Eating out with the kids – How we designed Meat:Stack to tick all the family friendly boxes

As a dad with a young daughter I'm faced with big choices when it comes to daddy daughter day or family days out. Being a huge food lover I’m always on the hunt for a child friendly restaurant which also satisfies my own cravings. This is why when we designed Meat:Stack I wanted to ensure that it had everything I have found I needed for taking your kids out, from birth to burger devouring age. The top 5 child friendly factors for me are:


1. Top quality food with a reasonably priced and flexible kids menu

2. Welcoming and engaging staff in a family friendly environment

3. Easy access from car parks and public transport

4. Easy to manoeuvre inside (Prams and Pushchairs as well as for toddlers!)

5. Key facilities (High Chairs, Baby Change, something for them to do etc.)


As such we put the following in place at Meat:Stack which we think makes it one of the best family friendly restaurants in Newcastle.


1. The Food

At Meat:Stack we are perfectionists when it comes to the food. We source the best local beef and produce to create our famous cheeseburgers and take every element seriously, including making our own sauces and seasonings in house. We therefore can guarantee that the food we serve is not only some of the tastiest you will come across in the North East but we can also tell you exactly what’s in it and stand by its quality.


This also applies to the children’s menu that at £6.50 for a cheeseburger (or plain burger) the way they like it, fries, a drink and a soft serve ice cream is incredible value. We can cater for any intolerances or preferences and our staff will happily put together a burger that suits, whether it’s just beef and bread or piled high with all the fixings. Not a fan of beef? Don’t worry you can get chicken tenders or a vegan option if you prefer.


The menu is available 7 days a week for lunch and dinner for under 12’s, click here to see it alongside the main menu. My daughter is a big fan already (especially of the beef dripping fries with dippy sauce) and if you give it a try I’m sure your little ones will love it too.
