Food & Drink Options at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships

From The Champions’ Room to The Renshaw Restaurant, there is plenty of world-class cuisine on offer for Debenture Ticket Holders visiting the Championships. The Wimbledon Championships are not just a celebration of tennis; The Tournament has also become a celebration of the food and drink that are synonymous with the occasion.

From strawberries and cream to a jug of Pimms, the Championships continue to serve up the most delicious food and drink year after year.

Debenture Ticket Holders have access to some of the best bars and restaurants on the Grounds. In this guide, we’re going to be giving you a run-down of the best places to eat and drink when you come to the Championships.

What are the Wimbledon Debenture ticket restaurants and bars?

With 11 exclusive bars and restaurants to choose from, it’s safe to say that Debenture Ticket Holders won’t be going hungry on their visit to Wimbledon.

From relaxed bars to some of the most sophisticated dining experiences available, here are some of the restaurants you can visit on your day at The Championships.

The Champions’ Room

The Champions’ Room is the most exclusive Debenture restaurant on Centre Court and is available to Centre Court Debenture Owners who have successfully won a reservation in a special ballot.

This restaurant features some of the best British cuisines using fresh, local ingredients.

The Champions’ Room offers a lunchtime menu, with four-courses, and afternoon tea, where patrons can sample a classic reception of sandwiches, scones, teas and coffees.

Ballot winners are given a reserved table in the Champions’ Room for the entire day.

The Renshaw Restaurant

Open to both Centre Court and No. 1 Court Debenture Ticket Holders, The Renshaw Restaurant, similarly to The Champions’ Room, serves a three-course lunch followed by a classic afternoon tea.

Patrons of The Renshaw Room will experience innovative and sensational dishes designed by award-winning chefs.

With a successful reservation, you can use your reserved table for the entire day.

The Courtside Restaurant and Brasserie

For Centre Court Debenture ticket holders only, these waiter service restaurants have fine dining and casual menus, with the Brasserie providing an all-day casual menu until 8pm.

On-day reservations are available for the Brasserie, and while you need to reserve your table for The Courtside Restaurant, reservations are not always required for the Brasserie.

The Terrace Restaurant

Centre Court Debenture ticket holders also have access to the self-service Terrace Restaurant, which serves lunch from 11am, and a light supper from 6pm till 8pm.

The Terrace Restaurant can get busy in the evenings, and at around 1pm. It’s best to get to there early to beat the queues.

The Wingfield

The Wingfield is the newest restaurant at Wimbledon, and is exclusively for the use of Centre Court and No.1 Court Debenture ticket holders.

The Wingfield offers a relaxed table service menu and café, with takeaway coffees, snacks and sandwiches also available.

What about other food options around the Wimbledon grounds?

While Wimbledon’s restaurants serve offer excellent fine dining, there’s much more to taste and experience around the Championships. The tournament annually hosts some of the best food stalls and pop-up restaurants that London has to offer.

Head over to Henman Hill and grab some strawberries and cream for a true Wimbledon experience. If you’re feeling really peckish, head over to the Walled Garden Food Market or the Wimbledon Food Village and pick up a classic portion of fish and chips.

Wimbledon is also never in short supply of tea and coffee stalls, which you’ll find all around the Grounds. These stalls also serve plenty of snacks and other refreshments to keep you going throughout the day.

Can I bring my own food into the Wimbledon Championships?

Planning on setting up camp and having an all-day picnic at Wimbledon? No problem.

Attendees can bring food and drink with them into The Championships, but must not bring picnic hampers, flasks, cool boxes or camping chairs.

You may also bring alcohol into the grounds but are limited to one 750ml bottle of wine or Champagne, or two cans of 500ml beer. You may not bring spirits and fortified wines into the grounds.

How do I make a reservation for a Wimbledon Debenture restaurant?

Many of the AELTC’s exclusive restaurants are available only by reservation and are usually heavily oversubscribed.

To avoid disappointment, Debenture Owners should book as soon as reservations open in early May – that’s how popular these restaurants are. Debenture Owners are notified by the Debenture Office once the reservation period opens. Instructions on how to make bookings are included in the notification email.

Please note that only Wimbledon Debenture Owners themselves can book reservations before the tournament. If you have bought a Debenture ticket from a Debenture Owner, you will be able to access the Wimbledon Debenture Owners’ restaurants and bars, but won’t be able to make an early reservation yourself.

However, the Debenture Owner whom you purchased your Debenture ticket from may be able to make an advance reservation on your behalf. It is advisable to book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

On-the-day reservations can still be made if you have a Wimbledon Debenture ticket, but you are unlikely to get a booking for the more popular restaurants like The Renshaw Restaurant, which are usually reservation only. Visit the Debenture Reception, opposite Gate Three inside the Grounds, to make an on-the-day reservation enquiry.

Patrons may also be required to enter a ballot to reserve a booking at The Champions’ Room. To find out more information on reservations for exclusive Debenture restaurants, visit the AELTC’s information pages here.
