The menus have been devised to offer vegetarian, gluten and diary free options. Sorry we probably should have got Hothorpe to be more specific but I was having a fog day when I ok'd them to go out.
Each meal has three options. If you ask me which is lactose etc I can tell you
Re the kids diets...no we did not specifically create a kids menu. Its the same as adults (with three choices). I am not sure what you mean by kids menu other than that...do you mean chips etc? Hothorpe dont do chips, etc....its not really a 'chips' sort of place for food.
Re the garlic...I suspect it is in chilli.
The chef at Hothorpe has a 5 yr old daughter who is lactose, gluten free etc...so I thought we had struck gold this time.
The reason we did menus in advance was because last time normal eaters ate the diet food which left people like Sheppey without anything to eat!
The residential before that complaints were made over the fact that the food was repetetive and greasy...I know we are never going to please everyone with the food but we have done the best we could in advance trying to make sure people had real options...apart from the complaints that all the diet food had been eaten last time the general view was that the food was lovely.
