The Prince of Wales in Highgate Village has today announced it has teamed up with The Kids’ Table to launch a free service offering supervised fun for kids aged 3 – 10 years old during Saturday afternoons.
The new concept is designed to allow parents to enjoy some adult time over drinks and food while their kids are entertained by a creative team of DBS checked child-carers who will offer face painting, craft activities with a different theme each week, Lego building, friendship bracelet making, drawing, games and more.
The Kids’ Table founder, Sarah Frow said:
“As a mother of two, I struggled to find decent family friendly pubs and restaurants that offered an equally enjoyable experience for both adults and kids. The places where my friends and I want to while away a Saturday or Sunday afternoon offer little to keep the children entertained. We were forever having to cut our social time short because the little ones were bored and wanted to get up and play, or we would put the tablet in front of them to keep them amused. The Kids’ Table means that parents can enjoy the adult environments they want to hang out in during their precious spare time, while the kids have a ball – everyone’s happy!”
The Kids’ Table researched 200 parents in London and found that 81% avoid going to the pub as a family because it’s too much hassle entertaining the kids, while 79% said there weren’t enough pubs nearby offering an equally enjoyable experience for parents and their children.
The Kids’ Table will be available free of charge to children of customers at The Prince of Wales Highgate on a first come, first serve basis from Saturday 25th May (just in time for half-term), every Saturday between 12pm – 4pm.
