Food at Lanercost House Care Home

Our Head Chefs have extensive experience catering for a wide range of specialist dietary requirements. Menus are developed in consultation with residents, so that we can cater to individual likes, dislikes and nutritional needs - and is changed with the seasons. We are proud of our hospitality service which delivers a high standard of snacks and drinks throughout the day. We have a dedicated hostess team to ensure a variety of drinks are present throughout communal areas and in residents' bedrooms. Special occasions, such as birthdays and anniversaries, are always celebrated with a delicious homemade cake. Our chef is happy to listen to any requests from residents and food is always a topic of conversation at our regular resident and relative meetings. Please check below for a sample of our menu:

Head Chef

I joined Lanercost House as a Head Chef in September 2022. I have more than 17-years of work experience as a chef. I worked in France, Italy, and Sweden in the hotels, pubs, cafes and restaurants. I am passionate about my job and every day I try to bring delicious and varied meals to Lanercost residents. I am a good team player and already built a great relationship, not only with hospitality team, but all the Home`s community. I enjoy being involved in the daily life here at Lanercost House.
