What kind of food can I expect?
Eating together is an important part of any holiday and we know how tricky it can be to please everyone in the family. PGL Family Adventures include breakfast, lunch and dinner; making food one less thing for you to think about.
We've worked closely with leading catering organisations to develop a simple, balanced menu, where even the fussiest eater should still feel comfortable - particularly after a busy day of activities. We provide three healthy, high energy meals per day that support the 5-a-day campaign and reduce added salt, sugar and fat where possible.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner will usually be served in the dining room, although at some centres there may be a barbeque on one evening during the week. We can cater for most diets (please let us know when you book), all meals will always include a vegetarian option and we will try to provide a taste of local cuisine whenever possible.
Tea and coffee are available with all meals and will also be available throughout the day, either in lounge or dining areas or to purchase at the bar. At some centres, tea and coffee making facilities are provided in your room.
With the exception of Dalguise and Bawdsey Manor (where there is wide range of local hostelries) our centres also have welcoming bar areas where you can purchase a wide range of drinks.
We source fresh regional produce whenever we can and you’ll always find a good selection of seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables on offer every day. The menu will always include a vegetarian option and we will try to provide a taste of local cuisine whenever possible. We aim to provide a balance of food which is familiar but also gives guests the opportunity to try food influenced by the area they are visiting. A range of salads are available at lunch and dinner time and fresh fruit is available at every meal.
Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and water are available with meals and in France a glass of wine will be included with your evening meal.
Meals will usually be served in the dining room, although at some centres there may be a barbeque on one evening. Guests canoeing down the Ardèche will stop at lunchtime for an alfresco lunch on a riverside beach and guests bivouacking over night in the Ardèche Gorge will enjoy a meal prepared by our staff in the outdoor cooking area at the campsite. If you are out and about enjoying an excursion at lunchtime then our catering team will provide a packed lunch for you to take with you.
We wish to work with all of our guests to provide a safe and enjoyable experience. We expect parents/guardians to supply any information in relation to food allergies and intolerances prior to travel. On site, we aim to give as much information as possible so guests can make informed food choices. At each meal time, allergy information will be clearly displayed for each dish (e.g. suitable for vegetarian, dairy free, gluten free etc). If guests are ever in doubt about a product or dish, we recommend they immediately ask a member of the catering team or their group leader who will speak with our catering manager for clarity.
We ask suppliers to provide nut free products. However some food items are made in factories that use these ingredients. We do not sell nut products in our shop.
