Dining out for two can be seriously expensive. But when you add in the cost of multiplying children as you get older, it really starts to add up.
Particularly when the whole clan’s off for summer and you want to treat yourselves to a nice family day out.
With this in mind, we’ve got the lowdown on where kids can eat for free throughout Belfast – with a few slightly farther afield options as well
116-118 Lisburn Road – Website
Ideal for anyone that works during the week and wants to treat the family at the weekend, Ryan’s is one of the selected restaurants that allows kids to eat free every Saturday and Sunday.
The deal allows for two kids for every one paying adult (under 12 years), which is seriously competitive in value!
447-449 Ormeau Road – Website
You don’t get much more family friendly than Ambrosia, where Sunday is Fun Day, with kids under 12 eating free all day! So for every paid adult meal of equal or greater value – you get a kids meal free. Talk about a bargain!
Just be warned – the children may grow exceptionally attached to the dedicated Italian ice-cream bar, which starts at £1.50 per scoop!
3. Havana Bank Square
56-58 Berry Street – Website
We love Havana – so it works out well that kids can eat entirely for free every Sunday, with one kid’s meal free with every adult meal purchased. Not bad, eh?!
4. Tony Roma’s
25-27 University Road – Website
Kids eat for free every Sunday at Tony Roma’s. With its proximity to Botanic Gardens, the Ulster Museum and a brand new Barnam’s Ice Cream Parlour right around the corner, this is a particularly family-friendly option!
5. The 4th Wall
8 Edward Street – Website
Similarly to a few of the others on the list, on Sundays kids under 11 eat free, with one child per adult!
6. Ed’s Bar & Grill
Lisburn Leisure Park – Website
Although not completely free at Ed’s Bar & Grill, kids eat for only £1 all day long – which amazingly, includes a main course & ice-cream!
The offer is valid with any adult main course for £12.95 or more, with one kid per adult. Just tell the kids to bring their pocket money.
Omniplex Leisure Centre, Lisburn – Website
Kids eat free every day with every adult meal purchased over £12.95! Perfect for a trip after the cinema…
