Breakfast

According to Eton's caterers Sodexo, breakfast at the boarding school is nothing short of an all-inclusive holiday resort. The website reads: "We pride ourselves in making everything from scratch, starting with the fresh bread every day."

Lunch

When we think of school dinners, we might imagine chicken pie with mash, fish fingers with peas or tasty iced sprinkle cake and custard – but not at Eton. Pupils are treated to delicious meals from around the world, with choices fit for a king.

Even the Queen has dined at Eton College

Sodexo writes: "Our core menus contain both traditional and cutting-edge foods from around the world. The [boys'] favourites remain roast Dingley Dell pork, lasagne, lamb kleftiko and Jamaican jerk chicken with plantain. Lunch and dinner also present boys with a most amazing salad bar and on Saturday evenings, they enjoy new flavour profiles with a street food theme."

Dinner

Dining at Eton College is described as "an experience based on British-grown and produced foods" with an "interest in international cuisine".

On the menu are vegan bao buns with pulled jackfruit and sweet celeriac slaw, Dominican chimichurri burgers with smoked mayonnaise in a brioche bun and Vietnamese pork banh mi with sriracha tahini sauce.
