Taking your kids out to dinner

We’d bet many of you are shuddering at that thought. The idea of not finding anything your kids can/will eat. Feeling like your children will be noisy and disturb other people’s meals. Trying to come up with ways to keep them entertained while you try and eat your own dinner in peace.

It really shouldn’t be so hard.

And taking your kids out for dinner needn’t be anything like what you’re dreading. At The RUC at Barton or Turner we love kids and wholeheartedly welcome the littlest members of our community for lunch or dinner, any day of the week.

Here are our top tips for an enjoyable meal out with your kids

Get in early – choose lunch, or if it’s dinner head in early. That way the kids are less likely to be overtired and there will be less time to wait for your meals. We are open from midday until 9pm so an early dinner is a great option.

  • Entertain them – your littlies no doubt love to play as all kids do. We have some large paper, pencils, crayons and books they can use. Or if they’re into small games, toys, stickers, whatever their favourite thing happens to be, bring it along!
  • Encourage them – get the kids involved in choosing their meal, ordering, observing and of course make lots of conversation. It’s just as much a social event for them as it is for you.
  • Spoil them – a meal out is a time for treats so let them choose the meal they want. And what kid doesn’t love dessert!

So what have we got for dinner for your munchkins? At The RUC at Barton or Turner we’ve got a great Menu on The Grill. You can choose from our selection of light meals, paninis, pizzas or RUC Classics such as Chicken Breast Parmigiana, Beer Battered Flathead and the RUC Scotch Fillet Burger.

OR they might like to choose from our set kids meals which include the Mini HP Burger, Kids Nachos, Baby Rump, Fish and Chips and Chicken Nuggets. And the best bit? All kids meals come with a complimentary soft drink and bowl of ice cream with their choice of topping. So their treats are covered – and you can go home to enjoy their sugar high. Everyone wins!

The RUC Grill kitchen is open all day, 7 days a week. We’d love to see you and your kids soon.
