Good dual purpose/table bird?

Looking to get a flock set up and planning ahead. Wondering what are good chicken breeds to consider for meat birds? Happy to consider a mix of breeds in flock. Have small children so would prefer breeds with easy temperament especially if we keep cockerels with them. And would I be better getting hatching eggs or PoL birds?
All advice welcome. Many thanks.
