At Darwin House we pride ourselves on our 5-star Menus which are created to provide a well-balanced and nutritional diet whilst taking into consideration individual tastes and preferences. Our qualified chefs draw inspiration from traditional dishes to classic recipes, using fresh ingredients with the emphasis on providing delicious, seasonal meals.
We recognise that eating is a social experience and our restaurant-style dining room is designed to create a relaxed and happy atmosphere. We make a point of celebrating birthdays and special occasions as well as festivities and arranging theme days such as our popular ‘1940s’ day. Residents are served 3 meals a day, as well as mid-morning drinks and afternoon tea, with a choice of continental or traditional English breakfast and we are justly proud of our desert trolley! “Good food is the foundation of genuine happiness”-(Auguste Escoffier)
