Oh and I should say, I don't *expect* that everyone who comes to my house brings food & tidies up. I like having friends over, giving them nice fruit or home-baked goodies But a thank you and a bit of thoughtfulness is appreciated.

I always take food. Last play date I made scones and homemade raspberry jam. Normally I'll just take fruit and crackers or veggie Scrolls.
I always get DD to help pack up toys before we leave.
Our play dates usually go for 3+ hours.

I don't do play dates as such... More like 'mummy downtime' with friends, and it's always in the mid-late afternoon and we don't bring snacks we bring wine, and drink it whoever is hosting provides cheese and crackers etc.
We sit outside, kids play outside so no cleaning up required!

I'm afraid a couple of playdates at my place have been very messy too..so now I am going to limit the playdates to 1-2 families at a time. The last playdate I kept the kids playing outside..is that rude?

Bringing food - varies. Usually a few people in my playdate group bring food, AND the host always provides too. Sometimes that can lead to food overload, so usually it works out that the host does it, and then one or two of us do, and the others don't. If I haven't brought any in a while then I will do. Nothing formal - and it works for our group.
Clearing up - yes, always offer to help. Sometimes the host declines though.
Time - varies. Anything from 1hr to 3hrs+. It depends on how good a time we're all having/ how many rounds of coffee.
