We’re back with another gluten-free travel guide today and this time it’s a gluten and dairy-free guide to Legoland.
Last month, we went to Legoland for the second time and this time we stopped in the Legoland adventure hotel too.
So in today’s blog post, I thought I would give you my tips and tricks for going gluten and dairy-free it’s Legoland, and if you’re stopping at the Legoland Hotel and wants to eat gluten and dairy-free there.
Overall, we were really impressed with the gluten and dairy-free options at Legoland and wanted to give it a dedicated blog post to reassure you not to worry if you are going.
Where can you eat gluten and dairy free at Legoland?
In terms of gluten-free options in the Legoland park itself, there’s only one for a proper sit-down meal is City Walk Pizza and Pasta.
This is a buffet restaurant similar to Pizza Hut where you can sort of fill up on as much pizza and pasta as you like as well as salad.
In terms of buffet options, there’s not much for gluten-free although they do have potato salad that was actually dairy-free and gluten-free when I looked on their website in advance (see their allergy info here) and of course, the things like salad were marked as gluten and dairy-free but there’s a risk of cross-contamination there.
However, what was brilliant was that they made me a special pizza. You could pick from a gluten-free base, whatever toppings you want, and they also did vegan cheese. Although this doesn’t look the most appetising. It was actually really nice! And with pre-booking discounts worked out about £15 which wasn’t ridiculously expensive given its size and that we’re in a theme park.
Around the park, there wasn’t a huge amount of other options. By Lego Duploland there is a cafe with a Costa, there were dairy-free options there in terms of hot drinks, and there are a few gluten-free snacks like crisps. As you leave/enter the park at the front entrance, there’s the Lego shop that also sold different snacks and there was quite a few different gluten and dairy-free options there like naked bars and Hippeas. Finally, we also noticed that the Ben and Jerry’s which is opposite the cinema also had dairy-free ice cream, but unfortunately, they only had the one flavour that had gluten in so just sharing that if you’re dairy-free or not gluten-free,
What gluten free options are there at Legoland Hotel?
So this was our first day at the Legoland Hotel, and we had a really really great time and were overall really impressed with the food there. To be honest, the food in the hotel was not as great as the food in the park. So if I was to go back again, I probably think about delivering food in as when I went on Deliveroo and Uber Eats because it’s based in Windsor, there were quite a few different options that could cater for gluten-free if you were thinking of a gluten-free takeaway and having it delivered to the hotel.
Also, last time we were in Windsor, we visited Honest burger in Windsor which is only about a 15 to 20-minute drive from Legoland. We parked just in Windsor Town Centre and just walked up and ate there opposite the castle.
If I was to do that, I’d probably go back there as it was really great meal and honest burger has amazing options for gluten and dairy-free.
You can see more about that in my Gluten-Free Windsor guide; and another option is The Prince Albert pub which is really near to Legoland and caters to gluten-free.
In the hotel itself, there’s the option of eating at the Bricks restaurant and they do claim to cater for gluten and dairy-free however, it was £24.99 for three courses, and I looked online, there was only a couple of options for each course and no option for dessert. It just seemed really expensive after we’d eaten at the park already and had quite a big meal.
So we went down to the Skyline Bar and they didn’t have a lot of options for gluten-free but they did do me gluten-free fries. After a busy day, the fries were okay although a little bit expensive.
Do they cater to gluten free at Legoland’s hotel breakfast?
Our experience in the Bricks restaurant for breakfast was much much better. So they had loads of gluten-free options. I think there was only one thing that they couldn’t do gluten-free for the English breakfast, but I managed to have gluten-free sausages, bacon, beans eggs, and gluten-free toast which is also really good as well.
So I was really surprised because I was expecting not many breakfast options but I managed to have a full English that was also dairy-free.
Overall, I think there are enough options for being gluten and dairy-free of Legoland. Of course. Another option is to just take your own food which is what we did last time and Legoland has no problem with that. But if you are in Legoland. I also didn’t realise how close the Legoland hotels are to Legoland park, so you could also just walk over to the hotel and use their facilities if you just wanted some gluten-free chips or a gluten-free breakfast. We can’t wait to go back and I hope you found these travel guides useful. Let me know if you’ve been and what you’ve eaten there. If you’re gluten-free too?
