While The Ritz London tries to prove it’s a kid-friendly luxury hotel — the free ice cream for young guests certainly helps — we don’t think that any of its restaurants are suitable for families with children. Even though the strict dress code is relaxed for little ones, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s restaurants are too formal and grand. It will be hard for noisy, wiggly kids to sit through afternoon tea in the marble-filled Palm Court or dinner in the regal Ritz Restaurant. Though the restaurant can be a breakfast or lunch option for older, well-behaved children. You’re better off sticking room service (a children’s menu includes pizza and spaghetti Bolognese) or dining out with the family.
