Jamie’s Italian



Why shouldn’t lunch be fun and tasty for the children too?


Priding itself of being accessible and affordable for everyone – including the little ones – is Jamie’s Italian


the latest restaurant from our passionate food-revolutionist and lover of ‘la dolce vita’, Jamie Oliver.with his first

London-based restaurant (so far)  which is found in Canary Wharf.


Booking is only possible for 8-14 people to allow flexibility, so make sure you turn up before the tummies start

rumbling too much. Apart from all the things to look at, including ‘live pasta-making’, all children are given

crayons and a colouring sheet when they sit down as long as they are old enough to draw.


When it comes to choosing your food the kids get their own menu, which is listed on a “viewfinder” – not

surprisingly often the highlight of the meal.


Since it’s Jamie we’re talking about here, forget about greasy turkey twizzlers. The choice is between fresh pasta,

free-range chicken or a wholesome burger, served with a Bottled Green Organic cordial and a kid’s sized salad.

And if you eat all your greens you get a badge! A happy child is a happy parent – especially since all this is

yours for less than £6.00, Buon appetito!

Le Cercle



These days, finding anything for free is rare. And finding free food for your children at such classy joints like Le

Cercle seems like something too good to be true, but it is.


The ‘Petits Gourmets’ dégustation menu includes six courses and all six courses change each week ensuring your

little one will get a chance to culture their little pallets.

real cuisine with dishes ranging from pumpkin cream emulsion, to chocolat fondant.


The menu is available Tuesday to Saturday, for children aged from four to 11. Of course, there is a small stipulation,

the children must come with an adult who will also be eating, and paying.

That Place on the Corner



Catering to the needs of both parents and children is a hard thing to do, but That Place on the Corner, located

in Newington Green, seems to have got it just right.


With tasteful decoration, That Place on the Corner looks more like the playroom of a aristocratic child in Victorian

times with a brightly coloured velvet and silk window seat, vintage wooden tables, a little library and beautifully crafted

play shop and a dressing up corner.  


A weekly schedule of baking, crafting, dancing and music making for preschoolers during the day and more programs for

the after-school crowd, your children are sure to be kept busy with the variety of creative activities offered at

That Place on the Corner.


To top off the extensive activities is the food. The children’s menu offers wholesome staples like pasta, burgers, chicken,

fish cakes and even a daily organic baby blend, while the parental choices are a bit more exciting with options like

Goat Cheese Salad, Breaded Plaice Goujons and Panini Sandwiches on the menu.
