The Home benefits from commercial-scale catering facilities, with a team on-site who specialise in preparing food for a variety of dietary requirements. We aim to provide nourishing, nutritional food, 'home cooked' whenever possible. The kitchen complies with all environmental health regulations and is rated as '5 star' (highest achievable) by the Food Standards Agency.
There is a four-week rotating menu which varies throughout the year. Details of each week’s menus are displayed on the notice boards. Special diets, favourite dishes, religious and cultural diets are all catered for so if you have any specific needs please advise the Nurse on duty. If there is something you do not like or cannot eat, the kitchen will be happy to produce an alternative for you. The kitchen will also make a birthday cake if you wish to celebrate an occasion or birthday. Meals can be served in the dining room and also from the comfort of your room.
Hot and cold drinks are also available throughout the day and night - please just ring and ask. Your visitors are free to make drinks in the quiet lounge on ground floor. Fortified smoothies and meals can be made for residents who need assistance with maintaining or losing weight or for those who need to put on weight.
