Where Can Kids Eat Cheap, Or Even FREE During The May Half Term?

Updated: May 22


Where Can Kids Eat Cheap, Or Even Free During The Half Term Break


Find out where the kids can eat free, or for just £1, this May Half Term!

Looking for budget-friendly eating-out options for your kids this half term? Look no further! Our guide features restaurants and cafes where kids can eat for free or just £1

Hopefully, the weather will be on our side this half term, and we can all take our kids out in the sunny weather. Although I'm going camping, so I suspect we're due horrendous downpours or ice storms, but if we can take the kids out, it's good to know where we the kids can eat cheap, even free, to help keep the budget in check!


Most of these kids offers offers require a purchase of an adult meal before the kids can get a discounted meal, so it's important to bear this in mind because if you are trying to save money, it's probably going to be cheaper to buy the ingredients for a kids meal than it is to purchase an adult’s main meal to be then able to get cheap children’s meal deal, however, if you're going to eat out anyway, then it makes sense to swap to a restaurant offering great value meals for kids, as this is a great way to save some money!


🔥 Don't forget you can buy gift cards from services such as JamDoughnut and Cheddar for many of the restaurants and chains mentioned below. These cards will earn you cashback, making the cost of eating out even cheaper, which is very useful if you are going to a restaurant where an adult will need to pay full price for a meal.
