Catering (SWGC only)
For events with more than 16 players our on-site cafe facility offers a choice of three different lunch menu options starting from £5.00 per person per day.
It is strongly recommended that events with 24 players or more select the 'Food required' option for their event by selecting an appropriate menu choice. Booking food provides a discounted rate for meals and ensures the cafe is prepared and ready to service your event lunch.
Events that do not pre-book food may not be able to access the cafe during other event meal times and there could be a delay in serving their attendees Lunch. Booking Lunch is the cheapest and most efficient way to provide your event with lunch.
For events that book food, this is booked for all players in attendance or none at all.
Each menu has at least three hot food options available, one of which is always vegetarian and usually vegan.
Any dietary requirements i.e. food allergies, or any specific dietary requests, must be confirmed to The South Wales Gaming Centre no later than two weeks before the date of the event here.

A breakfast option, by direct purchase from the cafe, can be made available for events with more than 24 players attending and where a hot lunch has been booked if requested as a comment on the booking request form.
