Food and Nutrition

Catering for all types of dietary and nutritional needs, using fresh, local produce.

Drumconner is well known for its cuisine and the food it provides residents. We are proud to be able to offer two highly qualified hotel standard chefs in Lancing and one in Bournemouth, serving a daily choice of menus with multiple options of excellent cuisine, and catering for all dietary needs. Both chefs have significant qualifications in catering including the needs of those with special diets. Our house chefs are available to discuss your dietary and menu preferences with you.

Most ingredients are sourced locally to provide a consistently fresh and high standard. The local butcher, fishmongers and grocers all look to deliver daily whatever the chef requests for both planned and requested meals.

Menu choices by residents are completed on a daily basis but don’t worry if you change your mind, chef will make you something you choose if he can. If you need help with eating, carers are ready to assist.
