With options to suit all tastes and budgets, Leith’s offer a delicious dining to make your visit to Glyndebourne extra special.

The Long Bar

Open two hours before the performance, during the interval and post-performance, we recommend the Long Bar as the best rendezvous point to meet family and friends. We offer a selection of wines, Champagnes, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks including mulled wine on chilly days. There is also a choice of sandwiches and cakes available along with a range of coffees and teas.

Interval drinks

To avoid queuing for your interval drinks we strongly recommend that you place your order in advance online. All interval drinks must be paid for at the time of ordering. All pre-ordered drinks will be left with a copy of your booking on the glass shelves outside the Glyndebourne Box Office. In addition to the Long Bar service, there are hot beverage stations on each of the balconies serving tea and coffee.

There will be no restaurant services during the interval.


Open two hours before the performance, the self-service tearooms, conveniently located adjacent to the customer car park, offer afternoon tea with a selection of sandwiches, cakes and scones.  Tables are available on a ‘walk in’, 'non-reservation' basis and are subject to availability.

Nether Wallop and Middle & Over Wallop restaurants

Both restaurants are open either two hours before an evening performance or for two hours following an afternoon performance. Advance booking is required although occasionally there is limited availability on the day.

Nether Wallop offers a range of optional starters followed by our extremely popular hot carvery and cold buffet which is rounded off with a choice of sumptuous desserts.

Middle & Over Wallop offers a two course ‘Bistro’ style menu with a selection of optional starters. We also offer a three course ‘meal deal’ menu.

Our set 'Ha-Ha' Afteroon Tea is also available here. (Served before the opera starts)

There is a disabled toilet in or close to each restaurant.  There is a wheelchair lift in Middle & Over Wallop (please be aware we can only accomodate standard manual wheelchairs on the lift with a maxiumim limit of 200kg)
