They cater for children and have a child's menu but personally I would says if your children are under 5 or unable to sit still you may cause other guest some dis comfort . But it is s lovely place set in a lovely location.

No dress code but they would frown on dirty overalls but would still serve you.Arriving without clothes would also be frowned upon.
