Free Tasting session - Autumn school dinner menu

10th May 2019

Friday, 10th May between 3.15pm and 4pm


We would like to take this opportunity to inform you of the changes within the kitchen at Orchard Vale.


From September, Orchard Vale’s kitchen will be managed by our Ventrus Executive Chef, Rob Stevens.


Rob has many years’ experience in kitchens and is really looking forward to working with you and the children to create some fabulous, healthy food along with improving the current food provision at the school.


How will the changes in the kitchen benefit the parents and children?


  • The lunch service will stay the same
  • Access to a healthy, nutritious menu prepared on site tailored to the children
  • Fresh local ingredients
  • Daily salad and pasta bar
  • Regular new menu tasting sessions
  • Regular parent surveys

Our mission is to provide a unique dining experience that is innovative, aspirational, quality assured and excellent value for money.


We can assure you that our ingredients are responsibly sourced, where possible locally; no ifs, no buts our menu ingredients are freshly prepared at your school.


Our vision is to provide amazing and nutritious food where we take fresh raw ingredients and create healthy meals.


We would like to invite you to a tasting session on the Friday, 10th May between 3.15pm and 4pm in the School Hall.  Rob will be preparing some of the new menu items and discussing any questions you may have regarding the new menu.


Rob will be in our playground from 8.15am to 9am to talk to you about the new menu.


Please book a place on the taster session through the school office.


Thank you for your support.
