10 Places Where Kids Eat Free in London

Ok, so there’s a catch here … it’s that the grown ups have to fill their boots as well, in order to let the small people get their free grub. Well I’m all for that, we deserve to eat, drink and be merry after all. It’s also one of the most important social and fun things to do as a family, or with friends, so let’s take advantage of the kind restauranteurs out there, and take take take. It is Lent after all. (This post was written in the heady year of 2016, please check with the restaurants if these offers still apply before planning your visit.)


You can find this noodle restaurant in Hampstead, Highgate, London Bridge, Victoria, Charlotte Street, Winchester and Whiteley’s Shopping Centre in Bayswater. It’s Bento boxes, mini chow mien or Japanese friend rice on the kids ninja menu. Whilst adults get to choose from healthy noodle soups or stir fries, as well as a good choice of asian favourites from curries to crispy duck with pancakes.

THE REAL GREEK (Around Town)

There are six branches of The Real Greek across London, including both Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City, and they serve modern Mediterranean cuisine that’s popular with all of the family. The best day to treat the offspring is on ‘Family Sundays‘ as you get a free kid’s meal for every £10 spent by an adult. The offer is for children under 12 and is for a kid’s meal from the Kid’s Menu.


BODEAN’S (Soho, Clapham, Tower Hill)

TATE MODERN (Southwark)

Kids can eat for free* in the café when an accompanying adult buys a main course from the menu.*Valid at lunchtime only for children aged 12 or under, for one child eating with an accompanying adult in either the café or the restaurant on level 6. Subject to availability.



Take a visit to the Gallery Cafe (which is tucked away to the left of the entrance as you come in from Covent Garden) they also offer a ‘kids eat free’ deal.


Barbican KITCHEN (City)

Kids eat free with a paying adult per meal here. Were haven’t eaten in the Kitchen, but last time we were in the area, we had a cheeky look at what was on offer, and the menu looked delicious, interesting and freshly made. It’s also a great place to hang out with the kids, and let them run or play hide and seek. Not ideal for teeny people though playing outside as there is a large pond, which might make you feel nervous if your kids aren’t wearing life jackets.

Smollenskys (Strand & Canary Wharf)

The restaurant on The Strand has been around since I was a kid myself. It is a real institution where kids can choose from free burgers, goujons or pasta before 7pm on weekends with a paying adult.
