Food and Drink at the Ideal Home Show
The Ideal Home Show is the home of fabulous shopping but it's a big show and getting around it can be hard on the feet! Taking time out is a must, so why not do so over a sociable meal? You'll find everything from a full dining experience, to a simple ‘pit stop' for a quick snack.
There are bars and cafés at the show, where you can enjoy hot drinks, juices, smoothies or a glass of something stronger, sandwiches, snacks, or a full meal.
You'll be able to find all the bars, cafés and restaurants clearly marked on the Show Maps around the show, and also on the inside back cover of the official show guide.
