Round up the children and reserve a table at one of these hot spots

Many of our members with children are surprised when they discover how many of the city’s top restaurants welcome little ones. From ‘kids eat free’ at Hix Soho to a dedicated play area at Roka Canary Wharf, contact us to book a meal at any of the restaurants below ►

InamoInamo

134-136 Wardour Street, Soho

11-14 Hanover Place, Covent Garden

265 Hampstead Road, Camden

These dynamic Pan-Asian restaurants turn the pre-determined dining experience on its head by passing control over to diners. You can order your food from the touchscreen beamed onto the table or via iPad and children instantly get to grips with the interactive system and love playing games such as battleships, choosing a virtual tablecloth and watching the chefs at work via a camera in the kitchen. It’s far more than just a gimmick – the food is very good indeed and there’s loads of choice for children.

Pizza East

56 Shoreditch High Street

310 Portobello Road, Notting Hill

79 Highgate Road, Kentish Town

The pizzas at this small chain – part of the Soho House group – are handmade using a ciabatta-style slow-proved dough and topped with tomato sauce, both prepared in-house. The selection ranges from the basic margherita to the more elaborate San Daniele with burrata cheese and pesto for children with adventurous palates. The venues are equipped with crayons to help keep youngsters entertained.

Tredwells

4a Upper St Martin’s Lane, Seven Dials

Named after the butler in Agatha Christie’s Seven Dials Mystery, Marcus Wareing’s informal diner-style restaurant is the ideal place to enjoy modern British cuisine and young ones needn’t miss out on the culinary delight thanks to the special kids’ tasting menu. Priced at £17 per head, it has been designed to introduce children to new flavours like harissa-glazed aubergine with coconut and coriander and creamy roasted artichoke soup. Fussy eaters can opt for safer options like pizza or roast beef and gravy.

Contact us to book and the adults will enjoy a complimentary cocktail on arrival.

Hix Soho

66-70 Brewer Street, Soho

Mark Hix has long been campaigning for restaurants to up their game when it comes to providing decent food for children and he’s leading by example. Forget pizza and chips – little ones can enjoy dishes such chicken escalope with a wild herb salad and minute steak with fries. What’s more, children under 10 eat free when accompanied by a dining adult between 4-6pm on weekdays and 12-6pm at weekends.

Roka dark chocolate and green tea pudding, crunchy jivara, pear ice creamRoka Canary Wharf

4 Park Pavilion, 40 Canada Square, Canary Wharf

Often thought of as a very grown-up restaurant, this branch of Roka is in fact so child-friendly that the staff set up a play area every Saturday lunchtime and all day on Sunday. For adults the £45 brunch menu is hugely popular and includes a Bloody Mary or Bellini on arrival, meaning parents can have a drink and relax while the youngsters are distracted by the toys and games. Well-behaved children are also welcome for dinner any night of the week.

Bar Boulud

66 Knightsbridge

This buzzy spot underneath the Mandarin Oriental is a great choice for large family gatherings as the noise levels are higher than at most restaurants in the area and the accommodating staff will take care of all your children’s needs. There’s a kids’ menu and teenagers will find it hard to decide between the four signature burgers on the à la carte menu – the Frenchie with pulled pork belly is our favourite. Pictured top

Hai Cenato

2 Sir Simon Milton Square, Victoria

Any Jason Atherton opening deserves a lot of attention, especially when he steps into new ground like he has here with his first ever Italian restaurant, at Victoria’s new Nova complex. Chef Paul Hood has moved across from Michelin-starred Social Eating House and his modern take on Italian classics would impress even the most hardened traditionalist. Unlike some of Atherton’s more grown-up restaurants like Pollen Street Social and Berners Tavern, it’s remarkably child-friendly and the pizzas will go down a storm with little ones. It is now open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Heddon Street KitchenHeddon Street Kitchen

3-9 Heddon Street, Soho

When you’re dining with children, the last thing you want is a library-quiet space where the slightest giggle or squeal echoes around the room. That’s why this large, bustling venue is ideal for family meals. The children’s menu includes favourites like fish and chips and sausage and mash, while grown-ups can choose from hearty British classics and staples from across the US.

While the youngsters are slurping milkshakes, you can enjoy a complimentary glass of sparkling wine when booking a table through us.

Bodean's

Various locations including Old Street, Soho, Tower Hill and Covent Garden

Known as the smoke-pit capital of the US, nowhere takes barbecuing as seriously as Kansas, and Bodean's has transplanted the state’s smokey flavours and hearty portions to locations across London. They’re lively places where eating with your fingers is encouraged, so children should feel right at home. Choose from the wide selection of well-priced burgers, huge racks of ribs and hot deli sandwiches crammed with all-American fillings. Make sure the kids save room for the epic chocolate fudge brownie.
