What is the difference between the Brasserie and the Food Court/Kitchen?

The Food Court is available on our Short Sea and Irish Sea routes (excluding Liverpool-Dublin) and is all about hearty, traditional family favourites such as fish & chips or a delicious curry and also includes snacks, sandwiches and other chilled options. 

The alternative to this on our North Sea routes is The Kitchen. You’ll be spoilt for choice with the wide range of flavours this restaurant offers from around the world. Your waiter will take your drinks order at your table and let you know about the Chef’s Specials and Soup of the Day. Then you’re free to help yourself to all the tasty meals on offer. 

Whatever the occasion, make your journey special with a fine dining experience at The Brasserie on our North Sea route. Relax with a glass of chilled white or a luscious red wine, and take in the sea view from our comfortable dining room, as our waiters serve you a delicious meal. Our Brasserie à la carte menu offers something for all tastes and appetites, so if you’re after a light bite or a three course dinner, The Brasserie is the perfect way to start your journey in style. We also offer a Brasserie kids menu.

Our Club Lounge** also offers a range of light bites and snacks such as a Cream Tea For One, Rare Roast Beef Open Sandwich or Antipasto, as you relax in comfortable, peaceful surroundings with complimentary refreshments and newspapers.
*Please note: The Brasserie will be closed until 6th August 2021*

**Please note that the Club Lounge is only available on our Short Sea and Irish Sea routes and menu options vary by ship and by route.
