Most disgusting place I've ever been to. Food still on cutlery and plates etc which was dried up and clearly from old food. Watched a member of staff drop some food on the floor and continue to serve it to a customer. My mug had lipstick still around the rim. It's an absolute joke consider the manager is old you would think she has become smart enough to realise when things need cleaning even if her eyesight is failing. Staff are absolutely horrible especially one in particular Culsom I believe she's called. Play area is dirty parties are a shambles and party decor is from the 1980s. Freezing cold because they can't afford heating. Just an absolute disgrace fidgets is a million times better than this hell hole. Will never return- keep your children away if you care for their wellbeing and safety

I recently visited this play centre and to be honest was not very happy with the staff there. Whilst getting a drink, my 7 year old child had accessed a non-play area and I heard the one of the staff shouting at her in a very unprofessional manner. I found the staff had very bad attitudes and most of the time were too busy playing with their mobile phones. A smile would have been nice too. I won't be taking my children to play here again.
