We hired Captain Jacks for my sons 5th birthday party. He had an absolutely fabulous time. There were 34 children in all and the customer service was amazing. We had full use of the soft play areas and they inflated the bouncy castle for the party. Plenty of food for the tea and there was no shortage of squash/water for... More

Have taken my youngest grandson (5yrs old) on numerous ocassions over the years.Although it's ok to take young children for a couple of hrs it has not improved, due to lack of space,over the years.The food is expensive and basic for what it is.They do hold parties etc etc but not really sure of the cost per head.

We really enjoy going to this play centre. There is lots of space and room for large groups. There is a baby area, an under 4s area, a larger play centre with big slides and a football / basketball area. The food is good and not too expensive. The after school play and eat deal is really good value for... More

Another three hours spent with three children all very happily playing. My husband and I enjoyed a great cup of coffee while watching our charges running around safely. The staff were quick to sweep up the mess left by others who do not seem to know what litter bins are for.

This place could be and should so much better. Unorganised , messy dirty . Too many tables that are never cleared even when it's quiet . Could be more play equipment but that wouldn't get cleaned either
