London’s Best Toddler Friendly Restaurants

10 May 18

With a staggering portfolio of award-winning eateries, Michelin star-studded restaurants and trendy street food cafes, London’s buzzing culinary scene dazzles the most discerning of foodies. But it can be trickier than first imagined to seek out those establishments that are also toddler friendly. From healthy brunch options to Sri Lankan pancakes and traditional fish and chips, our favourite toddler friendly restaurants in London cater exceedingly well for young ones, and have plenty to offer adults, too.


The Mayfair Chippy

For those hankering after a ‘traditional’ London meal, this popular establishment serves crisp battered fish and chips alongside comforting favourites such as shepherd’s pie and fish cakes. The Mayfair Chippy’s take-away menu caters perfectly for those preferring to enjoy a family picnic in nearby Hyde Park.


For a fun, family-friendly meal out in London that suits both toddlers and adults, Hoppers ticks all the boxes. The cosy décor in its Soho nook is friendlier than the smarter branch on Wigmore Street, but both are welcoming, with adventurous and exotic menus that really wow. Sri Lankan cuisine typically includes crispy dosasand hoppers(both takes on a pancake, best eaten by hand), and the ones served here are real crowd-pleasers.

Sticky Fingers

As its name suggests,Sticky Fingersin London’s Kensingtonis not precious about messy eating. Its menu is heartily crammed with finger-licking, all-American favourites such as baby back ribs, chicken wings and an impressive stack of burgers. There’s a toddler-friendly menu for smaller appetites, and a plate piled high with heavy-on-the-salsa nachos is an ideal snack for a family to share.

Mattarello Restaurant

Italian food doesn’t come more authentic than this, with Mattarello’s sfoglino(pasta maker) sure to hold wandering attentions as they deftly roll and cut fresh sheets of pasta in front of you. The easy-to-nibble tortelloni and traditional Bolognese favourites make for a deliciously moreish menu, and a popular choice for families.


With a dress code stating ‘as you wish’, Tredwells prides itself on its relaxed ambiance but doesn’t scrimp on the exacting quality of its contemporary British food. The dining room of celebrity chef Marcus Wareing, Tredwells’ seven-course Culinary Kids menu is for the more adventurous youngsters, but there are simple options such as meatballs or an omelette for those less dextrous with a fork.

Beaufort House

With huge windows overlooking a busy corner of the King’s Road, Beaufort House is a lovely place to while away an hour or two, watching Chelsea’s trendy set drift by. Offering fresh, sophisticated fare, it’s one of the best toddler friendly restaurants in London, and does a spectacular brunch—prosciutto and egg is a favourite—with a kids’ menu that includes mini portions with a healthier bent, such as fresh fruit salad and chicken with quinoa.



A hop, skip and jump from Borough Market, Hixter’s industrial, brightly lit interiors are punctuated with some very hip pop art. Don’t be put off by the trendy décor, though. Master chef Mark Hix’s menu is as down-to-earth as they come, with a whole roast Indian Rock chicken the ideal choice for families to share, and a kids menu including traditional toddler-friendly favourites such as boiled eggs with soldiers and fish fingers.
