Families are welcome in the majority of our pubs, except for just a few pubs which do not hold the necessary licensing permission.
As you will appreciate, it’s a very difficult area, as we have responsibilities to look after the best interests of all of our customers.
Children under 16 years of age are permitted in our pubs, if accompanied by a person aged 18 years or over. If any adult aged 18 years or over, in a family group, wishes to consume alcohol, then we request that all members of the party order a main meal (with the exception of babies and toddlers).
Unaccompanied young people, aged 16–17 years, are welcome to order and consume food and non-alcoholic drinks only.
There may be times when the serving of alcohol is limited or refused to whole groups which include customers under the age of 18.
Entry times for under-18s can differ from pub to pub, so we always suggest that you contact the pub which you wish to visit – to confirm these times.
