Vegan Mum Horrified By £9.99 Plant-Based Breakfast At Center Parcs

A vegan mum claims she was left horrified by the £9.99 plant-based breakfast she was served at Center Parcs. 

Jennifer Carr, from Scotland, was on holiday with her family at the Sherwood Forest holiday site when she ordered the vegan option on the breakfast menu. Unfortunately, it wasn’t up to her standards and says the meal was ‘shocking’.

The 37-year-old told The Sun: “I was really quite shocked. It was pretty small, so we had to order extra mushrooms, beans and tomatoes on top. I looked at it and thought, I’ve paid ten pounds for this. And we were starving afterwards.”

The £9.99 plant-based meal included a half piece of brown toast, a half-cooked tomato, one mushroom, a small portion of baked beans, two hash browns and four thin slices of red pepper.

Alongside this, she ordered a £2.99 coffee, as well as £1.49 extras of baked beans, mushrooms and hash browns.

The mum believes there should be a much wider range of vegan items on the menu, as she finds many in the supermarket.

She added: “We love the Richmond vegan sausages, so they could have added those or even just some extra mushroom and extra tomato would have been nice – even a bit more pepper.”

Jennifer insists the rest of the getaway was a great time for everyone apart. In particular, she appreciated the measures they had put in place to make people feel safe during the coronavirus pandemic.

Currently, Center Parcs is allowing customers to order their food through an app. As well as the meat cooked breakfast, people can opt for a vegetarian or vegan alternative.

Following the complaint, a spokesperson for Center Parcs commented: “This is clearly not up to our usual high standards and we apologise.

“We are in the process of reviewing our vegan offering and will be introducing new dishes very soon.”
