Dining at St Davids
Mealtimes are an important part of daily life at St David's. We pride ourselves on the quality of our food and the choice available to residents daily, with menus carefully designed with nutrition in mind.
We promote individual wellbeing through a positive and enjoyable dining experience; every resident has the opportunity to eat in our bright and welcoming dining room and we offer full support with eating and drinking if needed so they remain hydrated and well-nourished. Our residents are also welcome to take their meals in their own room or in one of our beautiful spacious lounges if so desired.
We offer freshly cooked, appetising and well-balanced meals to ensure the highest level of nutrition for our residents. Our Chef, Andrew uses fresh ingredients to prepare a range of delicious, wholesome meals in our kitchen, supported by our Senior Catering Assistant, Sean and our team of kitchen assistants.
The team consults with residents on a regular basis in liaison with our care team to ensure they understand their nutritional requirements and food preferences so our residents can maintain a diet they enjoy. Andrew carefully plans our menus, which are changed regularly, to ensure each of our residents enjoy a variety of delicious dishes every day of the week. Sample menus can be viewed and downloaded below
The preferences of our residents are always taken into account, which means classic and traditional meals often feature alongside various world cuisines on our menus. We hold themed food days in addition to our normal menu along with hot pot suppers for our residents’ families to book to dine with their loved ones.
We know how important events such as birthdays are to each individual resident, and Andrew has created some wonderfully designed cakes for our residents over the years, you can view a selection of these marvellous creations and some of our freshly cooked meals in the gallery below.
Andrew and his team are committed to making mealtimes a sociable and enjoyable part of each day. Our policy for St David's is set to provide those staying with us with fresh, home-cooked food, to ensure nutrition and diet are never forgotten and they are given the opportunity to eat alongside fellow residents for a key point of socialisation throughout the day.
The day starts with a choice of cereals, porridge, toast and preserves, fruit and either a hot drink of tea, coffee, or hot chocolate and a selection of juices and cordials. Throughout the day, residents will be offered tea, coffee, and snacks such as biscuits and cakes or fruit. A choice of dishes are on offer at lunchtime. In the evening, each resident can choose from a selection of sandwiches and soups, along with fruit and desserts. Evening and night time snacks and hot and cold drinks are also available.
