a little too busy as last time we had nowhere to sit whilst children played. Best soft play in area.
