I am writing my review to compliment an excellent chef and a manager who is trying hard to create a fine dining experience.
The venue clearly states it has a policy of welcoming children of an age happy to sit quietly at table throughout their stay. We went several months ago with our family. as our grandson is only 2 years old when we were told politely but firmly of their policy we decided to go on this occasion to the pub nearby and to come back for an adult celebration at a future date.
we returned for a quiet lunch yesterday and our food was excellent but our visit was ruined by a group who had brought 5 small children. Why do some parents feel it is their right to inflict their toddlers on others? Children running around on wooden floors, fingering decorations and howling are all expected in Pizza Express.
Their are two sides to many reviews and we were witnesses to one mother swearing at the manager for trying to stop children running around. A fine dining restaurant should not be criticised for not welcoming children just because it doesn't encourage running around. Parents who bring children of this age to this type of venue are inconsiderate and spoil the experience for those with well behaved older children.
