Pub or crèche? You decide.

When did it become so acceptable for pubs to be play centres for children?

Yesterday evening in the late summer sun we decided to go for an evening drink and enjoy the warmth.  Little did we expect to find more than 25 children in the garden running riot and screaming at the top of their lungs.

Not the relaxing experience we were looking for.

I don't have children.  I don't have the desire to be a mother than some people do and I don't understand when it became OK to spend the afternoon drinking while your child runs around.

When did pubs become a substitute for the park? Or the playground?

When did parents relinquish responsibility for their child's behaviour because of the glass of wine in hand?

I wont lie, it really does spoil my evening in what I view as adult environment but also having worked in a pub I know that it will be making things very difficult for the staff.

Isn't it time that we reclaim the pubs?
