We find it really difficult to go out for a nice meal when we have the children with us. They don’t much like eating and it is hard (and a little bit unfair) to make them sit still through a meal. We usually choose somewhere with a play area so that they can have a run around and we can enjoy a bit of our meal in peace!
Last weekend we were invited to the opening of the new soft play area in Brewers Fayre in Aberdare. Hands down it is the best soft play area in a restaurant I have ever seen. There was a soft play frame which catered for all ages – my 8 year old, 4 year old and 1 year old all had somewhere suitable and safe to play and they had a brilliant time!
Not only that but there is also a big room with tables for colouring and a TV playing Beano cartoons. It was absolutely brilliant and there were also tables in that area so that you could keep a close eye on the kids if you wanted to.
The food is typical pub grub but the kids menu is great and the children particularly liked the desserts.
We had a fab time and although Aberdare is a little further from home than we would usually travel for a meal, the soft play area was so good that we would consider making the trip! Now that is a recommendation indeed!
Disclosure – we were invited to the VIP launch and provided with a family meal for the purposes of this review. All opinions are honest and my own.
