Greenacres Kids Cafe, Hampton Hill


Us Mums living in and around Twickenham are pretty spoilt for choice when it comes to the number of brilliant soft play areas and kids cafes we have nearby. But one that I am particularly keen on is Greenacres in Hampton Hill.

I was only introduced to it last week and I loved it straight away. Bang slap in the middle of the high street - which has FREE PARKING (mega bonus) - it's a lovely little cafe, with a great menu and lots to keep the small people entertained.

The menu. Simple cafe food; sandwiches, paninis, jacket spuds and hot meals. Hot & cold drinks. Lunchboxes for the kids. All very reasonably priced indeed.

The activities. A large play area suitable for up to fifteen children at a time, packed full of toys (some admittedly a bit dated but not something that bothers me), books and even a computer for older kids. The best bit is that it is supervised by a fully trained manager, Petya, who keeps an eye on the children and gets them involved in arts & crafts during quieter sessions. It is a complete BARGAIN at only £2.50 an hour to play - having a supervisor there really does mean you can relax a bit and enjoy a coffee which makes such a difference. Of course you can still see your child at all times but it takes the pressure off and, when we went, Daisy was having so much fun painting and playing shopping with the other children that she didn't look for me once! Note to self: next time take laptop down and get some blogging done!

Even better, the play area can be used as a creche if you need an hour or two to yourself to pop to the shops/the hairdressers etc (plenty of both in Hampton Hill!). For a slightly higher fee you can leave your child with Petya and nip out for some 'you' time.

Fiiiiinally, children's classes are held at the cafe. These are subject to change but currently include cooking classes, music sessions and French lessons! Contact the cafe for more info including an up to date timetable and prices.
