Restaurant & Catering

The hospital has its own catering team led by our experienced chef. Together they take pride in creating mouth-watering cuisine every day. There is a daily published menu with several choices, each one healthy yet delicious.

The catering department interacts with consultant dieticians to create well balanced dishes for patients. A member of the team will be happy to visit patients to discuss any special dietary requirements.

While patients are normally served meals in their room, the self-service restaurant just off the main reception area serves staff and visitors.

In addition to the restaurant there is also a vending machine situated within the restaurant which serves chocolate, snacks and cold drinks.

Catering Department Philosophy

The Catering Department is responsible for the delivery of a comprehensive and high quality catering service to patients, visitors and staff.

Our staff are regularly trained and given opportunities to develop themselves both personally and professionally.

We at St Joseph's Hospital believe that our patient's nutrition is fully part of their treatment.

We have a duty and a responsibility to ensure that our patients are served nutritious, wholesome and safe food.

The ingredients used are sourced through a local supplier.  As much as possible seasonal local ingredients are used from strictly selected suppliers. 

All the meat used is farm assured as a welfare minimum standard.  We endeavour to use Welsh Beef and Lamb and free range woodland Pork from Douglas Willis, our local butcher's own farm.

All our eggs are free range from Country Fresh Eggs.

All our bread is made from British Flour to our own requirements by Acorn Bakery in Bettws.
