Dining at Kitwood House

Well-balanced nutrition can help significantly to promote, preserve and enhance the health and well-being of older and vulnerable people. All of our residents enjoy regular, nourishing meals made from premium quality produce supplied by Apetito and are prepared in our own kitchens under the supervision of our dedicated Head Chef. A wide choice of dishes is offered at each mealtime, and menus can be perused in advance so that residents can choose their preferred dishes before dining. Our Head Chef is also on hand to cater for special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries.

Meals are served in our bistro style dining rooms, but if preferred, room service is available 24 hours. Family members are welcome to dine should they wish to do so (there is a nominal charge per head, and we do ask for a minimum of 24 hours’ notice). If you’d like to try a sample beforehand, please do not hesitate to ask.

We have a relaxed (but common-sense) attitude to alcohol. Therefore, if you and your loved one enjoy a meal-time tipple, you can bring your own, or if you prefer, we can supply wine/beer on request (cost applicable). Tea and coffee are available at all times.
