Could have a row in Wetherspoons at midday
they wouldn't warm up my baby food (home cooked n put in I've cubes) and instead offered me a jar.
i kicked off.
maybe I should cancel my food in case they spit in it!!

That's stupid. When I've been in there before with baby food they have given me a jug of hot water to warm my food through in.

i didnt think they were allowed to warm it up? i know its daft but i think its to do with some sort of food safety standard or something, when i was in sainsburys the cafe wouldnt heat up baby food or milk, they would advise they could use hot water for the milk but they wouldnt do it themselves iyswim

What's the difference between warming up a jar and warming up my home food?

I kicked off in a café when J was little.
They wouldn't let me have a jug of hot water to warm his bottle, unless I stood at the counter to do it. It was a health and safety risk, to have hot water on the café floor apparently. I asked about the pots full of hot water for people to pour their tea and coffee, the woman was stumped...
I ordered a pot of tea, and used that to heat his bottle.

I don't care I'll feed my baby what I want to feed them, not be forced to feed what they sell. I'd understand if I was trying to fed Connagh a meal from home in a restaurant but a baby?!!

Is your issue that they wouldn't heat or that they gave you a jar? what did you do in the end? A pot of warm water would have done the trick so maybe ask for that next time or like AK a pot of water for tea.

My issue is that we had spend £30 in there....on food and drink I wasn't trying to swerve paying for food. They wouldn't give me hot water to use as opposed to microwaving it. I just feel that I should be able to feel my baby food wherever I am, be it home food or a jar. I cod understand it if I took a McDonald's in to the Wetherspoons but seriously....a couple of ice cubes of swede. I didn't care how it was warmed up just the "computer says no" attitude. Basically if you need to feed your child while your out don't go to Wetherspoons!!!

So what did you do?

Had a row, they then warmed it up in the microwave to shut me up!

That's my girl. What spoons was it out of interest? We were in The Flying Boat over the Summer and just as we ordered a drink the bar man asked if we were eating or not. I said no mate not today He replied in tat case they have to limit us to 2 drinks because we have a child with us! Bleeding cheek of it!

What that's even more disgusting than my experience today!!! The Wetherspoons is obviously discriminative of children!! I was in the Turnpike xx

After my Friends son got a job working in the Wetherspoons kitchen (and told me how the food is prepared), I refused to eat there.
It's only good for cheap drinks, but ours seems to be over run with OAPs...

Pah all these rubbish stories! That's why I rarely eat out, I'm scared of confrontation and worry about the kids making too much noise etc. You were very brave, well done for getting it sorted.

Btw I mean their treatment of you is rubbish, just in case that reads wrong, oops!
