Dining in a Communal Setting
Enjoy a Restaurant Dining Experience
Dining In, Hawthorns Style!
Our dining rooms have become the communal hubs of our retirement communities, with plenty of chatter over freshly prepared meals that have been prepared by award-winning chefs, bringing together a vibrant atmosphere.
Other retirement villages may charge extra for meals, leaving residents to sit alone in their kitchenettes and their restaurants empty. However, at The Hawthorns all your meals are included so you can relax at mealtimes and enjoy being sociable with your fellow residents. We think being in good company is just as important as the meal itself, so choose your favourite seat or move around each day and enjoy our restaurant-quality food being served straight to your table.
At lunch and dinner, we provide three courses. Of course, we also offer choices at every meal to suit all tastes and dietary requirements. Fresh fruit and tasty homemade biscuits and cakes are always available throughout the day should you wish to indulge a little.
We use a thoughtful approach to developing our menus, ensuring they are nutritional and appetising. Our menus reflect the time of the year, using seasonal produce that is locally sourced where possible, giving variety and balance to each meal. We even grow our own herbs to give that extra special garnish to our dishes. We receive daily deliveries of food from a cross section of local providers, ensuring that we are always serving only the freshest of meals.
Our highly motivated and experienced culinary teams are trained in culinary and food safety and their skills are continuously developed through a variety of courses and workshops. We only use the best in catering resources and have excellent food and safety awards from local councils. All of our Head Chefs are extremely passionate about food so you can be certain that our dishes will always be exciting and high quality.
