Their amorous display has fuelled rumours they are looking to give Prince George, one, a brother or sister.
Speculation has mounted after their recent move to the ten-bedroom country house, given to them by the Queen.
The source added: “A few diners went over and shook their hands as they left. They seemed happy to say hello.”

The love-struck royal couple held hands and gazed into each other’s eyes as they enjoyed a rare night out near their new home in Norfolk.
Locals at The Kings Head Hotel in Great Bircham could not believe their eyes as William and Kate, both 32, tucked into sea bream and shared an ice cream dessert after leaving Prince George, one, back at Anmer Hall, their country bolt hole.
William, dressed casually in a blue shirt, denim jeans and white trainers, held his wife’s hand as he ushered her to the bar at the Grade II-listed country house hotel just three miles from the Queen’s Sandringham estate.
William, who was driving, ordered a lime and soda while Kate, wearing cropped jeans, a black jumper and her trademark black wedges, sipped on a white wine spritzer as four bodyguards sat at an adjacent table.
Questions over child boss
THE woman who presided over the past five years of failure as the boss of children’s services at Rotherham Council is the same executive who removed three youngsters from their foster parents because those foster parents were Ukip voters.
Joyce Thacker, the Strategic Director of Children’s Services at the scandalhit council, is among the senior managers who are now under pressure to resign following the report into child sexual exploitation in the town.
Although she is not named in the report as being culpable for the failure to protect 1,400 abused children, as the head of children’s services since 2008 Mrs Thacker is among those whose positions are now under threat.
The report by Professor Alexis Jay found that child sexual exploitation had carried on largely unchecked between 1997 and 2013, the period she was asked to examine, but also “continues to this day”.
Nick Gibb, the Education Minister, said on Wednesday that those who made policy decisions which contributed to the scandal “should be held to account”.
Today we reiterate those calls. The care of vulnerable young children should never be left to chance. That is why only those with unblemished records deserve to shoulder the delicate responsibility of protecting our children from harm.
Royal date to remember
IT IS LOVELY to see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoying a rare “date” at a hotel close to their Norfolk home.
After all, they are a young couple with a toddler and will appreciate a quiet moment to enjoy each other’s company and, from all the hand-holding and gazing into each other’s eyes there seemed little doubt about their feelings for one another.
It is clear that Kate is William’s princess.
Prince William tries to go incognito in a cap and some stylish frames while arriving at Kings Cross Station with his pup Lupo in tow on Saturday (August 30) in London, England.
The 32-year-old royal was also joined for the trip by his wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (aka Kate Middleton), who also wore a plain clothes disguise.
Earlier in the month, it was announced that William had been employed by the East Anglian Air Ambulance and will donate his full salary to charity!
