Child Friendly Summer Lunch

Cool Sunday Lunch Pubs Your Kids Will Love!

Sunday lunch is a great way to have quality time with your family after a hectic week. But if you don’t have the time or energy to braise a pork joint (and the do the washing up afterwards) , heading to the pub for your family feast is a great call.

There are loads of great Sunday lunches out there – but not all are suited to the…discerning tastes… of the modern 5 year-old. Here are four pubs that combine great food with high chairs and crayons for a great time for the whole family!

Stapleton Tavern, Crouch Hill

Deceptively huge, the Stapleton Tavern is a great place to get a classic English roast with the kids, friends and family. Large tables are spaced in their own acreages, so your children will have plenty of room to… be themselves.

There’s a fab beer and wine selection, some cracking takes on classic pub grub (sausage roll sharers and pork pie on the charcuterie board!). You can even bring in your dog and get him a little Sunday lunch of his own.

The Sun, Camberwell

You could easily find yourself spending all day in the Sun’s extensive garden area. Pull up, get a table, have a slow drink while the kids play. Get the starters in, then salivate over the main and then squeeze in the desert (the chocolate hazelnut brownie is the best around!)

If you are spending all day in the garden this summer, make sure you slather your children in Infant Sun Care SPF 50+. It contains only natural UV filters, so is gentle on children’s sensitive skin.

Ways to Keep Your Kids Entertained During the Winter

The Albion, Islington

A secluded Islington gem, the Albion is a little classier than the Sun or the Stapleton, but just as welcoming to children and well-behaved parents. Hidden between the beautiful Georgian facades of the stylish Liverpool road, your kids will love the suited up version of their favourites: cottage pie, bangers and mash and burgers.

If you want a treat to remember, why not order the whole roast suckling pig – the perfect accompaniment to the beautiful garden area, and great for birthdays!

The Spaniard’s Inn, Hampstead

This pub has a lot going for it; aside from having a solid claim at being London’s oldest public house, its location – just next to Hampstead Heath – makes it the perfect place to fill up hungry young tummies after a morning of exploring the Heath.

The Sunday Lunch menu is delicious, but rustic and unpretentious enough not to put off fussy eaters. There’s a range of fish’n’chips-esque classics too, for if they’re being terrors.
