The patient menus are rotated on a fortnightly basis and you can view the lunch and supper meals below.

Please choose from the menu when the trolley arrives, we will endeavour to give you your first choice. If you require a special diet and nothing is suitable on the normal menu please speak to a nurse or dietitian.

The information is correct as at March 2022.


Nut allergy advice

The food listed in these menus is prepared in an environment which may contain nuts: therefore we cannot eliminate the possibility of trace contamination in any dish.

A selection of hot and cold drinks is available with each meal and throughout the day with snacks.


Faith and ethnic meals

In addition to the main menu there is a range of meals available which can be ordered through the ward staff.



Continental breakfast will be served every morning with a choice of fruit juice, cereals, toast and preserves, yoghurt and fruit.
