Families in The Regent

Our license is granted by the City Of Edinburgh Council (CEC). Unfortunately, children under 5 years old are not permitted in the pub at any time. However, we are happy to say that up until 8pm we are able to welcome young persons (aged 5-17 years) who are accompanied by a responsible adult. They are invited to sit in the “designated area”, which is our bright and cheery back room.

CEC grants different licenses to different pubs and bars. Some do allow children of any age (including babies), but others, like The Regent’s, do not allow anyone under 5 years old. Some do not allow anyone under 18 years at any time! These conditions are imposed by CEC and cannot be waived by the individual venue.

If you have a young family, it is a good idea to check ahead before arriving at any pub or bar. Bear in mind that most licensed premises are not permitted to allow Under-18’s after 8pm, though some restaurants are allowed to cater for families beyond this time. We hope to welcome you soon.
