Best London Kid-Friendly Restaurants

Not all restaurants have to offer entertainment — television, clowns or video games, for example — to keep the youngsters happy. A warm waitstaff, a kitchen open to the flexible whims of a child's palate and a room of diners tolerable of tantrums all add up to a winning formula for feeding your children outside of the home. Take a look at these kid-friendly restaurants in London that can please both big and little diners.
