Child Friendly Resturants Cardiff

If you have a small brood that follows you wherever you go, it's difficult to find the right place to go when eating out. Will they like the food? Will there be a couple of crayons to keep them occupied? Will we disturb the other diners? All of these questions are standard when it comes to searching for a child friendly restaurant. Luckily, there are plenty of child friendly restaurants in Cardiff and we're going to take a look at some of the best today.

So because we're so fond of our home and the rainy weather, we've put together a list of the best places to go on a rainy day.
