What’s on the menu?

Catering is at the heart of every event. At Edgbaston, we strive to deliver our food and beverages in the most sustainable way without compromising on taste or quality.

We are proud to prepare over 95% of our food on-site at Edgbaston, using seasonal, locally sourced ingredients. In fact, many of the fruit and vegetables used in our menus are grown in our very own Edgbaston Garden.

All refreshment breaks are served with homemade snacks and Fairtrade tea & coffee. Plus, with the use of Klimato, you can make fully informed decisions when selecting your menus with full carbon labelling of each dish.
