“It’s not the years in your life that count,
it’s the life in your years”

Whiteoaks prides itself on recognising that mealtimes are not only part of daily life and health, but that they should be enjoyed on a social level. With our elegant dining room, with views to the gardens, we feel that mealtimes should be pleasant unhurried and peaceful occasions for everyone, hence the reason for our protected mealtimes policy.

Our menu consists of a different meal every day. With an extensive breakfast menu of porridge, cereals, toasts and fruit. Breakfast is always served with tea, coffee and/or fruit juice. 

Our lunch and tea menu is always varied and seasonal with a variety of choices (a hot, vegetarian and salad option) both meals are served with a dessert. 

Lunch is the main meal of the day and is usually 3 courses (including a soup starter). There are always at least 2 options to choose from plus a cold salad option. 

The teatime meal is a lighter 2 courses and also offers 2 hot menu choices or a sandwich option.

Diabetic, gluten free and all special diets are also catered for.
