Picnicking and dining

Fine food and a visit to Glyndebourne go hand-in-hand

Autumn 2020 dining

We have been working hard to provide the best dining experience for our autumn 2020 season under the current COVID-19 guidelines. Enhance your visit by booking a pre-performance dining experience, or a reserved space if you prefer to bring your own picnic. By selecting one of these options you will be able to arrive 2.5 hours before the performance begins, allowing you to make the most of your visit.

Pre-performance dining options:

  • Middle and Over Wallop restaurant: three-course pre-performance dining
  • Mildmay tearooms: Ha-Ha afternoon tea
  • Greenhouse & Garden Marquees: bookable for those bringing their own refreshments

We’ve ensured there’s plenty of distancing between parties in each location, and have opened more spaces to ensure that everyone who wants to extend their visit, can. Please note that all dining options must be booked in advance online or through the Box Office, including space in the marquees.

If you choose not to extend your visit time by pre-booking one of our dining options, for your safety you’ll be asked to arrive no more than 20 minutes before the performance start time. Unfortunately, the grounds won’t be open for general use and the Long Bar will remain closed for the autumn performances.

Please be aware that to ensure your safety there will be no interval during the performances.

Thank you for working with us during these extraordinary times.
