Summer’s here! The perfect time for getting the family together outdoors with a great family film at Hitchin Priory.

Family Friendly Places To Eat Around Hitchin

We have lots of lovely places to eat in Hitchin and the surrounding area. Some of them I reserve for child free times. Some I will save for when the kids are older (or I’m braver). Here is my list of tried and tested places to take the kids for a meal out. Good luck!

Great FREE playgrounds where you can get a coffee…

There are lots of great playgrounds in and around Hitchin – see my guide to find your local one, or try somewhere new.

Sometimes you want to make more of a day of it though, so I’ve written this guide to where the kids can play and, more importantly, you can get coffee or cake as well!
