Food

Our chef prepares all meals from scratch using local suppliers wherever possible. Our chefs ensure that residents enjoy nutritious and delicious choices at every meal, from the option of a cooked breakfast each morning through to a three-course main meal every day.

All our menus are individually designed to meet all dietary needs and preferences making sure everyone is encouraged to eat well and keep their fluids topped up so they stay healthy and happy.

We are keen to learn all about your unique dietary needs and favourite foods (as well as the things you’re not so fond of) so we can make sure that there will always be plenty on the menu to tempt you.

Meals can be taken in our delightful dining room or quietly in your own room. We encourage people to invite family and friends to stay for lunch or tea which can be enjoyed in the dining room or privately in the visitor’s room if you choose. In summer it is nice to make the most of the weather and enjoy eating in the garden. Complimentary pre-lunch sherry or wine can be taken in the conservatory, at the table in the dining room, or on a tray in your room.

 

Our Chef Manager will visit you when you first arrive to ask you about any preferences you may have. His team of chefs are happy to provide anything that you might fancy to eat. If it is not on the menu we can pop into town for you.

 

We understand that meal times can sometimes be the highlight of someone’s day and it is very important to us that our food is of a high quality. We cater for special diets and will adapt to your needs. If you require help to read the menu or manage your meal, there are staff ready to help you.

Testimonials

My husband has been in Riverside Nursing Home in Sherborne for five months now. He took a few weeks to settle down in his new surroundings at first but now has got to know the Staff. The Nurses, Carers, the Chef, all have been so kind, respectful, most of all understanding the needs of not only the residents but their families. Only recently we enjoyed an outing to Weymouth organised by the Activities Co-ordinator. Matron Judith Maidment waved us off as our special coach left Riverside. Thank you all
