Kid-friendly food and tea experiences

When my kids were younger (and even now), I struggled to find food and tea experiences that would be fun and low-key. Here are three we enjoyed:

Little Bay (Croydon) — I still remember my daughter’s eyes lighting up when we walked into their Croydon location. In addition to seating on their ground floor, you can request tables that are up small sets of winding stairs. The multiple alcoves come complete with red velvet curtains and sparkly bits of fabric. All of this, plus the two- and three-course menu was affordable and good too. 2086 499544

The Royal Horseguards Hotel (London) — The Royal Horseguards Hotel, former headquarters for the British Secret Service, is a five-star hotel located close to Whitehall. They offer a range of teas in their lounge from classic afternoon teas, a cream tea and a 'Sweet Treat' (cake, scones and tea). Their 'Mini-Tea' for children 12 and under comes complete with Baby Chai latte, Babichino or fruit juice. Interestingly, the kids seem to enjoy the savory portions more than the sweet ones.

The Tea Terrace Restaurant & Tea Room (Multiple) — The Tea Terrace located on the top floor of the House of Fraser in Guildford offers impressive views of Surrey from its rooftop garden. The interior is brightly colored in hues of pink and blue and oversized chairs perfect for photo opps. While they do not take bookings, tea is served beginning at noon and with a set menu and portion sharing is not discouraged. If you like scones, this place is for you. In addition to traditional plain and ones with sultana, they also have apple and cinnamon, cheese and herb and cranberry and white chocolate to name a few.
