Plenty of choice for your girls
Our catering team work hard to prepare balanced, nutritious meals at breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Extra healthy or extra food?
Whether your Brownies & Guides are passionate about healthy eating or just need that little extra bit of re-fuelling, we have a fantastic self-service salad bar that offers a great range of delicious salad choices. We also have tasty, homemade soup for them to try and plenty of fresh fruit that they can take with them to keep them going between activity sessions.

If after all that, they still would like a little more, just ask one of our friendly catering team and we’ll be happy to provide extra food.

Catering to your needs
There may be girls in your group that have special dietary needs or some that are just choosy about what they eat. Whatever the requirement, our team will be able to provide a variety of alternative options to suit the needs of your group.

A pleasant dining experience
We take pride in keeping our catering facilities clean and well maintained. Our team work hard to ensure you have an enjoyable mealtime experience and will always give a warm welcome to your group.
