At Wheaton Aston, 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 room is always set to restaurant standards, so residents need worry about nothing but enjoying the food.
Find out more about our dining facilities.
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 room always becomes a hub of conversation and laughter, which gives 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), although we prefer to have as much notice as possible. 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?
Sherry is occasionally served with meals, if requested by the residents, especially after Sunday lunch. Some of the residents enjoy a glass of wine, or a beer, on occasion.
What provisions are made for residents’ birthdays?
Residents’ birthdays are always marked if they want them to be. We usually decorate a birthday table with a cake made especially for the occasion.
