Award-winning food and drink

Dining is such an important part of daily life at The New Deanery and we know how important high quality food and drink is to our residents.

Our award-winning team, which received The Care Home Nutrition and Hydration Award at The Great British Care Awards’ East of England Region 2015 for its outstanding approach to food and drink, provides first-class dining as part of our all-inclusive packages.

Working with our residents

Head Chef, Paul Westall and his team create a broad menu of delicious and nutritious, home-cooked food and drink, working closely with each resident to ensure they get fantastic meals, snacks and drinks to fully support their overall health and well-being.

Our recent CQC report praised the food at The New Deanery, with the inspector stating: “The catering was responsive to individual preferences and needs with care and attention paid to presentation of food and people’s individual needs such as a soft diet.  CQC report August 2016

Catering to your requirements

The catering team has regular trips to the supermarket to pick up people’s favourite foods and if you fancy a glass of wine or a beer with a meal that’s no problem, as alcoholic drinks are included in our all-inclusive packages.

The New Deanery’s most recent CQC report said: “People at The New Deanery were facilitated to eat well and enjoyed the food that met their individualised needs and preferences.” CQC report August 2016
