Therefore you will always have a varied choice of what you would like to eat. We will discuss any menu preferences or dietary needs you have on admission.
Meals are served in the dining room, or alternatively you can eat in your own room if you choose to do so. We would kindly ask of any visitors you have, not to visit between the times of 11.45 am and 1.00pm. This is so we can have a protected mealtime for all residents. However your guests are welcome to join you in your own room for a meal if they wish. We would ask for at least a day’s notice and a small charge would apply. Aside from the meal times hot or cold drinks and snacks are available any time in the day or night on request.
