Caring with food

Our menus are updated on a weekly basis and according to the season; we strive to source local ingredients and use local suppliers where we can. Katie is happy to make dishes to order and like to get to know each resident in order to cater to their individual preferences and nutritional needs.

Our Chef’s challenge is to keep residents excited about coming to the dining table for their meals, every single day. Each dish is individually plated by Katie's team and presented to the highest standards. Drinks and snacks are freely available throughout the day, nothing is too much trouble here at The Laurels.
