Food and Nutrition are very important to us at Hilton Lodge. All our food is produced using only the best fresh seasonal produce from our local community suppliers.

All dietary requirements can be catered for by our experienced chefs and alternatives and options are always available to suit choices and preferences of the individual. While residents may choose where to eat their meals we would encourage making mealtimes a social gathering with many of our residents enjoying eating together in the dining room. Should residents require it, staff are available to offer a helping hand with meals to ensure the residents nutritional needs are met.
