Forget about the loss of appetite – the management of a Mediterranean restaurant in the UK wouldn’t be afraid to risk losing a small business in exchange for keeping the ‘screaming children’ and their families out of the establishment in order to maintain a peaceful atmosphere.
Earlier this week, a tourist visiting Llandudno, North Wales, was shocked to find the strict rules printed on the Mediterranean restaurant’s menu, according to The Sun.
According to an image shared on Facebook by customer Helen Hyland and obtained by the store, the tough rules for young diners were pretty specific.

“Children should be seated at all times[s], not allowed to run into the restaurant, ”the note began, as the restaurant can be a“ very dangerous place ”with staff wearing hot plates.
“We will not be held responsible for your children if they are injured in the restaurant because they are not taken care of,” he continued. “Children are the sole responsibility of their guardian when they are in our restaurant. “
Stating that children must be accompanied to the toilet – and that children under 8 will be served with melamine plates and bowls, because the establishment’s porcelain plates are “served hot” – the restaurant management specifies that while they “love kids in restaurants,” children who “cry or scream” can create a tense and stressful atmosphere for other diners.
“Customers don’t come and listen to screaming kids, we ask in the most polite way [sic] Possible way, please, if your child is crying / screaming take them out of the restaurant until they have calmed down, ”the memo continued. “I don’t really want to upset anyone, but we’ve had complaints in the past. You have to understand that people don’t come out to listen to crying / screaming children. “
“Unfortunately, if a child cannot be prevented from disturbing other diners, we will unfortunately have to ask you to leave the restaurant, which we would really hate to do,” concludes the notice. “I know that would offend and we would hate that too!” “

Hyland, a 52-year-old Scottish tourist, said the slightly outlandish rules showed “they clearly have a different take on things there,” according to The Sun.
Representatives for the restaurant did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment on the story.
Meanwhile, it wouldn’t be the first time a restaurant has made headlines in recent months for its less-than-kid edicts.
