we're holidaying soon in Coffs Harbour.  I am on the lookout for a family friendly restaurant or pub as we would like to eat out at least once while we are there.  Our kids are 5.5 and 4.

Any recommendations??

My girls and I always go to the Green House Tavern at some point when we are in Coffs.
nice food, family friendly and right near the cinema etc

There is a Hogs Breath there which is family friendly. There is also a strip of restaurants on the same street (not sure of name but down near the beaches) that have outdoor dining which is good for kids but beside a busy (ish) road. We went there a few weeks ago and had Thai early before it got too busy and sat outside.

The plantation hotel caters for kids, we stopped in Coffs overnight last November and we were told to eat ther. The food was good and reasonably priced with a kids playroom and, from memory, a decent kids menu. At least it was good when compared to some of the other kids mens we'd seen in the week before that!

The Yacht Club is family friendly and the food is very good.

The Seaview Tavern in Woolgoolga is nice, a nice feed, usually a local band on the weekends and there is a playroom type thing and a grassed area in the court yard for the kids to run amok.
Coramba Tavern also has a big grassed area out the back of the court yard and their pizzas are yum.
They have a play room, I think with child minding, at the Coffs Ex Services club, I have eaten there a few times and the food is quite nice, much better than typical RSL food.
The Planto is quite popular, I haven't eaten there but whenever we have gone there for drinks the dining area has always been busy, lots of kids running around.
They have put in a few new restaurants in the city centre area, on the southern side of the Palm Centre, they look flash enough driving past so maybe worth a look see.
