Visited twice in one week whilst staying near Bude as weather wasn’t brilliant. My son (5) loved it, spent the morning running off some steam. Food really nice on both occasions and quick to be brought to table. Staff really welcoming and friendly, would definitely return.

Went here yesterday as we were staying in Widemouth bay & my 16 month old Granddaughter was down for the weekend & with the weather being cold & windy the beach was to Stormy for a young child,so when passing from shopping at Morrison’s my mother in law spotted The Venue Soft Play Area which was a big bonus for us,Granddaughter enjoyed it.

I wanted to find a local soft play area for my young son whilst down in Bude and this place came up so went along.

The place is quite affordable and looked like fun to suit different ages.

I allowed my son and older step daughter loose in there and then I went in there to have some fun with my son.

The place is hard work to navigate and move around as an adult as it’s very tight fitting. Just perfect for kids but you need to be quite nimble as an adult to move about in the place. I’m not one to give up easy plus I wanted some play time with my son do got stuck in.

There is some pretty awesome slides in there that are quite steep. On the middle death drop slide my son wimped out and backed away so I just grabbed him and dropped him down it ignoring his cries to get away. He totally loved it and kept looping round to ‘do it again’. And again, and again......

Brilliant little place but need to put maglock security doors in place as I aware of some other children escaping

Get there early if a rainy day is forecast as tables and chairs are in short supply....3 children (2,5 and 6) loved it here, up and down the levels and slides. They were shattered when we left. It does get busy and with so many children in there at any time it is hard to keep eyes on the kids...any excuse to get in there myself!!

Definitely would return when next in the area and the weathers soggy!
