Here’s Falmouth Packet’s Georgie Carter on what makes our Terrace Restaurant a fantastic place to feed the smallest members of the family…
Don’t fancy cooking tonight, don’t worry, the Terrace at Gwel an Mor has the whole family covered. You may have already tried the sumptuous seafood sharing platter, or maybe the ‘to die for’ tapas selection. I will confess I have tried the Pork belly with crackling more than once.
What about the children’s menu? Have you given it a look?
I thought it would be a great idea to take my mother-in-law to Gwel an Mor for dinner for her birthday. With three-year old Mini Me in tow we all perused the menu when I actually paid attention to the price – £2.95 for a toddler menu – whoop whoop!
If you are wondering if it can match muster with the adult meals, the answer is – this is Gwel an Mor, of course it can!
The choice is what you’d expect from a children’s menu – pizza, burger, pasta or even battered fish – but all are home-made from scratch. Simply choose one main and a side and you have a home-cooked meal even the fussiest toddler might find it hard to complain about. Sides include mash potato, baked beans, vegetable etc.
Mini Me went straight for pizza and chips – it was if she knew it was a Birthday party! The portion size was generous and Mini-Me struggled to eat it all.
I had a cheeky taste (all in the interest of the review you understand) and found all the fantastic flavour, style and taste of the adult meal – but just in a portion size fit for a little tum – and at that incredible price you only need a little wallet.
The pizza, on hand-made, hand pulled dough was delicious with not too much topping to make it a mess-fest. The shoe-string fries disappeared in a flurry of ketchup.
If you have a child with a more refined palette, you can also order smaller portions from the ‘grown up’ menu dishes. The children’s menu is designed for younger guests aged 12 years and under – the ‘larger’ kids meals are £4.95 – which is still a bargain for home-cooked fare.
When it came to dessert we decided on some homemade ice cream which came looking so ‘grown up’ Mini Me glowed with pride. Simple ice-cream with fresh fruits, but it made her feel like Royalty.
So next time you can’t decide on what to give the kids for tea (or where to take the whole family) give Gwel an Mor a try.
