Our food

kitchenLakeside pride ourselves on providing nutritious home cooked foods, we offer a wide variety of meals and welcome suggestions from individuals.

We offer selections of meals every day and are always happy to accomodate any dietary needs.

Our chefs are all trained to a very high standard, and each one brings their own unique skills into the kitchen. Our chefs are multi-cultural and we feel this allows us to offer some exciting and new dishes to our menu.

As well as providing the day to day menu, our chefs like to add in theme nights once a month offering a different cultural menu. They even decorate the dining room to give an authentic feel. Some of the themes are Chinese, Indian, Mexican, Greek, Italian, Thai and Cantonese. Obviously we still cook traditional British dishes as well.
