Going out for a meal with a toddler can be stressful.
With our wee lass now two, we often sacrifice quality for a bit of peace and head for eateries with accompanying soft play areas.
This was the case at our visit to Weavers Mill.
It was a nice night and we decided to take a short walk from our Dryburgh home along to Camperdown Leisure Park.
Stepping inside is a blast from the past. Previously named Outside Inn, the Weavers Mill still has the same features, including fake trees and a village squaretype setting.
Although quirky, it doesn’t really follow the theme of the current restaurant and makes the place look a bit dingy. That aside though, I reserved full judgment for the food.
Perusing the menu it had all the usual favourites and pub classics. All happy with our choices, I headed to the bar to place the order.
There was quite a queue with a number of tradesmen, presumably staying at the adjacent Premier Inn, placing individual orders adding to the wait.
That aside, I ordered my chicken fajitas and my partner’s messy Mexican chicken (£7.99).
My fajitas came in at a very reasonable £6.99 including a soft drink (or an alcoholic one for an extra £1).
It’s worth noting this offer is only available Mondays to Thursdays from 5pm.
With it being a school night we opted for the soft option so it was Diet Cokes to drink.
For the young one, it was a cheese and tomato pizza, with the kids’ deal including a drink and dessert (£4.99).
We didn’t have too long to wait – but long enough for our daughter to be fed up
