So Harrogate Mumbler were invited along to Ginos to give our honest opinion of the Family Dining experience which unfortunately meant we had to take (all) of our Mini Mumblers with us (11 months, 5, 6, 7, & 9). Although we were treated to a complementary lunch there is no amount of pizza that would persuade us to give anything other than an totally honest review, so here goes………
We arrived at 12 (ish) and were shown upstairs to the private dining room which is very swish, lots of glass walls, the table was set for 9 in the middle but there were 2 other tables so you could probably seat up to 30 in the room. The extra tables were great for the kiddies as they could colour, play, fight(!) away from the beautifully set table we would eat at.
Our waiter, David was very helpful and didn’t mind at all that I asked for the music to be turned down (I was hopeful that the youngest would sleep….she didn’t!) and whizzed around getting drinks and handing out menus. The games room (table football & pool table) next door to the Private Dining Room was a big hit with all the kids and the glass wall between the 2 meant we could see them but not hear them…. literally my ideal parenting situation!
The starters was ‘Fantastico’ sharing board for the grown-ups, which really lived up to its name with delicious meats, olives, bread and cheeses and the kids food (pizza & pasta) came at the same time which worked very well.
Having the privacy of the room upstairs meant that the kids could play, chat and enjoy themselves without us having to worry that they were potentially annoying other diners. It felt very relaxed and we didn’t have to rush at all, especially once they discovered the (free) photobooth in the adjoining bar area!
The staff were all very tuned in to kids needs and nothing felt like too much trouble. With delicious food, and entertainment for the Mini Mumblers we had a (surprisingly) lovely time and will definitely return to Ginos…..
