Sunday Lunch with all the family!

Finding a restaurant where a family, friends and kids can all go and have a great time is never easy, particularly in England, where the restaurant culture has always been geared to sophistication and grown ups. Now Sundays are being rediscovered as family days - thanks to a number of restaurants who not only welcome children of all ages, but in many cases entertain them too!

Here's Uncle Clifford's pick of the bunch...

Le Petit Blanc Brasseries
At Le Petit Blanc (Birmingham, Cheltenham or Oxford) children are not just accepted, they are welcomed. There's an activity pack for children of 11 and under designed to keep young minds (and fingers) out of mischief. Prizes are awarded, dependent of the number of visits to the restaurant.

Radio Café
There's a Radio Café in the Finchley Road NW3, and another in West Quay Reatial Park Southampton. Click the hotlink for details...

Idaho, Highgate N6
Idaho, (sister to Montana and Canyon)is great place to take kids. Adults eat well too, so click on the link to get the details of their Sunday brunch and weekday "food for kids"

Little Havana, 1 Leicester Place WC2 Tel: 020 7287 0101
There's real fun to be had on Sundays at this Cuban Caribbean restaurant. Children up to the age of 8 eat free, and there's a magician, face painting, Disney videos and balloons. Kids have a choice of 4 main courses with a fizzy drink or junior cocktail. Parents do pretty well too: for only a tenner a head the grown ups can feast undisturbed while the sprogs are entertained.

Salieri, 376 The Strand WC2 Tel: 020 7836 1318
Step inside this Aladdin's cave of a place, with its bizarre theatrical memorabilia and frescoed ceilings, and the children's eyes will be popping out like organ stops. Alphonso Rios the great magician, illusionist and balloon shaper is there to keep them happy while you tuck into a £15.00 a head three course lunch. PS - the idea that Salieri poisoned Mozart has long been scrapped, so don't entertain a single qualm-ette.

The Blue Elephant, 4-6 Fulham Broadway, SW6 Tel: 020 7385 6595
We've just recently reviewed this marvellous restaurant. On a Friday evening it was dead smart, but on Sunday there is a spectacular Thai brunch - all you can eat for £16.75, while your offspring are diverted by a clown, cartoons, face painting and balloons.

Smollensky's on the Strand, 105 Strand WC2 Tel: 020 74972101
From midday to 3pm there's lots to occupy children at this popular American style diner. Children's main courses go out for £4.50 and there's a clown, face painting and Nintendo games. The climax of the afternoon is at 2.30pm when there is a raffle and magic show.
