A Mother's Day Treat at East Gate Llanelli

I was recently invited to receive a Mother's Day treat of a day out at East Gate Llanelli. Naturally, I decided it should be a family affair so myself, hubby and the girls all headed there to enjoy some time out. I couldn't wait for a day off from my mum duties of cooking dinner etc.

We were catching a morning film, then having a family lunch before finishing off with some ice cream.

There's plenty of parking available which is next to the Travelodge. It's very reasonably priced but you can only put a maximum limit of 4 hours on a ticket so we had to pop back and get another ticket when our time ran out. It's literally a couple of minutes walk away from the facilities so that wasn't an issue for us.

As a family we love a trip to the cinema. Even little Ophelia enjoys it. Odeon always have a great choice of kids films as they have current films and also older films showing during their  kids screening times. We decided to watch 'Ballerina'. The girls had a children's box and a pic and mix whilst hubby and I enjoyed a coffee and a cake from Costa.
The film was actually really good. All of us liked it especially Eva. All she's been doing since is dancing and singing the songs from the film and asking to watch it again.

Next we headed to Red 10 American Diner. As it's name suggests Red 10 serves a range of American inspired food such as burgers, wings and fried chicken. 


The diner has a relaxed and informal setting which is ideal for family dining. The staff were all attentive and friendly. The girls were given paper and colouring pens to keep them entertained whilst waiting for their food. Families are definitely made to feel welcome here which is fab as I do find eating out with the girls can be quite a stressful experience. This was such a chilled out environment with plenty of lights, sounds and features to keep the kids occupied. 


There was a lot to choose from on the menu. After much deliberation I decided to have fried chicken, Eva had corn dogs and Ophelia had macaroni cheese. Hubby chose the sloppy Joe burger which was made with bbq pulled pork. All of us really enjoyed our food. Both girls shared their dinner with each other (a first, they normally don't share). What's great about the diner is that the portion sizes are huge. You certainly get value for money. 



The diner has a great deal on for Mother's Day. If you prebook your table then mum can eat for free. There must be one other full paying person so that you qualify for the free meal. You can book by calling 01554 777628 or visiting their facebook page here, Red 10. This is such a good offer and it's an ideal place if you are looking for a good family meal this Mother's Day.


Last up we headed to Joe's Ice Cream. With our bellies full from our lunch we were worried if we'd actually fit anything else in but there's always room for ice cream. There is a lot of choice at the parlour from a traditional ice cream in a cone or tub to something more special like a sundae or a north pole.


I shared a tub of ice cream with Ophelia. Needless to say she ended up eating most of it. Hubby had his own and Eva had an ice cream in a cone. As you can see from the pictures, she loved it.



Overall, we had a lovely day out. It was fab to relax for the day and enjoying being a mum with my family.

  3. That definitely sounds like a great day out and a lovely treat for you. It's always nice to be able to relax as a mum without having to worry about cooking and cleaning up afterwards. We're yet to venture to the cinema with BattleKid yet. Think it's time we took the plunge!
