Play - Create - Relax - Indulge 

Joy Tots is a welcoming place for parents and carers to be able to relax, play and create with their little ones. We offer great coffee, delicious food, a safe clean play area and wonderful drop in craft opportunities.  

Also check out our brilliant range of classes or join us at the weekend for one of our parties. 

Covid-19 Update...Now open Monday to Thursday - classes 10am, take away and bookings 11.30-4pm.

We are pleased to say that we are gradually getting back to the Joy Tots you know and love; it feels like a long time coming! You can still enjoy a take away service, where you can get great coffee and sweet treats to go. We have also extended our retail to include craft supplies, plain and printed clothes, books and teething aids. We are now operating a pre booking only system for both our play area and tables, see below for more details and bookings. Keep an eye on our class calendar as more gets introduced.


We take the health and well-being of our staff and customers very seriously so please read the guidance below before making a booking. 

We can't wait to have you back, Joy Tots just hasn't been the same without all the happy babies!

Get In Touch

Three and a half years ago as relatively new friends, and new mums to seven month olds, we saw what a great opportunity taking on Joy Tots could be. We are Sally and Louise and our little ones are James and Lila. Having met pregnant, and tentatively embarking on our NCT course, it seems crazy to think how far we have come! We both have backgrounds in hospitality and events; and now (limited!) experience as new mums; we hope to use our experience to continue all the amazing things Joy Tots was to people who knew it and loved it, and bring some exciting new additions for those who are yet to discover our lovely little haven. We can't wait to meet you all!
