it's not like the owner banned children, just prams on busy weekends.
yes, it does seem harsh but if you actually think about the logistics and ohs issues, it makes sense.
i have run restaurants all my life and have 2 kids.
some prams ARE as big as SUV's...and some parents let their kids run around the restaurant. i've actually worked in a cafe where if you had children, the owner insisted on seating them outside. and she refused to purchase highchairs.
(i thought that was quite unreasonable!)
as pp says, you can get a highchair, sling, put baby on your lap or choose to eat elsewhere. the readers posts below the article are ridiculous but let's be honest, not everyone likes kids.
what about hotels with a no-child policy?
