Full list of cafes and restaurants where kids can eat free or cheap this half term – including Asda and Sizzling Pubs


FEEDING the kids this half term doesn’t need to break the bank, with a host of chain restaurants and supermarkets offering deals where kids can eat cheaply or even for free.

From completely free meals to paying just £1 a head, it’s easy to find something nutritious and in budget.

For worried parents getting slammed by the cost of living crisis, these bargains could offer a lifeline during the school break.

Sarah-Jane Outten, shopping expert at MyVoucherCodes, said: “Looking at discount and voucher websites would be my first stop – then, take a look at any deals offered via your supermarket loyalty cards or apps. 

Supermarket cafes are also great places to feed your family cheaply, with various offers from children eating for £1 or eating for free, when an adult pays full price for a meal.  

“Many restaurant chains will also be doing email mailshots ahead of half term to advertise any deals they currently have on offer, so don’t be too eager to delete them from your inbox.”

Here, The Sun has rounded up all the best “kids eat free” or cheap offers that are available over the half term week and beyond.

Angus Steakhouse

Children aged eight and under can enjoy complimentary meals at Angus Steakhouse on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, as well as every day during half term, when accompanied by a full-paying adult.

You get one free child meal per adult buying a main course, but remember the deal can’t be used in conjunction with any other offers, menus, specials, or discounts. 


Asda’s ‘Kids Eat for £1’ deal runs in over 205 Asda Café’s all year round – not just during the school holidays. 

Kids under 16 can enjoy a hot meal for £1 and, unlike with other retailers or outlets, you don’t need to make an accompanying minimum adult spend to qualify.

Dishes in the deal include penne pasta with meatballs and a vegan hidden veg pasta meal, as well as fish fingers, chicken nuggets and an all-day breakfast.

Children also receive a free piece of fruit such as an apple, pear or banana when purchasing the hot kids £1 meal deal.

As an alternative to a hot meal, Asda Cafés also offer a cold pick and mix selection in the deal, which includes a sandwich, a drink and piece of fruit.

Banana Tree

At Banana Tree, kids under 12 eat free every Sunday. 

This offer entitles you to one free kid’s main meal and kid’s dessert per full price main meal ordered from the ‘All Day’ menu.

The children’s menu includes chicken or vegan katsu curry and sweetcorn fritter balls, and comes with an activity pack.

The offer is not available at the O2 Arena restaurant on event days, and kids’ drinks are not included. 

It’s also not available alongside any other offer, set menu, voucher or discount, except for the two-for-one cocktails deal. ID may be requested.

Beefeater and Brewer’s Fayre

Beefeater and Brewer’s Fayre are offering free breakfasts for kids under sixteen alongside every adult breakfast purchased.

And in great news for single parents and larger families, you can feed two kids for every one adult meal purchased. That means you can feed three people for just £10.99.

During the day, Beefeater also has a three-course kids’ menu for just £6.99.

Meanwhile, Brewers Fayre has a “Feed the Family” offer over half term.

From May 28 – June 7, Monday to Friday, 12-6pm, customers can get two adult mains and two kids’ meals for £20 all-in.

Bella Italia

Kids eat free at Bella Italia every Thursday and for £1 between 4-6pm, Sunday to Wednesday.

As part of the offer, children can enjoy three courses and a drink, with meals suitable for 2-11 year olds, the restaurant says.

You can get one free child’s meal per adult meal purchased. If two adults are dining and both order a main meal, then two children get the offer.

Outside of these times, Bella Italia’s smaller kids’ menu costs £6.49 and the larger menu costs £8.49.


Up to two kids can eat free all day at Bill’s restaurant from Monday, May 27 to Friday, May 31. 

To get the deal, one adult needs to order any main dish from the breakfast, lunch or dinner menu.

Bill’s children’s menu features favourites such as buttermilk pancakes, mac & cheese and fish fingers and chips.

The offer is valid for kids aged 10 and under, although drinks are not included. It cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer.


Kids can eat for free at BrewDog over half term from May 25 to June 2, with everything from DIY pizzas to cheese toasties included.

You need to pre-book selecting “KIDS EAT FREE” to claim and you can get one free kids’ meal per adult main purchased.

What help is available for parents?

Money saving tips for parents

WE'VE put together six top tips to cut costs, nab freebies and to make sure you're not fined.

  • Free prescriptions and dental care – Prescriptions cost £9.15 a pop in England, while NHS dental costs vary by location. You can get both for free while you’re pregnant and for 12 months after your baby’s due date. Ask your doctor or midwife for a maternity exemption certificate (MATEX) to claim the free care.
  • Free milk, infant formula, vitamins or fruit and veg – Under the Healthy Start programme, you may be entitled to the freebies if you’re at least 10 weeks pregnant or you have a child under four and you’re on certain benefits, such as Universal Credit.
  • £500 free grant – In England, Northern Ireland and Wales you may be entitled to a Sure Start grant of £500 if you’re on certain benefits and expecting your first child or expecting more than one baby – such as twins.To claim, you need to fill out the following form on and get your doctor or midwife to sign it.
  • Register the birth in time or face a £200 fine – You need to register the birth within 42 days of your baby being born with your local registry office. This costs £11 in England and Wales.
  • Update a will or update it – If you don’t have a will, in England, Northern Ireland and Scotland, where one parent dies, children will only inherit cash if the estate is worth more than £250,000 – otherwise all the money will go to the surviving spouse. If you don’t want that to happen, you need to get a will stating your wishes.
  • Consider getting life insurance – No-one likes to think about death but if something happened to you, could the family survive without your salary? If not, you many want to consider life insurance. Use a comparison service to find not only the cheapest, but the most suitable cover for your needs.


Kids eat free at Morrisons all day, every day when you purchase an adult meal with a value of £4.50 or more.

You get one kids’ meal per adult order, but extra portions or trade ups are not included in the £4.50 minimum value. The child must be under 16 years of age and present at the time of purchase.

The children’s meals include piece of fruit and a Tropicana Kids Orange or Apple drink or bottle of water.

The deal cannot be used with any other offer except the Teatime Meal Deal, and the free meal must be a kids’ meal purchased from the customer Café kids’ menu or chilled kids’ snack pack.
