I was in East Surrey Hospital (Holmwood ward) in July 2012, and whilst the staff couldn't have been any lovelier the food was disgusting!
I must have gluten free food and for the first 3 days I didn't have the required red menu, I had to use the usual white one.
The sandwiches were awful I wouldn't have fed them to the birds, the bread was very thick and dry even though the slices had been spread very thinly with margarine. The main meals where vegetables had been included, I found the vegetables so hard that I couldn't eat them, the salad was just a plateful of lettuce with three quarters of tomato and three very dried cucumber slices, the tinned meat was slimy, salty and completely inedible.
But I suppose that was an improvement on my last admission to hospital where I was given cornflour gravy over my hot food which was absolutely disgusting not only to look at but also to eat, which I didn't, I went hungry that day.
