All the food we offer you is freshly prepared by our staff that is well trained to provide for any special diets or needs you may have. Three meals a day, breakfast, lunch and tea are served in the main dining room, but if you prefer to eat in your room this can also be accommodated.

Drinking enough fluids is very important for physical and mental health to help you stay alert, stable and able to take part in all the activities on offer, so we encourage drinks throughout the day.

The chef meets with the residents on a regular basis to ask for their views on the food and drink service. Morning and afternoon tea, coffee, biscuits and cake are served every day. Further drinks and light snacks are also available from the snack menus.
