Any special dietary requirements are very important to put down on the booking form.
That includes vegan, vegetarian, nuts/lactose/gluten or any other, which we haven’t thought
of. We’ll then make you a personal Diet-ID card, to make sure, that we can identify and meet
the special requirements you may have.

available only for the ones who’s told us beforehand.
