Ikea Antilop or Asda/Aldi ones... they're great when weaning because they're so easy to clean and you buy padded inserts for the IKEA one.

IKEA all the way! Cheap as chips, hose down-able and folds small too!

A million times Ikea antilop! I spent £70 on a stupid, impossible to clean, all-singing all-dancing high chair and used it for about four months before switching to an ikea one, which I LOVE! If you get the inflatable insert it will help to support her while she's still tiny.

I got a second hand mamas and papas one off eBay and like it so far, paid 20 quid

As a nanny, I've used lots of different high chairs over the years. The two best ones are the Ikea antilop and the stokke tripptrapp. Most parents who start off with one of the padded reclining chairs, give up on it a few weeks after they start weaning, because they are so difficult to keep completely clean and buy the Ikea chair which is a doddle to clean.
The tripptrapp is a lot more expensive but it's a chair that will last from babyhood until they are teenagers. They are not quite as easy to keep clean as the Ikea, but a lot easier than standard high chairs. They look a bit nicer than the white plastic Ikea, you can get them in different colours and wood stains.

If you’ve got the money, I’d recommend the oxo tot one. It’s easy to clean, smaller ‘footprint’ than the Ikea one, and flexible enough that it will become a chair for an older child. Wouldn’t recommend anything paddded or reclining. And if funds don’t allow, the Ikea one is good!
