Some restaurants claim to be family friendly, but then you spend your entire visit feeling awkward when your children knock over their drink (probable), drop their cutlery (highly likely) or declare all-out war over a paper napkin (without a doubt going to happen).
But at Frankie & Benny’s you’re never made to feel uncomfortable when your kids are being, well, kids.
With its rock ‘n roll music and American diner decor, the dining room has a fun, friendly feel. As well as a junior menu to appeal to every discerning young diner, there are also activity books and crayons to keep little ones entertained.
After all, the Holy Grail for parents is to be able to finish their meal without a distracting chorus of ‘I’m boooooooored!’, right?
KIDS IN CONTROL
This summer FRANKIE & BENNY’S are launching their ‘Kids in Control’ promotion. They’ve created a fab new app for iOS and Android. Download it and register your details, you’ll instantly receive a voucher for £10 off your total bill (when you order two main meals), and another for 25% off after 5pm on Mondays.
AND, as part of their ‘Kids Eat Free’ promotion, you’ll also get one free kids’ meal with every main meal purchased between Monday and Friday, until the end of the year. The perfect school holiday treat!
But there’s more… every time you dine in before 4th September kids will have the chance to enter the ‘Create a Dish’ competition. Get them to draw their most inventive foodie character on the colouring sheet provided, snap a pic and upload it to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #KidsInControl, to be in to win.
Not only could your child’s drawing be picked to appear in the app Gallery, but each week five lucky winners will have their characters brought to life in Frankie & Benny’s own animated cartoon series. You can actually check out Lil and Big Sis’s efforts below (shout out to Isabella Icecream, Toby Tomato, Penelope Pizza and Harry Hamburger).
THE YUMMY TALES APP MOVIE
In addition, one weekly winner will also nab an overnight stay for four at either Alton Towers Resort, or Chessington World of Adventures Resort.
But that’s not all… your child might also get the chance to see their character created in the foodie flesh at a special ‘Kids Only’ event, hosted by Frankie’s top chefs at their innovation kitchen. Amazing, right?
So download the FREE app (search Frankie & Benny’s app) and access your vouchers; you can even use it to book a table at your nearest restaurant. When you’ve done all of that, click on to the Photobox section, and have yourself some selfie fun!
