I live abroad and will be back in Cardiff for an unplanned visit in a few weeks. Whilst there it will be my sons first birthday so we've decided to have a small family party for him, mostly adults and a few older children. I've not lived in Cardiff for a few years and I don't know what to do or where to go.
I don't feel a play centre party is necessary but ideally a restaurant or a pub that offers a children's play area would be good. I saw Juniors advertised as a restaurant and play area but this seems to have changed and I can't access their website or work out what exactly they are offering. I've found a few Charlie Chalk type places but they have generic websites and if seem difficult to work out what exactly each location has to offer. I would love some true mummy advice and any inspiration. There will be around 24 of us of that about 8 will be children.
The Ship in Barry is nice for food and has a big children's play area although not sure if your 1 year old would go in by himself. Cedar Tree does great food but the play area is a bit crap (mainly machines that you need to pay for so will add up with a few kids).
