This ones for the kids!

Trying to keep the kids entertained can test even the very best of us. It’s 5 o’clock on a Saturday afternoon and the kids driving you mad? That’s where the Sydney Junction Hotel comes in.

Pubs in Newcastle are shaking things up, and putting a real focus on building businesses and environments where parents can bring the kids along and keep them entertained. Gone are the days when the pub was only for the blokes to come have a punt on a Saturday afternoon, the whole dynamic of pubs has been shifted and being family friendly is a huge priority many establishments face when designing their menu, layout, events and facilities.

This niche market is after quick and affordable children’s meals, a safe and friendly environment with play areas for the kids while parents can sit back and enjoy a meal and glass of wine with friends. Kick back in the beer garden while somebody else cleans up the mess, somebody else cooks the food and really all you need to do it turn up!

Since taking over the hotel Clare and Campbell Rodgers with 3 young children of their own knew what families were looking for in casual dining experiences. The playground is undercover with climbing frames, slides, shape structures and closed off with a soft cushioned floor. Spacious, bright and colorful the playground is sure to catch your eye as quickly as it does your kids.

Another big tick is affordability and quality. With $5 kids meals Monday to Thursday with any main meal purchased you can beat that value for money. The kidzone is the perfect space to let the kids run wild for hours and our kids meal are just the right size to recharge their batteries.
