At The Berkshire, 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 tea and cakes in the garden or a roast each Sunday, 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?
Yes, usually on special occasions. We have tea, coffee, fruit juices, and soft drinks available at every meal.
What provisions are made for residents’ birthdays?
We always try to celebrate residents’ birthdays, if they want to. The Chef will make a birthday cake for every resident in the home on their birthday and we’ll all sing Happy Birthday. Our Chef is very adaptable and is able to accommodate all situations and special events.
