Food & drink

Do you enjoy good food?

At Porthaven, we do. Not only is good nutrition and hydration essential to health, the enjoyment of freshly prepared meals also assists with the physical and mental well-being of our residents.

Porthaven works with John Wood, a leading international restaurant consultant and former Michelin-starred chef, to help us train our kitchen staff and produce delicious, well-balanced and nutritiously appropriate food.

Every Porthaven home has a fully trained head chef and catering staff, providing locally sourced fresh seasonal food, suitable for the individual dietary needs of each of our residents. With a different menu every day, every resident has a choice of what they would like to eat, including a selection of special favourites.

It’s not just breakfast, lunch and dinner. Morning coffee and cakes, and afternoon tea are also served, with fresh fruit and high energy snacks readily available to supplement regular meals if required, as well as plentiful fresh water, fruit juices and other drinks to ensure good hydration which is an important part of many of our residents’ lives.

Whilst some of our residents eat in their own rooms, most of our residents enjoy the company of others when eating, which is why all Porthaven homes provide restaurant service in our dining rooms, where our residents dine with new friends, and discuss the varied events of the day.

In keeping with Porthaven’s commitment to excellence and to ensure our residents ‘live well in our care’, our wine is supplied by Berry Bros, England’s oldest wine merchant, for those residents who enjoy a glass or two whilst dining, or indeed at any other time.

We also encourage family and friends to enjoy the dining experience at Porthaven. Every Porthaven home has a private dining room for use by our residents, and their friends and families. Whether it’s for a birthday celebration or other special occasion, our chefs are always pleased to cater for private events at our homes.

If you want to see how good our chefs are, or if you would like to find out more about your nearest Porthaven home, and whether we can help care for you, or your loved one, please call any of our homes and arrange for a visit at your convenience.
