Taking the kids out for dinner is a fantastic way to not just skip the cooking and dishes, but also to try new flavours and discover new favourite dishes together. And of course, there’s nothing quite like sharing a meal as a family as a way to spend quality time.
So whether you’re looking for things to do in the Sydney school holidays this year, or are simply on the hunt for great family restaurants to try, Butcher and the Farmer in Meadowbank ticks all the boxes.
We are one of the best family friendly restaurants in Sydney, and we can’t wait to show you why.
Real meals for the kids
Kid friendly restaurants in Sydney can sometimes fall back on the trope of overly simple, basic food options for the young ones. At Butcher and the Farmer, we have put together a kids menu that is child-approved for flavour, but also offer a good amount of nutrition! This includes grilled chicken tenders, fish and chips, and a spaghettini dish.
Of course, your young ones are also more than welcome to order from our main menu, which includes plenty of dishes that appeal to younger audiences just as much as adults (pizza, anyone?).
Fantastic meals for the grown ups
We believe that kid friendly restaurants don’t have to be completely catered towards the young ones. That means that even though we have a great selection for the kids, the grown ups won’t be left with an uninspired array of burgers and fries.
From our decadent pizza menu, to our selection of fish and salads, and pasta, we offer exceptional meals inspired by the butcher and the farmer. Our all-day menu also includes rotisserie dishes, as well as a meat menu, which includes options such as rib-eye steak and baby back pork ribs.
A relaxed atmosphere at Butcher and the Farmer Meadowbank
Butcher and the Farmer has worked hard to create a relaxing, welcoming atmosphere for all at our gorgeous new Shepherds Bay location. Located right on the waterfront of the Parramatta River, our tables offer beautiful views of across the river, as well as the chance to get outside and relax on the lawn.
We’re located quite close to the ferry terminal as well, so if you’re looking for what to do in the school holidays in Sydney, it’s a great opportunity to take a fun ferry ride up the river, jump off for a spot of lunch, then take the ferry or the train home for a full day of activities with the kids.
