Real Home Cooking & Appetising Menus

Included in our holistic approach at Fonthill House, is restaurant quality food prepared by our team of chefs. Everything is freshly prepared each day and we source as much produce as possible from St Albans and the surrounding area. We work with dietitians and nutritionists to create appetising menus which can be tailor-made for each guest. Freshly caught fish, the finest meats, nutritious smoothies and juices all help to improve well being, health and vitality.


From wine & canapés at 400ft to playing piano at the Ritz, Fonthill House goes the extra mile to ensure our residents enjoy their stay. A trip to the London Eye, tea at the Ritz, weekly drinks at St Michael’s Manor — Fonthill House is no ordinary care home. High profile visiting speakers, yoga and art classes are all just part of our full weekly programme of events.

Music Lounge

Our music lounge is host to a variety of live musical performances, including talented (brother and sister) musicians Edmund and Elisa Jeffery. On Monday nights our choir, the Fonthill Nightingales, get together for a very relaxed sing-a-long. The U3A (University of the Third Age) host monthly classical music appreciation meetings where residents can spend the afternoon enjoying the music followed by a discussion.
