Tiny Teacups Play Café offers three different play areas for children in view of their parents.

We know how important it is to keep little ones occupied in safe and secure surroundings, whilst being able to enjoy a bit of down time with a good coffee and cake! 

We have an environment that welcomes social interaction with both child and parent, and parent and parent, a feeling of community

Parents, grandparents or carers can take young children to play safely while they enjoy a hot drink and cake.

The play café caters for children aged up to five-years-old. There are three play areas, one for up to 12 months, one for 12 months to three years and the third is for three to five years.

The cafe has both adult and children’s menus and has a five star food hygiene rating from South Ribble Borough Council.

The café is also an ideal venue for birthday parties, christenings and other events.

The kitchen closes half an hour before the play areas but there will always be coffee & cake!
