Play Cafe

We are open with bright smiles all week long!

Join us for a play and a coffee, mid-week lunch or catch up for some family time at weekend brunch.

We are open for breakfast, lunch and snacks Monday – Friday serving delicious home-made food for kids and grown-ups alike.

At weekends it’s all about chilling out: choose dippy eggs, sourdough deliciousness, pukka porridge and much, much more… The play area is always open for fun and giggles.

We run a busy weekly timetable and have tracked down the best practitioners and child specialists to run dedicated classes for babies, children and their carers. There’s something for everyone, be it weekly ballet or a drop-in music class.

All of the classes apart from ballet are cash payable direct to the teacher.

Always check ahead to make sure the class is running.

Take a peek at our timetable!


Our termly ballet school commences after the Easter Holidays.

A gentle introduction for little ones to dance, movement and ballet. Our classes start from 2.5 years and run up to aged 6.

The ballet classes are not drop in, they run on a termly basis and in conjunction with the school timetable.

Over the years we’ve entertained thousands of children and watched them leave with huge happy smiles. We carefully plan and run each event so you get to sit back and enjoy the merry mayhem. Our parties are suitable for 3 years upwards, and we can run everything from discos to themed party fun from pirates to princesses, to superheroes and sparkly fairies. Just ask and we’ll be sure to accommodate.

Parents are welcome to stay and join in the fun. We have space for parents to enjoy hot drinks, nibbles or a glass of something stronger.
