Family-Friendly Feasts: A Guide To Where Kids Eat Free, Or On A Budget, During Half-Term And Beyond

Update 1
Hi folks, i hope you're well

Navigating costs during half term and beyond, especially when dining out on a budget, can be challenging. I've dedicated some time to gather information on places where kids can eat for free or at a lower cost, depending on the restaurant(s). Some of these establishments may not actively promote these offers, so I found it valuable to share. If there are any offers i've missed, please feel free to comment, and i'll review.

Please note, offers may vary, depending on location, so please check before you book/travel.

Thank you

    You’d be better off using Taste Card/etc at some of these places (you can usually get a cheap/free 3 month offer).

    Bella Italia for example the portions were tiny and prices extortionate. I got a burger and fries (~£16) and used the £1 offer for my 5yo and 8yo. My burger was little bigger than a McDs cheese burger and I got a handful of fries. Kids were still hungry after their pasta.

    None of us are big eaters.

    Next time around I just got the kids two adult pastas and didn’t bother myself. (edited)

    Really does depend on said offer and terms. It's certainly worth mentioning re tastecard though, I'll update tomorrow.

    Thanks 🙏

    Great list of places to avoid for (a) squealing kids; (b) paying higher adult prices subsidising others' kids

    Noticed the ASDA offer for the first time the other day, and thought to myself "it'd be nice to know other places that have something similar...".

    Much appreciated for the list
