Kids Play Cafe in Bournemouth (formerly Role Play World) is now under new ownership and their passion for providing a safe, fun and welcoming venue for young children is clear. 2 lovely local ladies took over the business last year and we went along recently with friends so see what changes had been made. Booking session times has now been removed so that you can arrive at a time more convenient for you and we all had a lovely hour or so playing with the kiddies and enjoying lunch together.
Children love to learn through play and there’s certainly enough to keep them occupied. There is good choice of play areas which included the pirate ship, fire engine, choo choo train, construction zone, play house, baby area and castle. The latter was most probably our favourite and my daughter spent ages going up the turret and down the slide again and again and again. There’s also plenty of toys and props in each area plus a large assortment of fancy dress clothes which little Lucy just had to try on.
While we were there we ordered hot drinks and lunch for us all. The kids pick and mix lunches are brilliant with plenty of choice including sandwiches, veggie sticks, yoghurt, cheese, biscuits, crisps, fruit and drinks. Children can choose 5 of these items and it’s great value at £3.50.* We ordered one kids hot meal, one cold and a couple of paninis and chips for myself and my friend. Everything was perfectly cooked and it was great for us to be able to enjoy it even when the children had finished and gone back to playing. Other food on the menu included soup, sandwiches, toasties, jacket potatoes and light snacks like crumpets, toast, beans on toast and cake.
Good to know…………….
There is buggy space however it’s not a huge area and it’s probably recommended that you don’t bring it unless you have to.
Toilet facilities include a lovely baby change area.
There is plenty of road side parking but please check the signs to see how long you are able to park for as they vary.
