Eating and drinking

All our restaurants, cafés and snack bars are family friendly and have tasty, freshly-prepared food. You can find healthy, vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free options too.

As well as great kids' menus and activities, there are high chairs for babies and dedicated space for push chairs.

Our food and drinks are carefully sourced, our coffee fairly traded and we only use British organic milk. We're always looking for new ways to reduce our impact on the environment.
