Food Information Regulations

Food Information Regulations 2014

It is our duty to now provide all our guests with information on what’s in our food, to help you decide whether you can eat it.  As many as 1/3rdof the population now have food allergies, and it’s important for you to be able to decide for yourselves, what you can and can’t eat.  There will be a dedicated “Champion” on the staff who will be able to answer any questions that you may have.  We will provide you with information on the following 14 food allergens.

The 14 allergens are:

·               eggs

·               milk

·               fish

·               crustaceans (for example crab, lobster, crayfish, shrimp, prawn)

·               molluscs (for example mussels, oysters, squid)

·               peanuts

·               tree nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, cashews, pecans, brazils, pistachios, macadamia nuts or Queensland nuts)

·               sesame seeds

·               cereals containing gluten (such as wheat, spelt, Khorasan (wheat/Kamut), rye, barley, oats, or their hybridised strains).

·               soya

·               celery and celeriac

·               mustard

·               lupin

·               sulphur dioxide and sulphites (at concentration of more than ten parts per million)

Please note that that Tree Nuts doesn’t include Water Chestnuts, Sweet Chestnuts, Coconut, Pine Nuts.  They are not covered by this guide, if you are allergic to any of these, please advise us as they are in regular use at Cedar Manor.


We will review and reproduce this data with every menu change, but from time to time there may be other updates and occasionally the circumstances in which a product is made, packaged or stored may change without our knowledge.



Within our kitchens we handle food products containing peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, fish, egg, shellfish (both molluscs and crustaceans), milk, cereals containing gluten, celery/celeriac, soya, mustard and sulphites. Also, we occasionally use lupins.  There may be derivatives of these allergens also in use.  It’s impossible to fully guarantee separation of these allergens at all times, from any other ingredient in storage, preparation or cooking – at any point trace amounts could be transferred.  This is called cross-contamination.  All our menus are prepared in areas where allergens are present therefore there is a risk that ingredients used in your meal have accidentally come into contact with an undeclared allergen (including gluten, tree nuts and peanuts), at any point in time.  
Cooking equipment and food preparation areas may be shared and fried items containing different allergens may be cooked in the same frying oil.  Please ask if you require any further information on our cooking methods and possible cross-contamination.

If you have concerns regarding cross- contamination or are likely to experience a serious allergic reaction to trace amounts of any allergen, please contact us prior to dining or speak to our management at Cedar Manor.


The Food Information Regulations 2014 only identifies 14 allergens, there could be other ingredients that you are allergic to, please do advise us of all food allergies.  (but not Likes and Dislikes)
