Struggling for ideas to keep the kids entertained over the upcoming February half term? There is nothing to worry about. The restaurants located at the Corn Exchange have some truly magnificent deals for you to get your teeth into, literally.


This February head to Cabana for the ultimate half term offer…

Kids eat free all day, every day.

No do not adjust your screen, you read that correctly – completely free.

Take the little ones for three delicious courses and a drink, including cheesy dough balls, cucumber and sweet potato hummus, followed by a Mozzarella Torrado (that is a cheesy toastie, Brazilian style!) or a mild coconut curry with chicken breast mini skewers.

Round off the meal with a fruity mango sorbet or vanilla or chocolate ice cream. The kids menu also includes a range of dishes which are lower in salt, fat and with naturally occurring sugars to keep the little tots fit and healthy.


Head to the streets of India and treat the children to the brand-new kids menu at Mowgli. With the option to pick and choose a range of small, Indian street food dishes including temple dhal, Mowgli is the perfect option for kids who like to try a variety of flavours. For those looking to enjoy half term on a budget, kid’s dishes include gunpowder chicken and fries and House Chicken Curry & Rice for £5.95.


Corn Exchange offers a variety of restaurants originating from all over the world, and what is great this half-term is that the kids can join in too. Kids can make their own tacos or toasted quesadilla sandwiches at Wahaca, a unique experience for the children where you may have the chance to enjoy some (short-lived) peace and quiet!

Gino D’Acampo: My Restaurant

If you have dashed out the house and forgotten to bring the baby changing essentials with you, have no fear, Gino D’ACampo: My Restaurant has got it covered. With free baby wipes, cotton buds, baby oil and nappies in two different sizes, this might be the most efficient baby changing facility in Manchester. Italians are famed for making a fuss over children and by bringing a piece of Italy to Corn Exchange, Gino’s aim is to make the family’s experience as comfortable as possible.


You will not believe this, but Corn Exchange has another fantastic restaurant giving away free meals for kids this half term. You can expect street food dishes from across East Asia, and kids get their own kid friendly chopsticks to practice with. The menu is labelled in groups of Mini Explorer for up to 5 year olds, Junior Explorer for 3 to 8 year olds and Adventurous Explorer for 7 year olds and over.

Cosy Club

Cosy Club is the perfect destination for family days out and this February half term you get to sit back and get cosy, while the kids are well and truly catered for.  The menu consists of everyone’s favourite dishes, but in kids size portions such Macaroni Cheese, Pesto Pasta, a full English breakfast and even Buttermilk Pancakes for Shrove Tuesday on the 13th of February (which means no mess at home). The Cosy Club also includes lovely illustrated activities like origami and word searches on the menu too.


Taking the kids here in February is the ideal opportunity to let them experiment with new oriental flavours. The menu consists of all sorts of interesting dishes such as Pork & Lemongrass meatballs, the Vietnamese curry Chicken Ca-ri and even Baby Buns, a dish that has been created especially for toddlers under the age of 2.


This gem provides delicious quality Italian cuisine and now kids can get stuck in themselves and make their own pizzas. Kids can choose from a variety of toppings and can get creative by personalising their own base.

If you are in Manchester this half term you are not short of options for dining out with the family. That is for sure.
