Wimbledon is not just a celebration of tennis, it is also a celebration of great food and drink.

We believe in giving you fresh, responsibly sourced British produce. Our award-winning local suppliers search for seasonal delights and bring cuisines from all over the world to the table. From the famous Kentish strawberries to carefully selected seafood, everything on offer is produced from the finest ingredients.
We’re passionate about the role food and drink plays in enhancing your Championships experience.

We know speed of service is crucial, which is why our team of chefs across the grounds ensure that whether you’re looking for a quick bite to eat, a more formal sit down meal, or the ever popular picnic, you can get back to the action as soon as possible.

From overseeing the quality of the famous strawberries and cream, to last-minute 4.30 a.m. checks of the grounds, pulling together The Championships food and drink service is no mean feat. There is a whole host of staff behind the scenes, making your day out at Wimbledon as spectacular as it can be.

The Wimbledon experience would be nothing without the people who make it happen. Some have been working at The Championships over 25 years, coming from far and wide to contribute to this magical fortnight.
