Eating Out Doncaster

Restaurant Reviews

Eating out with kids can sometimes be something of a challenge (understatement of the year!) There are plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants in the Doncaster area which really do welcome children and families so I’ve compiled a list of them here.

These places are not all ‘exclusively’ for families or children but they have all shown thoughtful touches or great facilities (things like pushchair access, changing facilities, highchairs and so on)

At Doncaster Mumbler we are always looking to ‘spread the word’ if we find out about any little gems, so if you know of a pub, restaurant or café that should be included in this listing then please contact us here.

The Old School Inn Epworth

The Old School Inn, Epworth is a Country Pub crammed with heritage and sense of identity. A stones throw away from the main village the Old Victorian School has been recently converted into a pub and kitchen, with large secure garden and stacks of style.

As local farmers; we have striven to achieve a ‘home from home’ ambience where all our customers feel at ease, whether having bar snacks and drinks early doors in wellies or dressed up for a big night out at the weekend. We want to achieve an everyday atmosphere, effortless and easy.

Whether you are joining us for a drink or for food, all areas offer the relaxed ambience to take stock on life and relax.
