After all that running around....leave room for a yummy dessert.
The prospect of a tantrum erupting over an uninspiring plate of food is enough to terrify any parent. Add to that scenario, cramped eating quarters, staff with a dislike of children, lack of highchairs and no suitable baby-changing facilities and your dining experiences could well turn into a nightmare.
Thankfully, Yorkshire doesn't have that problem. There are restaurants an cafes that taken the time and effort to consider a parents needs and have successfully combined great 'grown-up' food, with well thought out facilities and refreshing kids menus.
