"Hospital catering - Very Good"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

I'd like to commend Sunderland Royal Hospital on the food that I received while my baby son was an in-patient on the children's ward. I was breastfeeding him at the time and so I was provided with food during our stay over a weekend. I know hospital food in general has a bad reputation and so I thought it was important to make this positive comment. The food was nutritious, tasty, healthy and plentiful. I had choice and the steamed puddings with custard in particular were super! I was happy to complete a feedback form at the time but someone has just mentioned making a comment on this site, I thought it was worthwhile to do even though my stay was some time ago. Well done Sunderland, keep up the good work.
