Dp and I are off to stay in a spa hotel today. According to the website, when we arrive at the spa, there will be light refreshments. What does this mean to you? Dp thinks we won't need lunch as it'll be sandwiches, cakes etc. I think it'll be more like tea and biscuits. Any thoughts? Don't want to ring the hotel or anything as it really doesn't matter, just a conversation we're having.
Maybe fruit, biscuits, pastries at a spa hotel. it's a tough one. You don't want to eat beforehand and miss out if there's plenty of it and it's really nice, but you don't want to go in anticipation of something filling, only to find a bit of fruit and a few biscuits.
But I find the phrases 'light refreshments' or 'light lunch' really weird because it invariably means crisps, cake, biscuits, sandwiches, sausage rolls etc so really carby, sugary and fatty and about as far away from 'light' as you can get so really easy to eat lots of calories without being particularly full.
Sorry but I agree with you there's no way it will be enough to get away with not eating lunch. It is likely to be some fruit, biscuits or crackers, those types of food. If they served a lunch they would advertise it as lunch as that sounds much better value than serving light nibbles.
