Nancys Pantry Child Focused Restaurant

Nancy's Pantry Dalston London
Good News for East London Families As First-Of-Its-Kind Child-Focused Restaurant Opens

Finally, a truly family-friendly eatery opening on the 9th February 2014 in Dalston, London is set to change the way families eat out with an equal focus on great food and stimulating children’s activities.
Until now, eating out with children has been one big compromise; either good quality food but with the children running riot in unsettled boredom before the mains appear; or a kid-friendly venue with dodgy food which adults have to endure.
Nourishing and nurturing
The menu at Nancy’s Pantry focuses on great seasonal dishes, from British classics to favourites from further afield. As well as all food being clearly coded with allergy and intolerance information, we offer a significant number of tasty gluten and wheat-free alternatives. The restaurant will also be entirely nut-free, helping to reassure parents, while homemade purées for babies will put paid to those warmed-up supermarket pots for the very young.

A restaurant that puts stimulating play on the menu
Offering tailored entertainment in a variety of forms for children from newborns to 10, Nancy’s Pantry will feature three innovative play areas, taking science and the natural world as its inspiration. With subjects changing on a regular basis and a monthly activity schedule posted online, customers could be joining in with ice experiments one day and giant art displays the next.
How the idea came to fruition
The driving force behind Nancy’s Pantry is London mum Gemma Timms, who, with two young children herself, grew tired of overpriced ‘family-friendly’ restaurants offering nothing much more than fish fingers and a few colouring sheets: “I couldn’t understand why even in London, where we are increasingly spoilt for choice when eating out, no one was properly offering what I wanted; a restaurant designed with both children and adults in mind."
Named after Gemma’s 5-year-old daughter Nancy, it’s a family venture with Gemma, who has 10 years at the Treasury behind her, joined by her father Mike Dawson, an award-winning chef with 30 years in the industry.
This is just the beginning
The Dalston Square restaurant is already being considered as the flagship site for what is expected to become one of several Nancy’s Pantry restaurants to open in the UK over the next few years. Watch this space!
