What THIS vegan eats
We tend to visit Center Parcs about twice a year. To say it is vegan friendly is a massive understatement. All restaurants will cater to vegans if told upon booking. We have never had an issue going into DineIn (the on-site take away) and getting them to go through the allergen book with us. Even better there are separate vegan menus available in a number of the restaurants.
The separate vegan menus are at the restaurants they have on all the sites; Huck’s, Sports Café, and The Pancake House. You have to ask for the separate vegan menu as it is not kept out on the table, but they will know what you are talking about and get you it right away. The only issue we ran into was getting hold of a kid’s vegan menu at Huck’s Woburn, this was more of an issue with the member of staff than the restaurant itself though.
We tend to go to the sports café for lunch and Huck’s for dinner. Our last trip involved brunch at the Pancake House before we left too. For me the sports café is exactly my taste and my whole family love a bit of Tex-Mex making Huck’s fantastic for us. The Pancake House was a slight disappointment as the vegan pancakes were not as tasty as I make at home but I am glad we tried it.
The village shop has some vegan basics like Alpro milk and Pure spread. It obviously has (overpriced) fruit and vegetables and accidentally vegan products. They also sell lots of dry fruit and nuts and alongside them vegan sweets. Last time we went we had a look in the frozen section out of interest and noticed a few vegan ready meals too!
If you are going to one of the restaurant not mentioned above then you may need to give advance notice that you are vegan but all should be able to feed you. I do not have any pretty photos of the takeaways we have had but I have this one showing cheeseless pizza, curry, and chips (the chef said he could make us some differently and they came marked as vegan)…it tasted better than it photographs!
I have gone on spa days at Center Parcs too and if you call ahead they will cater to you. I was asked what my personal preferences were rather than expecting to eat what I was given. The food was really great too.
These are photos I took of some of the vegan menus. It should give any fellow vegans heading to Center Parcs reassurance that you will not go hungry there!
