5 Family Pubs with Indoor Play Areas

Heading out for a family meal with little ones in tow can sometimes take a lot of forward planning, and it can be tricky to find a place that the kids will love just as much as the adults. Also, maybe it's just me but I tend to have to arrive fully equipped with iPads, colouring books, pens...anything to keep my little one occupied.

The Barley Farm, Eccles

So wouldn't it be perfect to be able to enjoy some tasty food together but also give your kids the opportunity to wear themselves out in an onsite play area?

Here are 5 brilliant family pubs in Manchester that also have indoor play areas:

1. The Coach House, Trafford Centre
Tucked away next to the Premier Inn at Manchester's Trafford Centre, The Coach House serves up homely traditional "pub grub" in a family friendly setting. And the best bit? The awesome Dennis the Menace themed indoor play area, jam packed with soft play apparatus including a toddler only area, tree house climbing zone, ball pit and slides. The area is fully supervised and is open 7 days per week (check website for opening times.)

Check out further details such as menus and opening times on The Coach House website.

2. The Barlow Croft, East Didsbury
The Barlow Croft is a newly refurbished eatery at the popular Parrs Wood entertainment centre. As well as providing customers with a welcoming atmosphere and great value meals, the pub is also home to it's very own Wacky Warehouse! That's right, wavy slides, ball pits and soft play galore, the kids will be begging you to visit The Barlow Croft over and over again. Even better? If you spend more than £10 on meals from Monday-Friday, kids can go nuts for FREE!

3. Mersey Farm, Sale
Another popular Brewers Fayre pub, Mersey Farm is also home to a fully supervised Dennis themed play area. Whilst kids go crazy in the ball pit, parents can chow down on traditional and tasty pub classics, and at a great price too.
