delicious appetising menus, as good to eat as they are good for you

Since securing a place at St Margaret's [my Granny's] overall health has improved drastically. There is a genuine feeling of warmth and cheeriness as soon as you walk into the building. The staff are just wonderful, you can really see that they all have a genuine care for their residents. The activities are great fun, the rooms are bright, spacious and modern and the food is healthy and nutritious. I am absolutely delighted that my granny is a resident at St Margaret's, it is such a relief to know that she is finally now in safe hands.

Regulator Reports

Inspections are carried out at intervals determined by the inspectorate and homes are provided with a report, a rating and usually also some recommendations to help develop or improve the service. Any recommendations are acted upon promptly. No matter what the rating, it’s well worth having a chat with our team to get the latest on every aspect of our care and service. We’d be happy to talk through any questions you might have.
