My place does not include children on the license, and I would be most surprised if anyone had a Smiffy pub that included children in the license particulars.
Some years ago, some conditions of a children's license being offered was as follows:'
There must be baby changing facilities, a room without a sales point for alcohol, a closed door dividing the children's room from the bar areas. Child friendly loos.
These mentioned items cost money, and you know how Smiffy is with his money. It is much cheaper to exclude children, and let's be honest, the majority of people have organised a babysitter so that they can be out enjoying themselves. Thus they do not appreciate other peoples kids in pubs. I may be old fashioned, but inside a drinking pub is not the enviroment for young kids. They should be out in the garden full stop.
