We went half board on an adult week end in Minehead last June.
We all thought the food was very good.
We were silver and it's a big open canteen style area.
Think there were about 3 sections, but each had the same so no big queues.
Lots of choice at breakfast Porrige yogurts toast full english etc
Dinner a few selections, salads, baked pots couple of main meals. I like to mix and match which you could do.
If you didn't like something you can go and get something else.
Also I think if youre half board your nearer the food so nearer the main complex, we were. only 3 rows back.
Down side was we didn't have a living room, we hired a mini fridge for the week end for the morning coffee!!!
