For all enquiries into our dining options at Hampton Court Palace, please call 0203 166 6971 or 07903972864 between 09:00 and 17:00.
Whether you’re looking for a hand-crafted coffee, an indulgent cake or a hot lunch, the Tiltyard’s bright café and deli has what you need.
Take a seat inside or on the sunny terrace and enjoy freshly made sandwiches, soups, salads and hearty hot meals. With meal options on the menu for children, this is the perfect spot for a family lunch.
Visitors do not need a palace admission ticket to access the Tiltyard Café.
Situated at the heart of the palace, the Privy Kitchen is an ideal spot for a quick bite to eat. The Privy Kitchen Café serves a variety of hot drinks, sweet treats, Tudor-style pies and soups.
Did you know? Beef & ale pie is said to have been Henry VIII’s favourite treat after a tennis match.
Take a relaxing break in peaceful surroundings. Enjoy light lunches, sweet treats, afternoon teas and refreshments.
To help protect our palace, food and drink is not allowed within the confines of any of the buildings except in designated areas.
Enjoy a picnic in the iconic gardens of Hampton Court Palace. Bring your food and a comfortable blanket from home, and enjoy this unique picnic location with plenty of space for the kids to run around.
Picnickers must have a valid Palace admission ticket to access the formal gardens, but picnicking in the informal gardens (such as the Tiltyard Garden, Rose Garden and Wilderness) is free of charge.
Our single-use coffee cups, and other catering disposables, are made from renewable, lower carbon or recycled materials and can be commercially composted with food waste.
At Historic Royal Palaces we exist for tomorrow, not just for yesterday.More on sustainability
We strive to offer something for everyone at Hampton Court Palace.
Whether you’re looking for something sweet or savoury, gluten-free and vegan options are available. Daily-free milk options are available for hot drinks at no extra cost.
