    "Great place for the kids, super safe environment from enclosed soft play down to the plastic cutlery. My daughters were very impressed with the colouring in books and their jam jar orange juices! Food was superb, tasted great and brilliant presentation. Hope more people discover this lovely little place and it grows into something very popular as it's obvious a lot of thought has gone into it. Will be back soon!" (Emily, July 2015)
