Lunch in London? Nice but also child friendly

Any suggestions? We were going to have afternoon tea but then realised Harrods tea rooms are closed. Not too fussed on budget, definitely don't want Hard Rock Cafe or rainforest cafe, looking for somewhere nice but where children are also catered for!

Giraffe on the South Bank is our usual.

Charlotte Street Hotel is lovely, or Sketch is very cool, Daisy Green usually has Jazz on a weekend more king during brunch, Sky Garden is fun for all ages

Maybe bit too child-friendly for what you’re after?

Referring to my own post rather than hw’s!

Kind of hoping for somewhere a bit special and not what we have locally already

Giraffe on the south bank was stuffed with kids when I went. Chips were to die for (but I was hanging).

Obv you need to be up for curry type food

I think Fortnum and Mason are doing tea.

Any particular area of London?

The Wolseley is very child friendly and lovely.

My daughter loved Emilias in St Katherine Dock. It's teeny tiny, pasta bar, and you can sit up at the counter and watch the chefs make all the pasta and meals fresh.

We were very impressed with the food, the service, and the dock is beautiful.

Is the Ritz open again? If so, lunch there is lovely and I've been with kids and it felt very special!

Thanks all. Looked back on the Ritz for afternoon tea and they had one table available!!!! Excited grin

DH and I were both really disappointed by Dishoom. We went to the one at Carnaby and it was expensive but tasted like a Tesco microwave meal. The tiny, brick hard naan that broke into crumbs was particularly terrible! sad
