    Lovely place to meet up.
    Inside it is very safe, and because it can be very noisy and busy, I was on edge in case I lost sight of my grandaughter and she got out. I now know that this would never happen. It is gated inside that needs to be opened by staff, so no one escapes. The kids love it and enjoy eating there too. They have a food bar which provides some lovely dishes and plenty of drinks to select from. We keep going back for more.

    Great 4th Birthday Party
    Had our daughters 4th birthday here with 20 kids and can't fault a thing. She had the best time and so did all her friends. A special thanks to Tiffany who looked after us today and made sure everything ran perfectly and just how we wanted it

    Christmas event
    We’ve just arrived home from the Christmas event. Wow! I cannot praise this place highly enough! The staff go to extremes to make sure the children have fun, it was all really well organised, and a great atmosphere too! Thanks so much to all the staff, as always the kids all had a great time 😀

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have been going to Stay and Play for a few years now but held my daughter's 6th birthday here at the weekend. I would highly recommend. The staff are organised, friendly and make the experience really pleasant. The food is great and the kids had such a great time. It was also great value for money. It was nice to plan a party and have someone else take care of it on the day so I could spend time talking to parents and friends that came along! I would definitely book again! Thank you to all the staff and especially Brooke who was our party host on the day.

Baby changing area was very clean, play equipment was generally in good repair and clean but cafe seating area was absolutely disgusting! There was food all over the floor, dirty tables and highchairs left with food all over them. The place was not overly busy and staff were either chatting or stacking chairs, walking past the obviously dirty tables! I was there for 50 mins and not one table was cleaned?

Never again will I attend this soft play. The staff are rude, took nearly 2 hours for our order of drinks and food to come, after Inquirying how long it will be they then made a announcement saying there will be a wait for food and drink. Once my drink came there was something in it that wasn't meant to be in there, took it back and they argued about giving a refund, then my food came and it was missing stuff from it and when taking it bad the manager rolled her eyes at me and was very attitudy with me. Poor staff.

Best stay and play around. Post covid there are booking slots which are brilliant, always clean and tidy.
Staff always helpful and accommodating.

Food is really good and great value for money.

We visit often and are always happy with it all

We had breakfast with Santa in 2016 with my first daughter and I couldn't resist booking again to take her again now she's 7 with her little sister who is 3. We love Stay and Play any time of the year. It's clean, secure and they do great food! It's the perfect size so you can watch your child easily once you are worn out from chasing them around. They have all the little extra's you need for your small people and can't do enough to help you. Breakfast with Santa is incredibly well organised. You get an awesome breakfast and then a visit with Santa. My girls got the most gorgeous gifts that they have cuddled all day and I got lots of lovely pictures. They got to dance with Peppa Pig and the princesses, play on the play equipment and Santa even came out to sing Christmas songs with us.

It was our first time coming today and glad we did! It was very welcoming, clean and great for the age of my son 10 months and his cousin 2 years old. It had lots to do and the good thing was you could see everything from the outside. My little boy loved crawling and climbing in the younger area and exploring and to top ot off they had a lovely sensory room which was fantastic for children, again clean and lots to do . Will definitely be coming back and recommend to others.

Had a brilliant visit here with two year old twins and a 9 month old, it’s a fantastic place with lovely and helpful staff. Will definitely go again. We had a great lunch there too, nice coffee and our little ones had a lot of fun. The sensory room is wonderful and the whole play area has plenty to do as lots of toys have been added. Can’t wait to visit again. Thank you!
