Champneys Food Philosophy

Our philosophy is simple; at Champneys, it’s all about healthy, delicious and beautiful food. Steering away from all the fads and fallacies, we keep things honest and enjoyable. Bound by a commitment to the finest produce and seasonal ingredients, we strive for innovation, high quality service and memorable dining experiences.

We celebrate British heritage and embrace international influence; our menus are carefully crafted to encourage guests to make healthy sensible choices – choices that suit their specific needs. We consider dietary requirements, health conditions, religious beliefs, intolerances and allergies – providing nutritional information wherever possible.

Working to the principles of moderation, balance and variety, our chefs and nutritionists aim to educate and empower. When guests leave our resorts we want them to be in a position to manage their own diet and healthy eating habits beyond their stay.

We believe that wellness begins from within. Merging healthy eating with healthy living is a way of life at Champneys. A delight to the senses, our food is part of the experience – like a pampering treat, it serves as a reward. With diet and nutrition in our heart, we invite you to dine with us.

Beauty on a plate
Helping you achieve a balanced and nutritious diet
Individuals differ in how much food they need, but proportions of food from the different groups should stay the same. Our plates are marked to guide guests towards a healthy, balanced diet. Sections include Essential Fats (think walnuts and flaxseed oil), Fibre-Rich Carbohydrates (wholemeal pasta, brown rice and sweet potato), Healthy Protein (oily fish, lean meat and pulses) and Non-Starchy Vegetables (asparagus, beetroot, baby corn, broccoli and mixed peppers).

Weight Management doesn’t have to mean deprivation.

Nutrient dense rather than energy dense, low in calories (1200 kcal across 3 meals) but high in taste. Retaining the luxury, variety and excitement of Champneys food, our menus are expertly designed by our Nutritionists to make your weight loss journey both rewarding and enjoyable.
