Parents find brilliant way to take heartbroken kids to a 'restaurant' in lockdown

Trying to explain to your kids why they're not allowed out of the house during lockdown may be challenging - especially when they're young.

Callum and Clare-Marie Macaulay were in this predicament when their sons asked to go to a restaurant, and they had to try and explain that they couldn't.

So instead, they had the genius idea to bring the restaurant to their boys.

The couple transformed their kitchen and dining room into a restaurant, with Clare-Marie as the waitress and Callum as the chef.

In a video posted to Callum's Facebook he said: "So during this pandemic, Evan and Lucas wanted to go to a restaurant, they don’t quite understand why they can’t - so, the rest is history.

"I think Clare-Marie Macaulay and I are officially losing the plot."

The video starts with Evan and Lucas walking down their front garden path, before Clare-Marie welcomes them into their makeshift restaurant.

Clare-Marie checks their booking, ticks them off the list and invites them inside.

She then introduces the 'guests' to the head chef, Callum and proceeds to take their orders.

The boys are served their soft drinks alongside a glass of apple and blackcurrant 'wine' from the Robinsons reserve.

To start the boys chow down on nachos, served by the head chef, which they seemed to enjoy, stating it was "very good" and "the best."

For their main course, they have Quesadillas alongside a 'special Heinz salsa' which was code for ketchup, Callum joked.

Last on the menu is a strawberry ice lolly and mint choc chip and vanilla ice cream.

Their evening ends with Claire-Marie bringing them the bill before scrunching it up because "dinner is on mum and dad."

The post has received two million views, over 50,000 shares and tens of thousands of comments.

One person said: "Priceless. What a wonderful idea".

Another agreed: "Callum and Clare-Marie, what a beautiful idea, so perfectly executed!!!"

And a third said: "I could watch this over and over...what amazing parents and adorable little boys".

A fourth then joked: "Is this restaurant open to the public? Absolutely loved this!"
