My 16 month old daughter had a fantastic time here. There is a dedicated under 4s bit for toddlers as well as a larger play area for all children. She loved all of it. For the parents, tea and coffee served in real mugs (not plastic/foam cups) and very reasonably priced food. The young lad behind the counter was incredibly... More

I have been coming here off and on for about 7 years with various grandchildren and it has always been very enjoyable for them. The staff are lovely and helpful and the place is kept very clean always. I was surprised to read from one reviewer that she thought it was not well looked after as the staff are always... More

First at all, be aware that this place can become over-crowded very quickly and easy. But it is still great place to take kids to if there is rainy day or you just need to entertain them somehow. We come here with our kids too and they love it. I think you can also collect stamps so after a few... More

never the place for some peaceful time but if you have energetic kids this is great to keep them occupied and let them run loose.

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. When you ordered food there was bread available but we had run out of burger buns as the delivery was late arriving that day. This was communicated to you at the time the order was placed and the response was " no problem I rarely eat the bun anyway, can... More

The soft play has a better cafe than average, and a dedicated room for parties. The play area is better suited to younger children, over 5s may find it boring after a while,

I am ashamed to say this but I went to another soft play place the other week.....I have learned from my huge error and will not stray from Madhouse again! Madhouse is bright, clean, spacious, friendly and safe.....you can see your little ones with ease, there is just the right amount of play things and it's always clean, and plenty... More

Thank you Daisy, your kind comments are much appreciated. The team work really hard to keep The Mad House clean and tidy at all times and it is great to know that it does not go unnoticed. The kids love the slide when it is newly polished - it is normally the parents who find it scary! ☺ we look... More

I visit this soft play regularly and really like it. There is an area for little ones under 4 which is definitely age appropriate, and a larger area for older children. I still take my little one in this area but as she is under 4 I go with her. There is also plenty of seating and a cafe for... More
