Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

OK, thanks. It looks like children are not accepted, as there is no children dishes on the menu. I'll try to check, but chances are that I'll come alone (although we may be in the area, so we could always chance it).

Ah sorry about that, Cyrille, I did not check that.

If it turns out they can make kid-friendly dishes, can you let us know, in case others have the same question?

Planning to be there, but may be quite late...

Sounds good.  I'll arrive a little later than I had planned, closer to 2:30~3, so I may stay a little later as well.

Hope to meet up!

The problem is not the kid-friendly dishes. The problem is that British pubs are off-limits to minors except if they have a designated "family" area, and the more "authentic" pubs don't.

It's also a question of space. It should be a separate room with access to the street and facilities without going through designated drinking areas.

Most pubs are too small or open plan, both of which stop that right off.

some pubs get around it by designating themselves a restaurant before 5:00 but I think it's hard

Yeah, because children must not only not be served alcohol, but they must not be in the same room where alcohol is consumed. Or something.

Like I said, pubs are normally off-limits to minors.

Well, they are allowed in the dining room.

Of course, that may not be where you'd like to be. And I don't know for sure whether they will be with me, but maybe if they are we could start in the dining room, they wouldn't stay for the whole afternoon anyway (I too may not actually, my parents will arrive later on Friday and it would be only fair to help a little in preparing our place).

Thanks for checking this, Cyrille, and sorry for any inconvenience.

Also, I just realized that I won't be there until at least 2:30, maybe closer to 3:00.

Hope to cross times with you for at least a bit!
