This year’s Wimbledon Championships run from 1 – 14 July. Make sure you’ve planned well in advance – and your meals too…

With all that to-ing and fro-ing of the head in the sun (fingers crossed!), spectating can work up quite the appetite. Strawberries and cream are a classic, but make sure you book one of these top dining spots in the area for something a little more substantial to round off the perfect day out at the tennis. And a few celebratory cocktails, too, of course!


Sticks n' Sushi

This popular sushi and yakitori restaurant is a firm favourite with fashionable SW19 residents. With a vast menu including numerous healthy options, it’s also perfect for those on strict training diets…

The Alexandra

The Alexandra is all about getting involved in the festivities surrounding the biggest sporting event on the British calendar. With special themed drinks and classic British dishes, it’s a great place to pop into pre or post-match.

The Ivy Cafe

Ivy Cafe Wimbledon

Head to Wimbledon’s Ivy outpost for stylish all-day dining (and drinking) done right. The weekend brunch is legendary and just the energy boost you need ahead of the action on Centre Court, especially when paired with a few refreshing Ivy Bloody Marys. This year they’ve partnered with Fever-Tree, transforming their summer terrace into a floral oasis – perfect for post-tennis al fresco drinks.

An Insider’s Guide to Wimbledon

Thai Tho

Serena Williams once called this her favourite restaurant in Wimbledon Village and Maria Sharapova was a regular – and that’s pretty much enough said. After all, there is nothing quite like a tangy and comforting Pad Thai after a long day of running around on the court (or simply watching it).

The Rose and Crown

The Rose and Crown Wimbledon

Just a short walk from the madness of Henman Hill, The Rose & Crown is where it’s at during the Championships. Every year they set up a large marquee bar which plays music until late for the duration of Wimbledon, and with large screens and a buzzing atmosphere, it’s the best place to go if you didn’t manage to bag tickets.

San Lorenzo Fuoriporta

This authentic Italian restaurant is family-run and has a real convivial feel which attracts locals and tennis stars alike. San Lorenzo Fuoriporta has been around since 1969 and is a favourite of German tennis superstar Boris Becker as well as winning trophies of its own, including ‘Local Restaurant of the Year 2017’. The secret garden is rather wonderful come summertime.

Get it Right: What to Wear to Wimbledon

Maison St Cassien

Maison St Cassien

This Lebanese and Mediterranean café and restaurant is right in the middle of Wimbledon Village and perfectly placed for people watching. Andy Murray and Maria Sharapova are among many tennis champions who have popped in for a chicken shawarma and tabbouleh.

The Fox & Grapes

A charming British gastropub which serves classics with a twist, and has won awards for its efforts. There are even rooms upstairs if your celebrations (of a British win?) get rowdier than anticipated.


Wimbledon’s favourite cocktail bar for when you want to experiment with something other than Pimm’s… Nab a street table if you can and soak up the last of the sun as you sip on English garden-inspired cocktails. The Forget-Me-Not tastes just like a British summer’s evening, and regular live music and open mic nights jazz up the atmosphere.
