Eating out isn’t the cheapest of activities, but it’s a great treat and a lovely way to spend some family time (plus there’s no washing up)!
You can easily save money when eating out if you take advantage of kids eat free restaurant deals and vouchers.
Even though the kid’s menu is cheaper than the adults, if you can get them fed on the house, it will make your pudding taste that much sweeter!
