Are you looking for a family friendly restaurant in the Harrogate town centre? Do you need to eat out with a toddler somewhere that understands that you’ll need a highchair and that something might (ok probably will) get spilled?
These places are not all ‘exclusively’ for families or children but they have all shown thoughtful touches or great facilities (things like pushchair access, changing facilities, highchairs and so on)
At Harrogate Mumbler we are always looking to ‘spread the word’ if we find out about any little gems, so if you know of a pub, restaurant or café that should be included in this listing then please contact us here.
Gino D’Acampo has a large Italian restaurant on Parliament Street Harrogate, North Yorkshire. Like many italian restaurants it is completely family friendly and they have got a private dining room on the 1st floor which you can pre-book.
There is also a complimentary Games Room & Photo Booth. Kids can create their own 🍕 and of course there’s Prosecco for the grown-ups!
Harrogate Mumbler reviewed the restaurant in December 2018 and you can read the review by clicking on the “More info about” button below.

Burgers & More have moved! From 22nd March 2019 they will have a new home: 4 Station Parade, Harrogate, HG1 1UE (The old Damn Yankee restaurant)
The mini Mumblers really love a burger and they had heard rumour that there is a place in town where you can get a burger in a donut, with a side of custard (to dip your chips in of course!)
Resistance was futile, and so we made a date to try out “Burgers & More” which is an independent restaurant. We went on a Sunday tea time, and whilst it was fairly busy, we hadn’t booked and they managed to fit us in straight away.
The interior is great, it’s below ground but it’s bright and welcoming. There is a good mix of seating and it looked like it would cope with large bookings with ease.
The menu is extensive to say the least!
The kids both ended up choosing off the kids menu (which had a great selection- Chicken Goujons, Fish & chips (from Ramus), “Monster Burger” (with unicorn bread!) Chicken Burger, Southern Fried Chicken, Pasta, Calzone & Pizza, all priced at £5.95 (Oct 2017)
They both chose the monster burgers and were absolutely thrilled with the amazing unicorn bread.
The adult menu is where the magic really happens… The donut burger is actually called the “Trump Burger” (Described in the menu as “that daft it might actually work”) There were 22 different burgers on the regular menu plus 4 specials. Not only could you order them individually, you can choose a few of your favourites and get them in a “tower” which is 2, 3, 4 or 5 burgers in a stack.
As well as the burgers, there is of course the “& More” side of the menu. To be honest I didn’t even bother looking at that. (Why would you? The Burgers are awesome!) If you do want to now about what’s on the rest of the menu, you can see them on the Burgers and More website here
Anyway, back to the Burgers, I chose a special called “Burger Wellington” which was basically beef wellington (garlic mushrooms, pastry and all) but with a burger instead of steak. It was delicious! My husband chose “Jack the Lad” which was a special impregnated with more than a dash of Jack Daniels. He assured me that it was really good although he had wolfed it down before I had the chance to try it myself!
For desert, the kids both chose the sundae which was fantastic value at £2.45 for a massive helping of Vanillis ice-cream with cream, sauce and wafers.
I was extremely impressed with Burgers & More. The staff were really friendly and the food was fantastic. It’s a real gem, an independent family friendly restaurant and I would urge you to get down there to try it for yourself.
Note- I wasn’t invited to review Burgers & More, nor did I receive any free food! I just visited with my family and was really impressed.
If any of you are interested in the Burgers & More food challenge, you can see the competitive eating legend Adam Moran, “Beard Meats Food” demolishing the 100oz twin burger challenge at Burgers & More here.
As well as being a great café during the day serving delicious ciabattas, coffee and cakes, Marconi turns into a pizzeria each night serving authentic Italian dishes at very reasonable prices.
The children’s menu is fantastic value for money and includes dough sticks, pizza/pasta, a scoop of ice cream and a glass of juice.
Don’t be put off by the basement access to Caffe Marconi, this is a really family-friendly place and the staff will always help you with buggies.
There are plenty of high chairs and changing facilities too.

I was a bit dubious when Revolution De Cuba invited us for a family lunch as I’d always associated the place with boozy cocktails and dancing into the early hours. But how wrong was I – it turns out in the daytime it’s a really family friendly restaurant! Baby changing facilities, room for buggies and a great children’s menu – Revolution De Cuba has it all!
The first big tick is how accessible the place is! We arrived, with a pretty big buggy and a sleeping toddler and we didn’t have a single step to deal with! The place is so spacious we had no problem in manoeuvring the buggy about. There was plenty of space around the table for our buggy, a high chair and the million shopping bags we had with us. I noticed there were a few other families with buggies dining, and all had plenty of space. It was a bank holiday weekend lunchtime too – so the place was pretty packed. Its nice to go to a restaurant where they haven’t tried to fit in as many tables as possible. The extra space certainly made us feel more relaxed – even when our toddler decided to make an escape from the high chair we didn’t feel like she was disturbing any of the other diners.
We were seated at our table, given the adult and children’s menu along with an activity pack – including crayons and bubbles to keep our daughter amused. You also get a small cup of nachos to keep you going whilst you peruse the menu. Service was excellent – our waiter was Sam and he was fab – talking us through the menu and giving his recommendations. We opted for 3 tapas dishes for us adults to share as a starter – my favourite being the chorizo croquettes! My husband went for the Cuban Cheeseburger and I went for the Sunshine Salad for mains. All got the thumbs up from us! The children’s menu was £5.95 for a main, dessert and a drink. We chose the homemade chicken goujons with sweet potato fries and salad for my daughter. The portion sizes for both adult and children were just right. I also LOVED the fact they had children’s cutlery. More often then not when we dine out we usually have to deal with my 2-year-old wielding cutlery bigger than her!
Her drink – a choice of fizzy drinks or juices – came in a plastic pineapple – she loved it, and so did we. It was knocked over a few times and there were no spillages! Desserts were ice cream for the little one and chocolate cake and Churros for Mum and Dad. Wowzer – those Churros were gorgeous – and a really generous portion!
All in all, we had a fab time here, the staff were great and the food delicious – a great family friendly restaurant we’ll be sure to frequent again! Check out their Facebook page for special offers – they usually run promotions over school holidays – kids eat free etc. On last Thursday of every month they also host Boomchikkboom parties – basically parties (discos, bubbles, messy play etc.) for babies and toddler. Turns out partying at Revolution De Cuba isn’t just for the adults!

Similar sort of target market as Pizza Express but the building is configured differently so there are a variety of smaller rooms rather than one big open space. Families are made to feel very welcome here and there is a decent children’s menu for £6.95 including dough sticks, pizza or pasta and a desert. There is also a tiny kids menu for £3.
