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

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