1. Perch on Lancing Beach

Once a well-kept secret amongst Lancing locals, we’re thrilled Perch has got recognition for being the public’s favourite child-friendly venue in and around Brighton! Set in a beautiful seafront spot, Perch offer a homemade kids menu which includes freshly prepared chicken wraps, mini pizzas and mac n’ cheese and fish fingers and you are able to book online  via ResDiary. Great changing facilities, high chairs and a friendly disposition makes this a number one destination for families.

2. Fatto A Mano

Offering free pizza for the little uns, it’s no wonder Fatto A Mano came in a strong second in our child-friendly category! Their London road location is small and perfectly formed and their newest restaurant on Hove is the opposite, with bags of space inside and out and a great bar seating area around the pizza oven – perfect for keeping the kids entertained whilst waiting for their food! One mum has told us they even provided little hats to colour in (sorry kids only!) which makes these guys a winning family venue in the people’s eyes!

3.  Bucket & Spade (Permanently Closed)

This Brighton family favourite was tipped to arrive in the top three, due to its kid-friendly atmosphere – oh and the fact it’s directly opposite the beachside playpark. A family run venue, Lyle and his team run a tight ship and a great value children’s menu which includes freshly made sandwiches, paninis, and main courses which are available with fries, beans, peas or salad. A great place for parents to chill out and enjoy a coffee whilst the kids burn off some steam in the paddling pool!
