    The laughing barrel should not be on here as a child friendly cafe. I took my 2 year old son due to the recommendation on here, the pictures must be about 5 years old as the play area looks nothing like the picture. There was barbed wire sticking out on the fence of the play area, broken pieces of metal all over the place, it was extremely dirty and the food was awful. Out of 8 meals on the menu only 1 was available. Please take down as I do not want others to experience the same.
