Dining Services at Lakeside Care Home

Dining is important to us all not least the elderly. Our chef knows how to tempt jaded palates with a variety of daily menus based on English cuisine prepared with locally sourced ingredients. In addition to breakfast, lunch and dinner (all with a choice of menus and drinks), fresh fruit and snacks are available throughout the day. All special diets are catered for together with individual requests, where possible.

Mealtimes are an important part of daily life. Our chefs offer a different menu with choices for each day of the week which change with the seasons. Our chefs always use fresh, locally sourced ingredients to prepare delicious, nutritionally-balanced meals.

Dietary and medical conditions

If you are vegetarian or vegan, on a medically-advised diet to manage a health condition, have food intolerances or Religious restrictions and cultural tastes, your dietary needs, will be catered for. Shortly before you move in, we’ll chat to you about your needs and put together menus that meet your tastes and preferences.


We serve tea and coffee with all our meals together with snacks, which are available throughout the day and night. Cold drinks are also available and fresh water squash is placed in your bedroom daily.

Wine, beer and sherry are usually offered with our evening meals and you’re welcome to sit and enjoy a drink with your visitors. We are happy for you to bring alcoholic drinks into Lakeside as long as there isn’t a medical reason why alcohol should be avoided.
