    "The food is extremely appetising, very generous portions and all diets are catered for"

Home Dining

At The Gables, we firmly believe that people ought to eat the food they enjoy. A dietician might pull their hair our but we continue to adhere to the view that the enjoyment of food takes preference over healthy eating though clearly the two options are not always incompatible.

We give food a very high priority. The main reason is, that it is one pleasure we can all enjoy, and secondly we have found that older people, especially when alone, just can't be bothered to prepare food for themselves so eating an appetising range of food is a vital aspect of feeling better.

All meals are prepared in the modern kitchen using fresh ingredients. Special diets are catered for and residents suggestions regarding the variety of the menus are encouraged.

Meals may be taken our elegant dining room, or in the residents own room if preferred. We at The Gables are exceedingly flexible and are more than happy to accommodate your routine. You may choose to continue your routine or adapt to life within our home.
