Eton College is one of the most exclusive boys' schools in the world. Having educated the likes of Prince William and Prince Harry, as well as current Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne, the elite private school in Windsor is famed for its high academic standards and star-studded alumni.

With school fees reaching up to £48,501 per year, taking GCSEs at this royal-approved boarding school is nothing short of luxury. Most impressive are the indulgent menus served three times a day, where students are treated to food curated by world-class chefs and the Queen's favourite afternoon tea.

HELLO! delved into the decadent menus at Eton College to see what the UK's most luxurious school had on offer for breakfast, lunch and dinner…


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."

"Boys love the huge variety of foods, starting with breakfast, which features cereals, a porridge bar, homemade granola, a cooked selection, continental meats and cheeses and a different smoothie each day and, incredibly, nine types of milk!" Imagine that spread!

Another term for a mid-morning snack, Prince William and Harry would have enjoyed this as pupils. Around 11am, a host of treats known as Chambers are offered to the boys. From biscuits to iced buns and burgers, boys can enjoy some hearty pre-lunch munch. Some boarding houses even have their own chef - what luxury!

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.

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."


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.

It's not just weekdays that see the boys fuelled with five-star food. Busy Saturday summer afternoons see the catering team at Eton serving "up to 1500 teas for parents and boys, involved with cricket, tennis and athletics."

So, does Eton's kitchen take reservations?
