    Well it could have been a footy club or an RSL or one of those restaurants that are like a club but really a restaurant.

    My response depends on what type of club because some are very kid friendly / focused whereas others are more for parents ITKWIM

    I dare say my 5 and 7 year olds have quickly ducked off to the toilet with no shoes.

    Maybe in the men's where there's more chance of urine being in the floor...

    Seriously, it's gross but not something that consumes my thoughts.

    We generally make our kids leave their shoes on when we eat out unless we're at the beach. I think it's good manners and safer. My kids hate wearing shoes but it's just a rule.

    I haven't eaten anywhere with a play centre in it for years so haven't any thoughts about it.

    But what other people's kids do? Doubt I'd even notice to be honest.

    If I'm at a restaurant, of course my kids have their shoes on, but if they've been in the playground and our tables are right next to the play area, I don't really care.

    But the club I go to is a "beachy" club on the coast where my mum and dad live. Thongs are acceptable foot wear there. I usually only go to this club when I'm visiting my mum and dad who live 1.5 hour drive away. We go there so the kids can run around after being stuck in the car for ages and so they've used up some energy when I drive home.

    See I would be more concerned about taking DS at his age (5) to a club with poker machines and having him in that kind of environment than worrying about him being barefoot in a loo?

    That's why I asked for a bit more clarification. We too only go to kid friendly places right beside the beach where we're pretty much eating outdoors.

    It's just easier because my kids hate wearing shoes and I'm usually not up for the fight when I just want a night off from cooking.

    No I have a bit of a thing about public toilets and shoes on and would rather carry my kids (inc my 5yo) into the loo, sit them on, wait and carry them out.

    Certainly wouldn't say anything to another parent or child, my issue not theirs.

    We are a mostly a shoes off family.
    I would not have cared. I would have laughed and say ok, if you came over to tell me.
