Food at Austen House Care Home

At Austen House we take food seriously! Our menu's are planned to offer a wide choice of delicious and nutritious meals and snacks, with staple favourites and tempting culinary offerings that are sure to suit the palette of everyone.

Our chefs meet with all of our new residents to fully understand their likes and dislikes and also work in partnership with our clinical team to ensure that we fully meet the dietary and nutritional needs of our residents.

In addition to our seasonally changing daily menu's at Austen House we also offer additional choices that are available everyday and will also endeavour to fulfil any special requests.

Additional light snacks are available throughout the day and night and we welcome visitors and relatives to join our residents at mealtimes. Please see below for our example menus.
