Mind, Body and Soul

Living well in later life


George Brooker House has two main dining rooms where residents enjoy mealtimes together. The rooms are light, airy and pleasantly appointed.  Both social settings provide a warm friendly environment where fellow residents can enjoy companionship, conversation and good food.

Our residents enjoy home cooked meals every day, freshly prepared by our professional catering team. Packet mixes and pre-prepared foods are excluded from our menus to ensure every meal is appetising and nutritious. Our varied menus offer a choice of dishes and incorporate a range of seasonal fruit and vegetables and fresh locally farmed produce. We pride ourselves on ensuring a quality dining experience for our residents.

The award winning catering team provide four varied meal services daily. Two homemade hot meals are served every day, at lunch and afternoon tea. Home-baked cakes and old style puddings complement traditional savoury dishes. Cooked English Breakfasts also feature on the weekly menu. Please view a sample of our appetising menu here.
