Fine Dining

Dining at The Porterbook is very important to us, which is we have an in-house chef and team who create the finest meals using quality ingredients. Every meal is made with our residents’ nutritional requirements in mind, and we go to great lengths to ensure our menus are varied and to everyone’s taste. While we encourage residents to enjoy their mealtimes in one of our beautiful dining rooms, residents can also eat their meals from the comfort of their own rooms if they prefer; the option is truly theirs. Thanks to our private dining room, we can also accommodate loved ones for dinner, for those moments you want to celebrate altogether.
