if you are short of space but have enough dining chairs to accommodate you all then I would suggest something like this: Fisher-Price Healthy Care Booster Seat: Amazon.co.uk: Baby (link not endorsed by FZ).
We were given something like this (not the FP one) and, as we had a Tripp Trapp I haven't really used it for Martha but visiting babies have used it and has been fine. My friend has twins and they eat in these (again not FP ones but not sure of the make).

Hi Cathy, we used the Phil & Teds Me too seat for weaning : Buy Phil & Teds Me Too Portable Highchair online at JohnLewis.com
It needs to clamp on to a table top though, would that work?

I'm cheap, so's IKEA. I got our second fab high chair from there and the pretty wooden one which matched our furniture (uncomfortable, impractical and useless) is sitting unused with a teddy on it!

We have 2 tripp trapps.... for ornaments currently...

We've been using the anti lop ones (as the ikea link above) and the girls love them.

Will move to the TTs when they are a little older.

only trouble with the ikea ones is that they can take up a lot of space if you don;t want them up all the time as they are non-folding.

Only 4 clicks and the legs detach.
We've slung ours into the car 3 or 4 times now when we've visited friends/family.

I find the legs easy to get back on, but a pain to get off. Although like Mr C, we take ours out with us. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it if you need to keep putting it up and down several times a day.

We've got a Tripp Trapp at home but Meg has used the antilop one from Ikea on 2 different holidays and it's fab, would definitely recommend.

We have the Antilop Ikea one which is fantastic and very portable but I know that Ikea also do relatively inexpensive folding ones too if space is a real premium. If its not too big an issue then the Antilop is a fab buy, excellent value for money and you can buy the tray if you need one xx
