WELLINGTON: Here at The Cross in Wellington we’re a family restaurant bar and all about family fun!
 
We know how tricky it can be to get out and about with the kids and to keep them entertained, so we’ve pulled out all the stops to make sure the whole family enjoys the experience.
 
Rock in anytime with the kids – while mum and dad chill with a coffee, we have toys, games and colouring activities on hand to keep the nippers amused.
 
Our kids menu is available anytime, so no need to worry about rumbling tummies, and we're happy to shout the little ones their fluffies too. 
 
We have baby change facilities (in both the women’s and men’s bathrooms), plus plenty of space to park up your pram.

Family fun activities for you all to enjoy

 
Weekend Mornings – Free Facepainting
 
We love brunch as much as any good Wellingtonion – it’s one of our favourite times of the week!
 
Every Saturday and Sunday from 10am-2pm, our place is the perfect spot to bring your family and friends for a bite to eat.
 
We’ve got the kids covered - our kids table is set up with free facepainting and colouring!
 
There are always toys and board games, and of course we have our great kids menu to keep the little ones happy while you sit back with a yummy meal, coffee or glass of wine. 
 
If you’re keen to come in for some kai and kids activities on the weekend, we recommend you give us a bell first to book a table.
 
Fortnightly Kids Theatre, Puppet Show & Workshop
 
We've teamed up with KidzStuff theatre and Playshop Theatre to bring you fortnightly theatre productions for the little ones, the second and fourth Saturday of every month in our guest room.
 
On the second Saturday of the month, Wellington's theatre extraordinaires, Playshop, host their Interactive Kids Theatre, where the actors and kids recreate classic fairy tales, using dress ups, props and creative minds!
 
The fourth Saturday of every month we'll host a puppet show and workshop with our friend Fingal. She and her puppet friends have an exciting tale to tell, and their show will be followed by a puppet making workshop - just bring a sock and you could be leaving with a new puppet friend! There may even be another show after the workshop too, fingers crossed....
 
As per all our activities at The Cross, the shows are free, so come one come all, bring a friend or three and enjoy some fun theatre and stories. Shows start at 11am in our Guest Room so make sure you're in nice and early to secure a good spot.
 
Cross Critters Coffee Group – Free Massages
 
Pop in on Tuesday or Thursday morning and we have a little something special for you. We dedicate our lovely Guest Room to parents and little ones. This is the perfect space – a large enclosed area with comfy couches and carpet to crawl around on! We also have one of our wonderful staff members on hand – who’ll help to keep your wee one happy while you kick back with a coffee and relax.
 
During these Cross Critter mornings, between 10am-12pm we have a professional massage therapist, offering up some relief for all of you hard-working parents. Enjoy a FREE 10 minute back, neck and shoulder massage while our lovely staff member takes your baby off your hands… heaven!
