Planning a family meal, romantic dinner for two or need a quick bite to eat between activities? With a range of restaurants across each village, there’s sure to be something to tempt your tastebuds at any time of day. Read on for your ultimate guide to where to eat during your Center Parcs break.

Breakfast and brunch

Wakey wakey, rise and shine! If you’ve got a big day ahead, head to Sports Café to fuel up with our famous Champions Breakfast (not for the faint-hearted!) or visit Foresters’ Inn for a Full English Breakfast. If great coffee is the only thing that gets you going, then pop into Starbucks for your caffeine fix and treat yourself to a flaky pastry on the side.

If you’re feeling fancy, start your day with a delicious Eggs Benedict or Eggs Royale at Café Rouge – or keep it traditional with the classic Center Parcs brunch, a stack of pancakes at The Pancake House.


Feeling peckish after a busy morning? Why not enjoy pizza or pasta at Bella Italia, pancakes at The Pancake House or taste the flavours of France at Café Rouge? Start your break with a tasty lunch on arrival day or make sure your little ones have been fed before the drive home with American and Mexican favourites at Huck’s American Bar and Grill – open for lunch on Mondays and Fridays at Elveden Forest, Woburn Forest and Sherwood Forest.

For a leisurely and laid-back lunch, drop into Dexter’s Kitchen, Sports Café, Foresters’ Inn or Lakeside Inn, or refuel with a coffee, sandwich and sweet treat from Starbucks. For hot food on-the-go in between activities, you can get chicken, chips, pizza and pasties from the hot food counter at ParcMarket.

Everyone knows swimming makes you extra hungry! If you’re in the Subtropical Swimming Paradise around lunchtime, grab a bite to eat from Canopy Café and Bar and get straight back to the rides, slides and splash pools afterwards.


After a fun-filled day of adventures, get everyone around the table to relax and share stories about your day together. If you’re feeling adventurous, take your tastebuds on a trip to India at Rajinda Pradesh, taste the flavours of the States at Huck’s American Bar and Grill or try exciting fusion food from Latin America at Las Iguanas. Enjoy classic French cuisine at Café Rouge, or authentic Italian dishes at Bella Italia or Amalfi – or for a relaxed family meal, head to Sports Café, Lakeside Inn or Foresters’ Inn.
