Back to Inspirations
The days when the kids had to sit outside a pub with a lemonade and a packet of crisps are well and truly over. The gastropub revolution, spawned by David Eyre and Mike Belben at The Eagle in Clerkenwell in 1991 has become a cornerstone of the national dining scene and many top quality establishments have embraced the idea of family dining. Many have children's menus, but pub classics like fish and chips appeal to all ages. For some of the best British food around, in comfortable, relaxed surroundings and at a price that won't make your head spin, it's got to be a gastropub.
The Inn at Whitewell

Set on the banks of the Hodder with views of the Forest of Bowland, the cosy bar of this magnificent inn makes a great destination for a family trip out for a traditional Sunday roast with all the trimmings followed by a walk along the river. Dishes like Cumberland bangers and champ from the main menu make perfect mid-week family fare.

The Wheatsheaf Inn

Set in a charming Cotswolds village, this is a real hidden gem polished wood floors, rugs, open fire place and a spacious garden. The children's menu includes roast salmon and chips and sausage and mash but older kids might be tempted by a choice from the selection of grills including sirloin steak and chips.
