After seeing on Facebook that Mustang Sally’s American Diner in Castletown had added a play area for children, I was very excited to see what it was like.
ACCESS AND FACILITIES
Access into the diner is good with no steps, making it easy for bringing in prams. I saw at least three wooden highchairs with straps and a tray. Within the accessible toilet is a drop down changing table with lots of room.
FOOD AND DRINK
The menu is quite large with things like omelettes (£5-7), chicken wings, ribs, burgers (£8-9) and hot dogs (£6-8). They also have jacket potatoes, salads and vegetarian and vegan options too. The children’s menu consists of either a burger, hot dog, mac & cheese, chicken bites or jacket potato for £5 (all meals include fries, peas and a Fruit Shoot). Or if there is something on the adult menu your little one likes, you can order a half portion for half the price. The food is served in plastic baskets so there’s no need to worry about broken plates!
PLAY AREAS & ACTIVITIES
Now on to the fun part…the play areas. There is an area for older children with an Xbox and a pool table. Within the main part of the restaurant is a small area for babies and a ‘colour zone’ with colouring books, colouring pencils, chalkboards and chalk and a connect-4 game. In a separate room is the play area with a ball pit, small slide, play-house, ride-on toys, pop-up tents and a table and chairs.
I was really impressed with the amount of effort that has been put into making Mustang Sally’s American Diner family-friendly and their motto, ‘where family comes first’, seems to be very true.
