We have a varied menu to provide heathy, nutritious and tasty meals with special celebration meals and a vegetarian option is always available.  Special diets such as diabetic are catered for.  Our main meal is at 5pm with drinks and snacks brought round mid-morning and mid-afternoon, a light lunch is at noon and suppers are served in the evening.  If a resident requires snacks or drinks at any time during the day or night, our staff are on hand to help accomodate these requests.

All our food and drink is prepared on site, many from scratch, by our trained and qualified kitchen staff.  All meals at Charnley House are prepared with the resident in mind and include various options for every meal, as we strive to make sure food is nutritious, filling, tasty and pleasing to the eye.

Residents are encouraged to eat socially in the dining room since this tends to be a great get-together for residents and staff.  However, we appreciate that some residents may request or require quieter meals or assistance and this is always provided.
