    Well there's a nicer Nandos near The Dockyards, Kitchens and the Waga too! lol.

    There's a Pret, two sushi places and a bagel nash on the walk up to the Kitchen if your kiddo would eat anything from any of them if you are wanting ze Kitchens?

    Does Nandos need bookings? lol.

    I'd say Nandos or Waga is booking required. Kitchens if its outside seating is no booking but there's bits to sit on around Spinningfields anywho.

    Haha. No chance.

    He'd probably eat the chips from the Hip Hop Chip Shop, but I couldn't be certain as he might turn his nose up at them having skins on (plus letting him eat just chips probably isn't the best parenting). I guess there are no changing facilities around there either? Is there an M&S or John Lewis or something nearby?

    I've never booked a Nandos or a Wagamamas, always just walked in... Even with a dozen nerds in the middle of Edinburgh XD

    Cant speak for Nandos but the Waga near work is always rammed on the weekend. My Brother and I was lucky to get seated.

    M&S is about a 5-10 walk from The Kitchens area. John Lewis near M&S too.

    There's a Giraffe here too. Forgot about that.

    Have spoken to Hel and she seems to think the little Monkey will be ok at The Kitchens, there's other stuff around if it comes to that and we can always bring emergency rations just in case and as you say M&S and John Lewis are nearby we should be ok for changing.

    Everybody ok with that plan? Would it be worth heading straight there to avoid the crowds?

    me and Puru aren't fussy about where to eat. In fact I do have a policy on not making any decisions when it is to picking places to eat.

    Cool, the kitchens it is. Not sure if going early is needed or not, Seb what days have you been there and how busy has it been?

    Good choice Seb and Shaun, it's a decent price range for you too :)

    Will I need to be the guide to Spinningfields?

    I'll take your word for it ;)

    You always need to be the guide because I'm useless in my own city.

    Lol you speak the truth! :p

    I walk to and from Spinningfields every day cause of work so the route is progammed into me now but when I first started working there I got lost going back on my lunch hour on the first day lmao!

    Yes Puru that's the place :)

    I'll be walking there but I did used to get those free shuttles which do indeed take you right there. Got my Italy badge on Fitbit meaning I've walked that "far" so I aint stopping now mwahahaha!

    If you have a yellow card you get free chips and a drink from Bangers and Bacon (think that's what it's called). Tempting :)

    I'm ill as shit thanks to my room being well cold, like randomly oddly cold as the heating was on. Going to feed my cold sensibly and just have early nights but if I'm not well by Saturday, I'll come for food but then have to bail :(

    So it's decided, we're going to The Kitchens on Seb's inspired recommendation and Danielle is not to be trusted giving anyone directions. ;)

    We'll meet Carl and Gaby at the station, hang around for a bit (coffee maybe?), and then head to Spinningfields for 12. How does that sound?

    Sounds good to me. Since you guys are getting the shuttle though, it reduces the option on where to grab a drink. Nearest places are Costa, Starbucks and Pret. Costa's kind small as is Starbucks.

    I'll be power walking from Piccadilly. Watch me beat their shuttle mwahahaha :p

    Glad to hear you're coming. Would be wrong not to after you won the food choice hehe.

    I'm willing myself to get better now. I feel crap and have been sarcastically told I sound healthy lol. Why am I not in bed :(
