Dark gloomy and reeking of old chip fat. The kids seem to like it but there really isn't much to do. They need to make it a nicer place for adults so that we are more inclined to take the kids there. I would rather...More

I hate this place - its always dirty and maybe poor ventilation in the kitchen, as it smells like a vat. However the kids don't care, and always have a lovely time. I wish the staff would monitor the littlies area - big kids invade...More

Great place to take your little ones to burn off energy while parents sit back and relax and catch up with other parents!

Coffee was good, kids had a ball. A bit dated but the kids don't care and neither did I. Chipmunks has always been our default place to go and we'll be back again.

The kids loved it, but the place is a little dirty and staff disinterested. Service from café really poor and slow. But entertaining the kids was the main thing and that ticked the box. Parking outside limited, but plenty in surrounding streets.

A good clean and some better lighting would benefit I think. Staff were lovely but had the most terrible coffee

Correct me if I am wrong but this is a place for children?? The staff that were on seemed to be the most un child friendly people I have met. Think they need to rethink their job choice. The place was freezing, wasn't that clean...More
