Great post. Is hooters family friendly? I’ve only ever been to the one in Nottingham (love their chicken wings) but I wouldn’t take my daughter there!

That's fantastic, especially as you've been able to eat out and/or have a takeaway every day. Enjoy the rest of your holiday x

Thanks for this! Hoping to keep to a similar budget when we go so it’s really useful to hear.

We loved Steak and Shake the last time we were there so definitely fitting that in again!
