We have been a regular visitor to Little Monsters for about 4 years and we went yesterday for the first time since Covid. I am very impressed with the Covid precautions put in place. The booking system is easy and there are lots of hand sanitizer around. The staff were proactive in cleaning regularly and still had time to build trust with the children. Little Monsters has never let us down and we are so privileged to be living so close to it. Back in November we had my sons birthday party there and Kieran was so amazing with the children. Little Monsters is always clean, well maintained and fun soft play and the food is amazing and good value. Highly recommended.Margaret S
