The Best Kids Eat Free London Restaurants For 2023
Whoever said there’s no such thing as a free lunch obviously didn’t visit London!
There are some fantastic kids eat free London restaurants where you can get a free lunch and more!
You can’t argue with a free meal, especially with the rising costs of living.
If you are already spending an arm and a leg visiting the top attractions in London with kids (although remember there are lots of free things to do in London with kids including some fantastic London museums for kids and London play fountains in the summer) you may be grateful for some free places to eat in London with kids.
Sadly, the last couple of years has had a huge impact on London restaurants. There used to be a long list of restaurants that offered a free kids meal with a paying adult.
Understandably, this is just not possible at the moment for many restaurants but there are still some London restaurants where kids can eat free.
To supplement the list of family friendly restaurants in London offering free kids meals, we’ve included London hotels for families offering kids eat free deals at the end of the post.
We aim to update this post before school holidays because the deals will keep changing. Bookmark this page so you can come back to it when you need to.
