DIETARY REQUIREMENTS

We strive to offer a personalised service at the Tower of London. Like every catering establishment, our menu dishes are prepared in environments that are not totally free from allergen ingredients. While we endeavour to prevent this as far as possible, the nature of an allergen means we cannot fully guarantee that cross-contamination may not have occurred. 

We are happy to provide further detail on ingredients and how they are handled to allow you make an informed decision as to whether the food is suitable for you. Should you have concerns about the ingredients in our dishes, please do not hesitate to ask a member of our staff regarding allergens in any of our dishes. An allergen folder is also available on the catering floor should you have any questions.

We can provide allergen information on the 14 major allergens - lupin, mustard, molluscs, nuts, peanuts, crustaceans, fish, egg, celery, sulphur dioxide, soybean, milk, sesame, gluten.

Inside the buildings

To help protect our palace, food and drink is not allowed within the confines of any of the buildings except in designated areas.

SUSTAINABILITY

Food is our passion, and we want it to be as respectful of the environment as can be! This is why, it is at the centre of all we do, reducing our food waste, using a greenest supply chain, local sourcing and committing to a larger plant-based offer.

We love to tell stories through our food and drink, we use our creativity to link our food to the unique visitor experience. We understand the role great food can play in a family day out and our extensive menus can provide you with everything you need.

Our food is inventive, global, and memorable yet accessible to all. We source seasonal food using local suppliers through our London larder, a specially selected group of local suppliers whose commitment to quality in their field. Their products give our menus a sense of place, one that reflects our London heritage and base. The local supplier map can be viewed below.
