Lone Star Dining is an approach that provides older people with a list of pubs, cafes, social clubs and restaurants in the Wythenshawe and surrounding area. Places that will give an older person a warm and friendly welcome if they enter to dine alone. The main focus of a social eating scheme is about the older person having a choice of where they eat, when they eat and extending their network of friends and social eating spaces. This is a 12 month pilot sponsored by Heineken Manchester of which older people will be designing, testing, evaluating, preparing and delivering a final report about the pilot scheme. Participants will be visiting local cafes, social clubs, pubs and restaurants to generate interest from the business, taking part in secret shopping expeditions and helping to evaluate the pilot with and independent agency.
