Pubs in Bury, Whitefield and Prestwich will be offering meals to children for just £3 this half term.

From now until November 3, Joseph Holt food pubs across the Northwest will be dishing up a specially crafted child-friendly menu with a variety of mains and sides.

This includes the Blue Bell in Bury, the Goat`s Gate in Whitefield and The Woodthorpe in Prestwich.

Paul Longmire, marketing manager for Joseph Holt, said: “Half term is a particular challenge for families.

“With the spiralling cost of living, treats and activities may be less available.

“And with so many parents having to work long hours, it`s harder to find opportunities for family time.

“We hope our delicious £3 a head kids’ menu will offer the chance for children and their families to enjoy a wonderful treat.”

Dishes include classic crispy battered fish, creamy tomato and mascarpone pasta, mouth-watering buttermilk chicken and  sizzling beef burgers.

This will all be served with a choice of vegetables and salads as well as a spud option of choice – such as chips, skinny fries, or mash.
