Great family day out

It was a great family day out - fairly good value for money and the animals all seem well looked after and happy.Louise, 10th February 2015


Here we have answered the common questions about Membership - both before and after you've joined.

Flask update – February 2015

Although it is nearly 2 years since our hot-drink flask offer expired and the number of flask holders has diminished, we are delighted that some are still in regular use.

In the intervening period Marwell Zoo has become even more popular and we are constantly reviewing our practises to see where we can speed up service to benefit all of our guests. We also want to ensure that everyone, whether flask owner or the wider majority of our guests, is able to obtain a hot drink as quickly as possible during their visit.

Therefore, as of Monday 23rd March, we are introducing some new guidance to help speed up hot drink service and better balance the needs of all of our guests.

What are the changes?

We will be introducing fully serviced ‘flask filling points’ at the following outlets:

  • Coffee Corner
    Inside the Gift Shop, open all year round.
  • Bushtucker Bites
    By the wallaby walkthrough. Open April - December + busier days in Feb, Mar & Nov.
  • Picnic marquee kiosk
    By tiger enclosure. Open on busier days April - October.

These outlets are, of course, available for all guests to use, but will be the only points at which flask owners can fill up. In order to reduce queues and delays, we regret that our other catering outlets will no longer be able to service flasks.

Each of the outlets listed above will display a large poster advertising them as ‘flask filling points’, to make it easy for flask users to identify them. We regret that we are not able to give flask owners priority over other guests, if queuing.

Can I still fill my flask at Café Graze?

At Café Graze, the self-service drinks machines will no longer be available for flask filling. If, as a flask owner, you wish to use your flask whilst purchasing a meal, we recommend that you fill it at one of the above outlets beforehand. Alternatively, you may of course purchase a drink with your meal.

Fair usage

We would also like to politely remind our loyal flask owners that flasks were sold for personal usage only. They should not be used as a ‘vessel’ for re-filling other drinks containers for friends and families. Our staff are monitoring frequency of re-fills to ensure that usage is appropriate.

We hope that this new service will ensure that whether you own a flask or not, we will be able to provide a faster, more efficient, drinks service for all of our guests.

If you do have any questions about where you can refill your flask, please don’t hesitate to ask any of the catering management team.

Whether you own a flask or not, don’t forget to take advantage of great special offers and meal deals at our catering outlets throughout the year.
