An exciting Soft Play area and Cafe for children. We have a seperate area for babies, toddlers and juniors. The Time Cafe will serve fresh Coffee, homebakes and for light lunches we will offer fresh daily soups, sandwiches and Pizza's - with our Specials board changing regularly so your experience will be different each time you come. Its very relaxed and you will feel that you have gone to your friends for a cuppa.
