Hey, remember when your parents took you into a pub as a child and you felt lucky to get a glass of coke and a bag of crisps in return for sitting nicely and only using your "inside voice?" - what happened eh?!
Parents, we are not of the "run and be free Tarquin and Cherry-Blossom" mentality here. Pubs, by their very nature, are adult environments and as champions of the old-school pub our stance is very much that children in pubs remains a privilege, not a right.
If you do bring children into our pub we politely ask that you consider the enjoyment of our other customers by keeping them supervised and seated with you at all times - this includes the garden area. Kids (or adults for that matter!) running amok, climbing on tables, kicking footballs and playing hide & seek in the loos ad bar (yep, it happens, baffling!) will not be tolerated.
Please also be aware that there may be times when they hear things you rather they did not!
Under 18s are not permitted to sit or be sent to the bar and pool and darts cannot be played if aged 15 or under - apologies if this doesn't suit, but we've needed to make these conditions because of previous bad (and costly!) experiences!
CURFEW FOR ALL UNDER 16s: 10PM
Please note that we do not house high-chairs or have baby-changing facilities - our apologies for any inconvenience
Thank you for your kind respect in this regard.
THE PUB IS AN ADULT PLAYGROUND
WE TRY TO KEEP IT THAT WAY!
We received a negative review from somebody who saw this sign in our pub and found it "very offensive" and it made them "paranoid" throughout their visit - do not be that person... if this sign offends, it's a sign that you need to find somewhere less offensive!
