"Lovely little place and staff were really helpful and friendly.

My son (aged 2.5) loved it, especially the fact that he was allowed to let his dinosaur ride the train! My little girl (aged 1.5) also loved it and enjoyed looking at the lights and climbing in the tunnels!

Food was homemade and really tasty too"
