Our 'home from home' dining experience

Dining at Ashwood House

The home has excellent catering facilities, overseen by our head cook Julie, who has been employed in Ashwood House for the past twenty years.  Our assistant cooks and kitchen assistants work closely with Julie to provide a wide range of menu choices.  We cater for residents who have special dietary needs such as diabetes. A strong emphasis is placed on residents’ choices as well as traditional home cooking and baking.

Our kitchen is regularly inspected by the Newtownabbey Environmental Health Department and has been awarded a continuous ‘Five Stars’ (The highest possible) for our kitchen and food preparation facilities. Click here to download a sample menu.
