All residents are given the opportunity to be involved in the creation of menus, in particular our vegetarian residents and those with specific dietary requirements. Our Head of Catering regularly visits Harbour House residents to ask about recipe ideas and favourite meals. We make sure that everyone is made aware of the day’s menu and the following day’s menu. This means that you can plan your meal for the next day without feeling under pressure if you want to choose something different. We always have a selection of menu options available and will support your requirements and choices. The kitchen prides itself in their use of their Aga and the cakes that are produced certainly support this.
At 0830 hours, a cooked breakfast is served in the dining room. Fresh fruit, toast and cereal is always available too. You are welcome to have breakfast on a tray in your room of fruit, toast, porridge or cereal.
A three course lunch is served at 1230 hours which consists of starter, a main meat or vegetarian option followed by dessert.
On Sunday, we provide wine with lunch. We actively encourage all residents to eat lunch in the dining room as this is an extremely social time for everyone at Harbour House.

Our domestic team is familiar with each individual resident’s specific room requirements and personal needs. They will work on a room plan with you when you arrive to make sure that they understand how you would like your room to be cleaned and the time you would like the cleaning to take place. This is to ensure that you feel comfortable and in control of your personal items and environment. You will have a key to lock your room.
The domestic team is passionate about recycling and will do this on your behalf.
All cleaning products used at Harbour House are environmentally friendly and our COSHH data is available should you require it. If you have any allergies or concerns about cleaning products, we will work with you to source an alternative product.
