There is a huge flaw in that plan...it makes sense.
the flaw in that plan is?????

Maybe the their target market are under age to be in a pub?
Hi there.

If FOOD is being served kids can go into a pub in the UK - but only in the "designated" (????) food area. - Can't see why the UK is so anti-kid -- we were presumably all one at some stage of our lives --in fact as I get older I'm probably behaving more like one every day again !!!.

Kids are allowed in bars in continental Europe without any seemingly adverse effects -- even pubs where loads of typical workmen using quite colourful language are drinking. -- The "Do gooders" are the people who cause the problem not the workmen or the drinkers.

When I was small I often was taken to very basic "Workmens" type Bars-- don't think it did me any harm --maybe the opposite -- I learnt a lot more useful things in those places than I ever did at any type of School or educational establishment !!!!.


Cheers
jimbo

You stick to your continental pubs Jimbo, when I go for a pint I don't want to be surrounded by screaming kids.

Such as the proper way to use cuss words? Here in the US kids are allowed in pubs/bars/ restaurants that serve alcohol but must sit in designated "family" areas.

" I rest my case M'lud"

Actually the fact they are allowed in doesn't mean that they are in every bar either - far from it - parents seem to exercise plenty of responsibility and in a lot of bars you can have a nice "Kid-less" drink too - and the kids are usually gone anyway by around 16:00 -- continental schools give kids much more homework to do than typical UK schools - and ensure it's done too. !!!!!!


(For example Delirium Bar central Brussels -- massive number of Ales on sale -- rarely if ever do you see "kids" in there - Students maybe - and it only closes when the last customer is exhausted !!!!! - in spite of the "advertised times").

Accueil - Delirium Café


maybe see you in there !!!!!.

Cheers

I suppose it depends on your definition of kid. From what I remember from my days as a barman (admittedly this was about 5 years ago now) the rules are basically:

A child can go into a pub at any age as long as they are supervised by parents and in the restaurant area ("family friendly" - ie not in the main bar area)
Anyone under 16 is not allowed at the actual bar (where you order drinks), although in practice I used to allow kids at the bar as long as their parents were there and they moved off once ordering was finished.
A child over 14 is allowed in the main bar area, if supervised by parents.
A child over 16 is allowed in unsupervised, but is not allowed to sit/stand at the bar unless ordering.

As an interesting aside.. a child of any age (I believe... although it may be over 14) is allowed to drink as much as they like, as long as they are eating a full sit down meal, but the drink must be taken away when the meal is done. (Although every barman I ever met would let them finish their drink).

Certainly not my fat digits! That's why they had to go to the big, clunky tiles.

Exactly, who wants kids crawling between their legs. Reminds me this story:

Kids were making terror in a 747 flying over the Atlantic. They were running around the isles screaming and yelling. A gentleman got up and said he was a teacher and could deal with the situation. He called the kids to the back of the plane and 5 minutes later there was total silence. People asked him how he managed to pacify these wild kids. Easy, he said - I opend the backdoor and asked them to go play in the courtyard.
