A COUPLE are baffled as to why their three-year-old child did not enjoy a trip to the pub.
Tom and Emma Logan’s son Jasper spent his time at the Grey Wolf pub in Macclesfield looking bored or howling tearfully, despite its recent refurbishment and excellent range of beers.
Marketing manager Tom said: “I don’t understand what Jasper’s problem is. Maybe for some reason he wasn’t enjoying his orange squash as much as I enjoyed those pints of Czech lager.
“It can’t be the conversation, because Emma and I swapped funny work stories, and our divorced friend Jeff came over and really made us laugh with his latest internet dating disaster.
“Unfortunately Jasper was determined not to enjoy himself, even though we allowed him to explore the interesting space underneath the table.
All attempts to interest Jasper in child-friendly pub activities like playing on the quiz machine or reading The Observer failed, and getting him to use a “magic” Dyson hand dryer in the toilets merely resulted in screams of terror.
Emma Bradford said: “People were actually giving us dirty looks. But if an infant doesn’t belong in the pub, where do they belong?”
