Family Friendly Pubs


Long gone are the days when children weren’t welcome in a pub – in fact, now they’re positively embraced with open arms. Family friendly pubs with rooms have arrived, and with them tasty, nutritious kids’ menus, fun activities, buggy space and even pubs with play areas and tree houses.

Child Friendly Pubs

A sanctuary for families – what better way to spend a long, lazy afternoon than in a pub garden, as children run free and you enjoy a pint of the very finest local craft beer. Or maybe you fancy a rural ramble with the kids; exploring wooden bridges and stepping stones over rippling rivers, hiking up hills or cycling through pretty countryside before returning for a sumptuous meal at the pub. And no need to worry about what the kids will eat – these glossy boutique-inns-with-beer have already thought of it. Think delicious homemade fish fingers, sticky honey drumsticks and baby bangers, followed by a host of yummy desserts of course, while adults can enjoy succulent pies made from locally-sourced meat, seasonal vegetables and fresh seafood suppers. Child friendly pubs have come a long way…

Visiting in the middle of winter? Sink down into a snug all-embracing leather sofa next to a roaring fire while the kids play a game of pool or complete the pub’s own child friendly activity sheets.

Of course, savvy guests will be thinking about the surrounding area too – beaches for the kids, wide open countryside, museums, castles, cities and amusement parks – ready to inspire young minds. All before you retreat to a charming pub with play area and watch the children let off steam climbing up ropes, whizzing down slides and gleefully pushing each other on swings.

Add in the laid-back atmosphere of a local public house, the friendly staff, quirky design and the ease of sloping off upstairs from some serious slumber after a mouthwatering seasonal supper and you’ll see some shining examples of why family friendly pubs are now serious contenders when booking that much needed break away.
