Quirky food and Insta-worthy interiors will cause FOMO among teenage friends, while games and colouring sets make London's best family restaurants the perfect places for little ones to refuel their never-ending energy reserves. You can also book these fun restaurants in London for birthdays!
Put some Mexican zing into lunch with the kids at one of Wahaca’s locations across London. Build your own tacos or munch on cheesy quesadilla sandwiches as part of a kids menu, or go large and tuck into spicy tacos, flavour-packed enchiladas and hearty burritos.
Stick your neck out and head to Giraffe, which has several outlets across London. The options for kids include tomato pasta, alongside favourites such as burgers, fish fingers, and bangers and mash.
Work up an appetite with bowling, arcade games and thrilling virtual reality tests, before feasting on burgers, hot dogs and slushies at Hollywood Bowl at The O2. The all-American diner also has a special kids' menu featuring nuggets and special desserts.
Keep teenagers and older kids entertained with fun, interactive tables at Inamo. Let them order their food, play games and even watch the chefs preparing the pan-Asian fare: think sushi, yakitori and tempura, which are perfect for sharing with the whole family. Choose from outlets in Covent Garden and Soho.
Grab a pizza from Pizza Pilgrims & Friggitoria and eat it gloriously, slice by slice, outside in pretty Kingly Court. This trendy pizzeria will have the kids drooling over its deep fried mac‘n’cheese balls and sweet treats, including pizza dough stuffed with Nutella.
Let the kids soak up 1950s vibes as they’re transported back to a bygone era at Poppie's Fish and Chips' shops. Cod, fishcakes and sausage all feature on the menu, or they can opt for haddock, scampi and even jellied eels (now there’s one for adventurous kids) from the main options.
Let the kids go crazy over frozen custard at Covent Garden’s Shake Shack. Pick up burgers, hot dogs and crinkly fries to enjoy alongside a dense “concrete” or hand-spun frozen custard shake with the likes of peanut butter mixed in. Utterly indulgent!
Pasta-loving kids will adore the food at Spaghetti House restaurants across London, especially in the Soho, Haymarket and Oxford Street areas. The kids' menu features Italian dishes such as spaghetti bolognese and pizza with tomato and mozzarella. There's also a great choice of gelato for dessert!
