Saxon Day Centre

Catering at the Centre

Our in-house chef and his team of kitchen staff provide a daily hot lunch which is made on the premises and caters, as far as possible, for the dietary needs of our clients. We also run a breakfast club and offer a take home sandwich service for clients who wish to participate. Our team also provides additional treats throughout the year, such as cream teas in June to mark Wimbledon fortnight.

An example of a lunch menu for a typical week is given below:

Monday:

Main: Minced beef cobbler with creamed potatoes, mixed vegetables and leeks

Dessert: Peach flan served with ice cream
