Hi all ,
I moved here in April and i have a 7 year old son and i would like to know if there are any kid friendly pubs with a garden and kids menu etc anywhere in SE1 .
I go to EV's deli by Southwark tube which is amazing and a green oasis but is there anywhere else i can go for a drink that wont be full of suits ( no offence meant )
I dont know anyone here and would like to find some friends locally .
A little further afield is the Three Stags on the corner of Lambeth and Kennington Road, near the War Museum, no garden but very good food and cool with children. Also the Grand Union on Brook Drive, has a roof terrace,(with free wifi) good food and children are welcome, I think as in most places until 21.00hrs.
The Glad on Lant Street hasn't got a garden but you can sit outside. The pia, mash and mushy peas menu is really good though the portions will be too big for one small kid. If you pass by, stick your head in and you should get a good idea if it's your sort of place.
If the weather is ok Bermondsey square is quite good if you have kids-there is the bar from the Cinema, the hotel and Del aziz and there is lots of room to run around which is what my son normally does.
A tad fortuitous clicking on this thread.
I now have a little list of places to avoid like the plague, thanks everyone.
Don't misunderstand me, I love children, but I'm a firm believer in time and place, and as far as I'm concerned a pub is no place for a kid, at least not at any time that I want to go in one.
