At Emberbrook, we love our food
We firmly believe that when you eat well, you live well too. This is a core part of our brighterkind philosophy of care, centering on good nutrition and the importance of mealtimes as a social occasion.
Our dining rooms are always set to restaurant standards, so residents need worry about nothing but enjoying the food.
Each day our chef prepares restaurant-style meals combining variety with a balanced diet and an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients. Our residents get involved in helping to plan our menus, too.
The dining rooms always become hubs of conversation and laughter, giving even our more frail residents a chance to come together and socialise. Whether it’s an old favourite like shepherd’s pie or a special celebration for a resident’s birthday, we encourage our residents to make the most of living in an active and friendly environment.
Of course, when, where and who you eat with is entirely up to you. Friends and family can join you as often as you’d like (at a small charge), and our extras menu gives you the option to order snacks at any time of the day.
If you have any special dietary requirements or preferences, please let us know on arrival. We are happy to cater to your needs and wishes, however complex.

Is alcohol served with meals?
Wine is served if requested during the evening meal and there is always a variety of soft drinks on offer. Should a specific drink be requested by a resident, then we will always try to facilitate this. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and Horlicks are also always available.
What provisions are made for residents’ birthdays?
We always try to celebrate residents’ birthdays, if they want to. We will celebrate with a cake and have a Sunday Roast. Family members are also welcome to come in for special celebrations and all requests are catered for, depending on the special event. Recently we hosted a fiftieth wedding anniversary celebration.
