Yesterday we attended the launch of the brand new play area at Brewers Fayre Old Brickworks which is in Drighlington near Bradford. This is actually the closest Brewers Fayre pub to where we live but I had never visited before. I had told the boys that we were going to try out a new play area and they were really excited.
The distinctive building was easy to spot from the road and there is ample car parking. We were greeted by friendly staff, the boys were given wristbands to allow them into the play are (usual price is £3 for 90 minutes of play) and we were shown to our table in the main pub and our drinks were quickly brought over to us.
We left our bag and drinks at the table went through to the play area which is accessed via some double doors and straight away the boys were drawn to the play frame. It is really bright and clean, with a Beano theme throughout. There was a face painter, craft area and even a balloon modeller so everyone was kept busy. The staff in this area were again really friendly and approachable and genuinely looked happy to be there. The boys even got to meet Dennis and Gnasher and Alex fell a little a little bit in love, he kept stroking the dog and got excited every time they came near.
We were told that we could eat in the play area if preferred, there were plenty of tables in there and i spotted a big stack of high chairs too but we opted to eat in the main pub instead where it was a bit quieter! I like that you can eat in either part so you can either keep an eye on the kids playing or sit as a family in a calmer area. There were Beano Activity Comics and crayons for the children to keep them busy at the table too.
Our food came and I couldn’t fault it. I had Smothered Chicken, Phil opted for Brewers Fayre burger(both on the 2 for £10 menu) and both boys had a Big Bad Dog meal. It was all nice and hot and I loved how the children’s meals were presented In a basket lined with Beano paper, Again the staff were lovely, checking if we needed anything and making sure we were happy with the food.
We will definately be heading down to the Old Brickworks again soon for an afternoon of play and food. A big thank you to the staff for making us feel so welcome.
