Eating Out York

Clifton Moor

Eating out with kids can sometimes be something of a challenge (understatement of the year!) There are plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants in the York area which really do welcome children and families so I’ve compiled a list of them here.

These places are not all ‘exclusively’ for families or children but they have all shown thoughtful touches or great facilities (things like pushchair access, changing facilities, highchairs and so on)

At York Mumbler we are always looking to ‘spread the word’ if we find out about any little gems, so if you know of a pub, restaurant or café that should be included in this listing then please contact us here.

Bella Italia

Serving pizza, pasta and Italian classics.

‘Bella Italia is my girls’ favourite … love the fact there are two different sizes of kids’ meals and that they can order any pasta from the adult menu in a smaller size gives them a huge choice.’

‘Bella Italia are fab with my grandson especially at Clifton moor. Also had great Gluten free menu for coeliac hubby too!’

Frankie & Benny’s

‘I like the way you can build your child’s meal with several options in each category, main, vegetables & carbs, reasonable price & the option of 2 different portion sizes.’

‘I find it a quick and friendly service which is great with little ones! They are generally really good with kids and have colouring pencils at the ready along with high chairs. I have a 20month old who doesn’t sit for long and we are able to actually sit and enjoy our meal in there’
