Had a lovely time sat outside in the sun, the park is ideal for the children. Unfortunately when I went inside with my children 6months and 3year old the reception was slightly different! My 3year old loves music so I’d told her when the band came on we could go inside to listen for 30 mins before going home. The landlord told me the pushchair would be in the way, I made it so it wasn’t he then told me I’d be better going outside! He was so rude sat on a chair tutting at me! If my daughter wasn’t so excited to dance I’d have left then! When the band came on she was so happy and went on the dance floor she wasn’t in anyone else’s way as no one else was anywhere near the dance floor infact she was making others smile and numerous people told me how lovely she was. After a few minutes the landlord came over to me again and asked me to get her away from the dance floor she needed to be with me at the table! That was the final straw unfortunately we had to cut the 30 mins short I’d promised her!
Quite clearly if you don’t want children in there don’t say they are allowed until 8pm as this was unacceptable behaviour on your part. My children are very well behaved and didn’t deserve that treatment and neither did I.
