"We've visited lots of soft play centres in Essex but this is my favourite. It's a nice size, clean, yummy food and the staff always go the extra mile. We went to breakfast with Santa this morning and it was good value for money and the characters were fab, we'll definitely attend more events in future"

"My 3 year old had he's birthday party here this year, I was so pleased with how it went all the children had a great time. Paw patrol made a appearance which the birthday boy & he's friends loved in the party room. 
Also the staff was very nice & couldn't have been more helpful. Would definitely recommend to others & possibly have a party here again next year. Thanks again"

"Would recommend Stay and Play to everyone. Had such a lovely time there, the facilities were very clean, the food was lovely and very reasonably priced and the staff were friendly. As soon as we told Sarah that it was our first visit she went out of her way to tell us a little bit about the place and took time out during our visit to ask how we were finding our experience. 
To top it all off the entrance price is very reasonable compared to other soft play places. We will definitely be making it a regular thing and would definitely recommend to others
