A Place To Eat

Eating out with kids is a doddle right!? Here I share some of the best places Yorkshire has to offer and bring you the ones that life that bit easier 

 

Stump Cross Caverns – Nr. Pateley Bridge, Harrogate

We spent NYE in a cave, a deep dark cave, on a bear hunt 🐻 (in the words of my toddler) We didn’t have any plans so decided to head to Stump Cross Caverns for the afternoon. I’d seen it recommended a few times and although it wasn’t somewhere I’d...

Our Place – Leeds

We are BIG fans of BOOMCHIKKABOOM events so when we heard they were opening their own venue Our Place we knew we had to visit. We had such a fun morning there at one of their pre-school workshop session. The workshop theme we attended was “We’re...

Joon – Boston Spa

Joon Boston Spa is somewhere that was on our list for a while and I'm so pleased we visited as it is lovely. I wondered if we’d fill a whole morning here but time flies when you are having fun! It’s a small craft and play cafe on the high street in Boston Spa. There’s...

Wendy House Cafe – Ripon

There's a new cafe in Ripon called Wendy House Child Friendly Cafe Ripon It opened in October 2018. As soon as we saw the rocking horse in the window we were excited to go in. As you go in the door there's a ramp entrance with plenty of space to park your buggy. They...

Dutch House Gardens & Cafe

Last week we finally ventured out to Dutch House Gardens & Café and it really surprised us. I’d heard it was famous for its Pancakes and Poffertjes and quite honestly that was enough of a reason for me to visit 🥞 What I didn’t realise was how...

Goose – Harrogate

If you’re looking for somewhere to meet, eat and play have you tried Goose - Harrogate yet? It is beautifully decorated. There’s an area for younger kids with ride on animals (I think they are called wheelybugs!) an area to explore with toys, climbing frame a slide...

Buttercups – Otley

This is Buttercups​ in Otley. We were a little nervous about going in half term but we arrived when it opened at 9:30 and it was never overly busy. I was impressed with this place. It is a soft play cafe and the layout means you can sit and have a hot drink whilst...
