Wooden it be nice to find a pub that your kids will love? Come on inn

Sunday Mail (UK) - - Mailbox -

To par­ents, the Out­side Inn is a cheap and cheer­ful pub where you can grab a quick bite of lunch or din­ner. But to kids, it is so much more than that – it’s par­adise.

The pub, tucked away in Glen­bervie busi­ness park in Lar­bert, near Falkirk, does ex­actly what its name sug­gests – it brings the out­doors in­side.

You en­ter the restau­rant over a wooden bridge, which leads to a spa­cious eat­ing area sprin­kled with trees, wa­ter­falls, long grasses and out­door-style path­ways.

What k id would not be en­chanted at the thought of hav­ing an in­door pic­nic in such a fan­tasy world? Our two can’t get enough of the place and we of­ten give in.

They have a fab value- for­money kids’ menu and the mas­sive Fuzzy Ed’s wooden play area adds to its parental ap­peal as you end up with at least half an hour of peace. The food is tasty enough and the menu is ex­ten­sive, so you can al­ways f ind some­thing to tickle the taste­buds – whether it’s the Sun­day carvery or a quick snack off the Light Bites menu.

Their sig­na­ture sizzl ing skil­lets are a must-try and they do a great morn­ing fry-up if you are in search of a morn­ing-af­terthe-night-be­fore pick-me-up.

My hus­band is a big fan of seafood and his go- to dish is the Ul­ti­mate Catch, which is a ver­i­ta­ble smor­gas­bord of oceanic fare, whereas I pre­fer a nice steak with all the trim­mings.

The fam­ily pub/restau­rant is also a favourite with trav­el­ling busi­ness­men.

And it’s a great venue for kids’ par­ties and, with a spe­cial Golden Years menu on of­fer, it’s a haven for the over- 60s too.

Cor­don bleu it cer­tainly isn’t but, if you want a pub that de­liv­ers ex­actly what it says on the tin, head for the Out­side Inn – your bairns will think all their Christ­mases have come at once.
