Places to Eat

  • The Battle of Britain Restaurant – a 250 seater restaurant, upstairs in the Main Grandstand accessible also by lift. This has a spectacular view across the front from where you will see the Living History displays, the Arena, classic cars and lots more. It will serve good quality, inexpensive food.  Breakfast is served from 7.00-10.00am and lunch starts from 11.30am through to 4.00pm.  Restaurants will be open each evening until around 11pm and a bar is open from 10.00am each day.  

  • For those staying onsite, the restaurant will be open each evening until approximately 11.00pm.
  • Come and enjoy a fine cup of tea in a bone china cup served from a teapot in The Spitfire Tea-room. Our lovely 1940s team room will be run by War and Peace regular Joanne better known from the NAAFI wagon – renowned for its excellent bread and butter pudding! Serving sandwiches, toasties, fluffy jacket potatoes, cream teas, homemade cakes plus tea and coffee/cold drinks served by elegant waitresses in the Lyons’ Tea Rooms uniform.  This will be a haven for those who would like to sit down and enjoy a light bite in 40s themed surroundings.  Open daily from 10am to 6pm.


As well as the Bars in the The Officers’ Mess, Victory Marquee, Ginger’s, the Official’s Bar and The Battle of Britain Restaurant, we also have:

The Jazz Bar

Another new addition in 2013 was the Jazz Bar, bringing a bit of swing to your life!  The Jazz Bar, situated behind the main grandstands, provides a relaxing atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of the main show. 

Also during the day will be talks from some of our authors who are based near the Victory Marquee.

With a full bar and comfortable seating indoors and outside on the patio, the Jazz Bar is an ideal place to recharge your batteries, meet and greet friends, or just sit and enjoy some good music.

Monty’s Bar

Situated on the ground floor of the Main Grandstand is Monty’s Bar where you can go for a nice quiet drink.
