Meal Times

Hospital meals are prepared at the hospital by our own chefs who offer a varied choice of menu including vegetarian meals and special diets.  A new menu will be brought to you each day. 

Meals are served during the following times: 

Breakfast:   7.30am to 8.30am
Lunch: 12 midday to 1pm
Supper:  5.30pm to 6.30pm

You will be offered drinks and biscuits mid-morning, mid-afternoon and in the evening.  Some wards also have access to a communal fridge for patients to walk to and have a protein drink which will help patients to recover sooner.

St Mary’s Hospital has a number of options for patients and their visitors who would like something to eat or drink.  The Full Circle restaurant is on Level B and is open to patients who wish to take meals with their visitors.  This must be in agreement with your nurse and paid for on purchase.

View our Catering Services Information booklet.

The Restaurant is open from 7am, serving hot food from 7.30am until 3pm and again from 5.30pm until 7.30pm.
