What have I started? MM, I only askeda simple question and expected a simple answer. I must say, if I had got a response from someone in the street like yours, I might have called the police thinking you were on something. My original thread was simply that we had a pleasant walk along the river in the evening next to possibly the worlds most well known bridge and thought it would be nice to sit by the waterside and have a cup of coffee and soft drinks for the children. I didn't think it was an unreasonable suggestion. It was not a moan, just a point of view. I have visited wetherspoons on many ocasions and found them very pleasant and accessible for families. It was just on this occasion we fancied a change. Let's keep calm, and polite, please!

Children. Eurrrgh. Ban them from everywhere. They are all awful.

MM, does that mean that you were, and is probably the reason why they should bee?

Having just got back from a holiday in the alps with our two children, I can really identify with the original postings. London is very child unfriendly and it is not until you go abroad that you realise just how much this is so. How pleasent to be able to eat out with the kids in the early evening for a reasonable price (not just burgers or pizza )and feel that both you and your children are welcomed. Also there were loads of places to just have a coffee and enjoy a pleasent evening watching the sun go down.

We do not get many hot summer evenings so when we do, it would be so nice if there were more establishements where we could enjoy them with the family.

Germany too is more child-friendly and surprisingly, far more dog-friendly than the UK. Dogs are even welcomed in restaurants and bars. Their sensible logic is to exclude them only from the kitchen, but not the table area where people are eating. Makes family meals much nicer.
