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?!
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 and keep children supervised at all times - this includes the garden area. Kids (or adults for that matter!) running amok, climbing on tables and playing Hide & Seek in the loos (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 (particularly applies when bar chat turns to Brexit, Lunar Landings, when Sweet Caroline is sang on the Karaoke plus a myriad of other scenarios!).
Under 16s are not permitted to sit at the bar, nor able to play on the pool table or play darts board, - apologies if this doesn't suit, but we've needed to make these conditions because of previous bad (and costly!) experiences.
CHILD 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 - we may be a public house, but we are also a private home x
