We have been awarded the following accreditations by South Oxfordshire District Council:  5* by Environmental Health and a Gold Healthy Choice award.



We were awarded 5* by Environmental Health in October 2014 & 2016 and also a Healthy Choice award in April 2013

All our meals are prepared onsite using fresh ingredients, delivered daily from local suppliers where possible. There is always a vegetarian option and if your child is weaning or has other dietary requirements, we are happy to cater for these. We operate a 4 week rolling menu with different meals every day. This helps to ensure that children have a balanced diet and good level of variation. Please have a look our nutritionist’s website for further information.
