Single dad and little daughter out for Valentine's Day receive heart-warming note from couple

A father who took his young daughter out for a Valentine's Day meal was left touched when two strangers left him a heart-warming note.

Over the weekend, the single dad took his six-year-old for dinner at a branch of The Old Spaghetti Factory. Unbeknownst to him and his daughter, a couple seated nearby had taken notice of their daddy-daughter day out and decided to pay for their meal.

In their note, they explained that they had both grown up without fathers and when they saw him and his 'little date', they were "so impressed with what a great dad" he was.

The man posted a photo of the note to Imgur with the heading "I wish I could thank them".

"As a single dad, I took my six year old daughter out to valentines dinner tonight when this happened," he commented under the image.

"I wont lie, I teared up at the table. So, thank you random strangers. Thank you."

Here's the text of the note in full:

Hi there!

Sorry to spy, but my husband and I saw you out with your little date and were so impressed with what a great Dad you are.

From two adults who grew up without dads, it’s so important to have a male role model at a young age.

Keep up the good work Dad!

Dinner is on us!
