Food

Healthy, happy dining at PGL
Our food is nutritious, freshly-prepared and most of all – delicious! We have lots of choice for your group too.

Because mealtimes are an adventure too!
Whether they’re choosing their favourites from our self-service salad bar, trying out the soup of the day, or picking up some fresh fruit to take with them for a challenging day ahead, Brigades and Cadet groups love mealtimes at PGL.

More food? No problem!
We want your group to leave our dining room full up and with a smile on their faces! We always have more food for those with hearty appetites and we can cater for a range of special diets too.

Relax at mealtimes
Mealtimes are a great opportunity for your Brigades or Cadets to relax, have fun together and swap stories about the day’s adventures. Our dining facilities are spacious, well-equipped and our friendly staff will always be on hand to maintain the highest levels of cleanliness to ensure it’s a pleasurable dining experience for all.
