Having talked about our hotel yesterday today it's time to discuss the food! We were on the Hotel Dining plan this gave us breakfast at the Deck restaurant and dinner either in the Deck or an option to swap to another one. Having enjoyed the simple dining plan with a wide range of buffet options in February it was interesting to see what more you got for the extra £7 a day.
I have to say with fussy children a big buffet option works really well as they can mix and match to their hearts content! The Deck also had some foods that were cooked fresh to order to add to the variety. It was a swisher looking place to eat too than the more basic restaurant - the children were pleased that there was a TV playing CBBC or Cbeebies (with subtitles) whilst music was played to the whole restaurant.
It was hard not to be a piggy when faced with so much choice! The first night the children went for simple burger, chips and peas whilst I went for something a bit more sophisticated:
The breakfasts were so good we didn't need to eat much at lunch time especially when we had early tea at 5. My children love bacon and sausages etc and enjoyed using the special child friendly meal trays to get their choices in:
There was a range of choices to suit all tastes and appetites and for a lighter option there were continental breakfasts:
For a change we opted to swap to Papa John's on our 3rd night. We all went for the pizza and pasta buffet with salad bowl. The children certainly got their money's worth including ice cream factory and I was very taken with my Tiramisu dessert:
