A newbie member here hoping for some help from what looks like a brilliant board !
Next Saturday I'm hoping to meet an old friend and her HB and kids. We need a venue with decent ( if possible ) vegetarian food and possibly indoor play near Sheffield ( towards the east side would be good as she is travelling from Scunthorpe ). My kids are 8 and 5 and hers are 7, 4 and 6 months.
Only just got in recently so will be back later. Trying to think. Not sure if you'd get decent food AND indoor play together???? Hmmm....I will have a thik, whilst sorting DD out - who is very late going to bed.
Bump tomorrow too as there are other Sheffield/Yorkshire MNetters - more maybe around during the week, using computers at work.
Ok Hula thanks very much.
I was using the term "decent" very losely when describing food possibilties . Anything vaguely veggie would be fine !
There must be some sort of Brewsters or whatever out Doncaster way ( yeah I know I said decent food .....) mustn't there ? Needs to be on a mainish road, easy to find/give directions to as well ( don't want much do I ??)
Will try to bump message before work tomorrow
Doncaster - if you come of the M18 at Junction 3 and head towards the Lakeside Outlet place. At the outlet roundabout go straight over and follow the road round and past the offices, the lake and the new houses/apartments. There is a family pub/restaurant there - The Cheswold, and it is a Brewsters actually! It has both indoor and outdoor play for childern, and a large restaurant. I haven't eaten there for ages TBH but it was fine - and it is easy to get to.

Sheffield - Brewsters just down from Meadowhall, opposite where the arena is. Come off M1, Junction 34 and head Meadowhall way. Continue down past the Retail park and onwards towards where the arena is. On the right hand side of the main road is a reasonable large Brewsters, which has indoor play.
Also round here is the Centertainment place right opposite the arena, which has loads of restaruants (american diner, pizza, etc.), cinema, ten pin bowling. And you will also pass a TGI Fridays on way from M1 towards Meadhall. In case Brewsters was busy, but these don't have indoor play.
Just to let you know....
Had a very successful meet up at The Cheswold. The kids loved the play area and, thanks to the computer systems crashing, they got an extra hour's play!!
The food was ok too, although not many veggie options for kids ( as usual )
What a weird place it's in !! ( the lake and apartments etc...looks like Eurodisney !!!)
Anyway thanks again for enabling me to set up this rendezvous with my friends
It is very new round there. At the far end is the Done (ice skating, swimming, sports complex) and opposite Asda and MacD. Also the conema and bowling, and restaurants. They've been there a while now. The rest is much newer - the lake, the apartments and houses. The retail park and offices are newer too. They are due to start a new sports complex too soon.
