Kids’ menus with plenty of choice, helpful staff and, in some cases, play areas, make these reader favourites perfect for family meals out
Holidaying in Dorset two years ago, we hopped across the county line to the River Cottage Kitchen and Deli in Axminster. The bright, airy dining room amply accommodated the racket and mess that accompanied our family of four and we enjoyed a decent meal. What stood out was how accommodating they were of our daughter’s severe allergies – to dairy, eggs and peanuts. Despite these restrictions, she was served a full three-courses without the compromises to which we have become accustomed. A dairy- and egg-free chocolate brownie was a treat rarely found outside our own kitchen.
