Family Restaurants

We are able to visit our favourite restaurants once more and it’s great to have a menu in hand and order something a bit different from home cooking! We are real supporters of supporting local restaurants and cafes,  severely impacted after the pandemic.

Here is a selection of restaurants to choose from.

Best always to book these days and….Bon appetit!

It’s so easy these days to pick the right restaurant that suits your child’s age and maturity level. If your child is under 4, or is generally a shuffle bottom, it may be hard for your child to keep still for a long time. You probably want to choose family-style restaurants that offer wide booths, kids’ menus and a forgiving serving staff.

Avoiding peak times will ensure less time waiting for your order and as many restaurants have menus online, you can always save time by choosing before you go. Look for places with a children’s menu where a bit of noise and mess is not frowned upon and impeccable behaviour isn’t expected. Some restaurant’s offer special family days, some offer crayons and colouring packs that are always a hit.

If they’re old enough, let them order their own food, and keep it interesting by letting them order something they don’t usually eat at home. There are great family restaurants all over the country and if you are having a day out with the children it’s a treat for lunch or a fun end to the day out. The fun doesn’t have to start and end with food though. You can choose a venue where there’s something extra for when children just can’t face sitting at a table any longer. Many places have play areas, kids’ corners, or other things to entertain while you’re waiting for food.
