Kids in Pubs

We will be traveling with a 14 and 15 year old and cannot recall whether kids are allowed in pubs. We enjoy pub lunches and an occasional brew after dinner and wonder if the girls will be welcome during the day and evening hours.

Thanks!

I would say that most establishemnts allow kids of that age in at most times of the day. If you have somewhere specific in mind it would be best to check beforehand to avoid dissapointment.

In general, yes especially if you are eating. Many pubs will have a cut off time, typically 8pm or so, after which no kids applies. But its all very individual so you'll have to ask, but almost no pubs that serve food (as opposed to a few bags of crisps or similar) would have a no kids policy at lunchtime or early evening.

p.s. This is for England and Wales, I believe in N Ireland and Scotland things might be a little stricter but that's not from personal experience, but posts here.

Oh, okay, we will be in both England and Scotland. So a stop for lunch or early dinner sounds like it will be no problem. Thanks !

In Scotland they'll only be allowed into pubs that have a childrens licence. Many have so don't worry about not finding anywhere. They will only be allowed to be there if having a meal and will need to be out by 7.30 or 8 - can't remember exact time

Great! There are so many charming pubs in Edinburgh and elsewhere that we will be sure to find a place for the kids. Thanks.
