We went in the afternoon for tea, the staff were so friendly and welcoming. We were the first ones to arrive, so we got the choice of where we wanted to sit. You could either sit in the play area and eat or just outside of the room, the first thing I noticed was that the play area was in a separate area to the rest of the restaurant so other guests who didn't have children didn't have to worry about the noise, which I thought was fantastic.
The layout of the play area was brilliant, they had a section for toddlers, a big section that even Kacy enjoyed it at the age of 9. They had a tv room with different episodes of denis the menace on, colouring activities and with it being a reopening they had someone doing face painting. The play area is £3 for 90 minutes, which I thought was really reasonable and especially cos you can stay and eat in there too.

After Kira got her fix of the play area and before there was a queue, Kira went and got her face painted, one of the staff showed her where she was and helped her pick what she was having done, it took a while to convince Kacy to have her face painted but she had it done before we ate. Summer was happy with the wristband she got and some juice.
|So much detail in the face paint and it took the lady minutes to do amazing.|
Then it was time to meet Denis the Menace, if you know my youngest you will know she is terrified of people in costumes, so we did get a fair few tears, it wasn't just once he came in he came in 4-5 times throughout the visit which I thought was really good, giving the children plenty of time to meet Denis, he even got into the play area with the children. The staff were so patient with the children especially the ones that were unsure or scared, it took Summer an hour after him coming in and out of the room before she would go up and speak to him, then he started doing high fives with the all the children which amused them for 10 minutes

Then it was time for tea, the staff asked everyone to sit down and to be patient with them due to the amount of people there, which was a lot more then I think they were expecting.
The food came, it all looked really well presented and was delicious, the girls loved the fact that they got denis the menace paper under there food.

We all had a fantastic afternoon, we are hoping they redo our Brewers faye in Winwick, because we would definitely go again.
