• Mealtimes

            Mealtimes are a really important part of the day. Here at Wellcross Grange, our aim is that everyone should receive nutritionally balanced, tasty food and really enjoy their meals.

            Our qualified and experienced Chef, Biju, provides a great variety of appetising and well-presented home-cooked meals, using fresh ingredients which are locally sourced whenever possible. The menu is created with input from residents; after all it is their home. It encompasses a blend of traditional cooking with some exciting ethnic dishes. We are always happy to cater for special diets and personal preferences, and love nothing more than celebrating birthdays and other special occasions. Family parties can always be arranged. When weather permits, we enjoy a barbeque or buffet in the garden where staff, residents and their guests gather to enjoy a tasty social event.

            For breakfast residents have a choice of fruit, cereal including proper porridge, toast or a cooked breakfast, served with tea or coffee and fruit juice. At lunchtime, there’s a three course meal with a choice of two hot dishes daily. And a light supper is served every evening. Throughout the day snacks and hot drinks are available, with home-baked cakes in the afternoon. Each Friday residents enjoy a glass of sherry, and wine is available during the weekends. Most of our residents choose to eat their meals in the bright and welcoming dining room, although for those who prefer to eat in their own room we’re happy to accommodate this. And if anyone needs assistance with eating, we’ll gladly help.
