We pride ourselves on our kitchens at Cherry Blossom Care Home. Not only is good nutrition essential to health, but the enjoyment of freshly prepared food is a great pleasure of life.

We have a fully trained chef and catering team, providing locally-sourced, fresh, seasonal food – all prepared on site. Residents may choose from our extensive menu, including any particular favourites they may request. We cater for all dietary requirements whether it is medically required or by preference.

Residents are free to eat in the dining room or breakfast in bed may be an appealing way to start the day. Residents enjoy the company of others when dining in a relaxed environment where residents might share a glass of wine or discuss events of the day over after dinner tea or coffee.

Bistro and Bar is open from mid morning for quality snacks readily available to supplement regular meals if required.

The menus will be changed and reviewed on a regular basis by the home’s chef and homes management. Fine quality seasonal food is sourced locally. We will accommodate dietary requirements and residents will be offered choice of a varied daily menu

The kitchen staff are highly skilled and the chef engages the residents in creating the menus that are on offer. The kitchen staff are happy to receive suggestions and recipes from the residents and incorporate their recipes into the homes menus
