I love a soft play Centre and today myself and my little man went to one we haven’t been to before. The staff were so friendly, saying hello to MJ as we went in before me… I like that in places for kids. The price was reasonable compared to others we have visited. The whole place was clean and tidy, the staff were continuously busy. MJ went straight into the play area and had lots of fun climbing, he was able to do all of the areas which he loved, only one area is a struggle for adults but only children able should really go on the larger slide anyway so this wasn’t an issue. I played with him for a little while but was then able to sit and watch him whilst I had a drink… Loved that I could see the whole play area… Easy to keep an eye on him.

I was so pleased to find somewhere that had soya milk and decaf as others I have previously visited had said they wouldn’t sell it 😞 My hot chocolate was lush. For lunch I ordered a bacon panini, it was lovely but Way to much food on my plate, only half the amount of crisps and salad were really needed. The staff were happy to answer all my food questions (I am fussy) and went out of their way to ensure I was happy. The childrens meal deal was a fabulous price at £3.80 and MJ enjoyed it all. One slight thing, it wasn’t until sandwich arrived that I realised I wasn’t given a choice of brown or white bread for him… Will ask that next time though he did eat it anyway.

Our first experience of the Hive at Shefford in Bedfordshire was very positive and we look forward to go back again soon.
