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.
