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

Nandos at vanguard. Always so friendly with my daughter and accommodating to us having two kids, needing pram space. They offer colouring, books to read and not to mention the children’s menu and meals are lovely xxx

Famous for its Italian classics, from bubbling pizzas and scrumptious pasta to traditional bruschetta and classic Tiramisu, Prezzo bring you a touch of Italy to the UK!

Buon appetito!

I always found Prezzo great when Poppy was little (and now too!)
I took her there on my own one time and she was creating so much I couldn’t eat my lunch so one of the waiters came over and played with her so I could eat, safe to say they got a hefty tip from me that day xx

Lots of space for buggies, great changing facilities with breast feeding area if you want it.  Staff warmed a bottle no issues.

My grandchildren loved going to the Carvery to help themselves to all the vegetables. They also got plenty of Turkey even though it was on the kids menu.
