“Good fun for an hour or so when wet”
Review of The Monkey House - CLOSED

Reviewed 20 August 2016 via mobile

Smallish indoor play area for young children (up to age 5/6 would be fine). Serves coffe and light refreshments. Separate soft play area for young toddlers (up to 3 years old) and a completely separate area set aside as a party room.

This place is excellent value for money and had plenty for our 18 month old granddaughter to do including a ball pit and toys. The staff were polite and friendly although not always attentive. Food for the children wasn't especially healthy or child friendly.

Hiya..thanks for your review..i was wondering what you meant by not healthy or kid friendly food, since everything is oven cooked and not deep fried and pretty standard kids food with nuggets ,pasta, pizza etc with mash as an alternative to chips. We are in the process of rethinking the menu and would welcome your opinion so we can get it right and improve what's on offer.

Had to wait half an hour for 2 toasted panini's!!! Average food, and why do cafes give you your coffee which always goes cold before your food comes? Great place for the 5 and 3 year old to play though.

I ran in here with my little one to get out of the rain. Lots of parking outside. Nice little business, good coffee and a lovely brownie! On playing in the little ball pit with my toddler, I found the play area could do with a good clean. It smells a bit unpleasant and the ball pit and toys are a bit sticky and dusty, obviously a by-product of lots of different children using them, but still... The play area is extremely small, but as there was only 1 other child in there it wasn't a problem. It's more tables and chairs than anything, so expect more of a cafe than a play area. Wouldn't plan to come here again, but was very useful to shelter in and keep the little one happy whilst waiting for the rain to stop.

Wet or dry dull day this is the place in Dawlish to take the younger children to let them burn off their excess energy and for you to enjoy watching their antics while you yourself have some relaxing time.
