Hello, thank you for taking the time to review us. The staff were delighted to receive positive comments on their friendly manner.

As you stated in your review that you are a regular, Harriet and Emily would welcome feedback on the extensive food menu. If when you are next in you have time to let them know where you think they need to improve they would really welcome this conversation.

Or if you had time to leave feedback at hello@thegoodplaycafe.co.uk it will be read by Harriet and Emily and fed back to the rest of the team.

We have all worked hard to cater for our customers and changed our menu since opening in 2012. We are continually seeking ways to improve.

Thanks again for taking the time to review us.

It is totally child friendly and the staff cannot do enough for you. There's book clubs and some after school clubs too.

“Fun indoor play centre in Southbourne”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

I love taking my daughter to the GPC in Southbourne, we both have a lovely time. The play frame is a safe, clean and fun apparatus, the food is delicious and healthy and the staff are friendly and helpful. The parties look brilliant value for money with amazing cakes and the party tables are a feast of colour and good food. When are you opening one up in Oxfordshire?! It's a winning combination and a great alternative to the beach when it's wet or you just want a break from the sand.
