Intrepid Meeple's Board Game Retreat

Culinary Delights

All the remarkable catering at our board game retreat is created by experienced chefs Alex and Dana of Saffron. We endeavour to give you a different culinary experience every day with a mix of healthy, tasty and decadence in mind. The food is as adventurous an experience as the games you will be playing. Hopefully you will be introduced to new flavours in a unique environment as depending on the itinerary some meals may be themed. Most dietary requirements can be handled without compromising your enjoyment. Vegetarian, vegan, intolerances? No problem, contact us and we can discuss and plan.

Table lay for lunch at retreat

Start the day with a buffet, hot plate and smoothie! Good coffee and a selection of teas.

The buffet will include breads, cold cuts, cheeses, fruits, cereals and more!

Additionally, each morning, you will be served a different hot plate such as avocado toast with poached eggs and chilli flakes, shakshuka, breakfast burritos, full English, spinach and goats cheese frittata to name a few.

Every breakfast will be accompanied with a different smoothie to kick start your day of games and adventure!


Due to groups finishing their games at different times, lunch is also served buffet style to accommodate. Various salads perfectly match the day’s dishes such as chicken kofte kebabs, cured salmon, charcuterie platter, empanadas, Potato latkes and more.

If an excursion spans the lunch period, then a packed lunch will be provided suitable for your adventure.

All day refreshments

With all this wonderful food you certainly won’t go hungry. But if you do fancy a little refreshment and bite then don’t worry, we have you covered. Home made biscuits, fresh fruit and even some freshly carved jamon with a hot or cold drink are always at hand to keep you going.

Afternoon Tea

Take a break, switch games or just consider your tactics while enjoying some homemade cake. Yep, you guessed it, a different one each day!

This is when we will all sit together and review the day’s events over a fantastic 3 course meal. We won’t spoil the surprise by telling you what those meals will be, but to give you an idea, flavours will include BBQ, Oriental and Mediterranean with various fresh meats, fish and vegetarian dishes.
