A care home in Witney is set to transform into a pop-up restaurant for Valentine's Day.

Madley Park House will be adorned with red balloons, tablecloths, roses and crockery, serving a special menu for its residents.

Among the diners booked in for the celebration are married couple Susie, 86, and Bruce, 89, who have been wed for 55 years.

The pair share a passion for gardening and, before moving into the care home, travelled to Italy numerous times to seek inspiration for their garden at their home in Stonesfield

The meal will be cooked by the home's chefs, Jackie Henshaw and Janet Miles, who have curated a three-course menu that includes prawn cocktail or soup starters, chicken chasseur, vegetable curry or salmon for mains, and black forest gateau, Eton Mess or strawberry gateau for dessert.

Care leaders and activities co-ordinators will lend a hand in serving the dishes, swapping their normal uniforms for waiter attire, and will also provide entertainment.

Nicola Rowland, the home manager and maître d’ for the evening said: "The staff here at Madley Park House are really excited to turn the heart of the home into a pop-up restaurant to help our resident couples celebrate Valentine’s Day.

"We can’t wait to create a date night filled with culinary delights, enjoyable entertainment, lots of love and laughter, and happy memories."
