Instead of children eating free with every adult meal, the restaurant chain said it wants to show a little love and reward the grown ups by switching it round. Frankie & Benny’s head Of brand, Sasha Story, head of brand, said: “Unexplainable tantrums, shopping trips that consume the whole day, disturbed nights, the list goes on.

“Our lovely little dictators get their fill of the fun, so this half term, it’s your time to enjoy a perk for yourself. Get your meal for free when little diners eat with us during the half term holidays. Something for you, on us.”
