To help plan your visit to Tate Modern, have a look at our visual story. It includes photographs and information about what you can expect from a visit to the gallery.
Whilst our art collection celebrates the world, our menu celebrates the seasonal and local. This means:
- A lot of our produce is picked at its natural peak for ultimate freshness and minimal environmental impact
- We endeavour to support local suppliers, reducing our food miles from field to plate
Here are some more ways we aim to reduce environmental impact in our cafés and restaurants:
- Our head chef strives for a low to no-waste menu. This means you’ll find some food items cleverly repeated throughout the menu
- We’re keen to support more regenerative farmers who are leading the way and inspiring us to do better. Each year, we’re adding more suppliers to our list
- We are reducing food packaging by serving food in open dishes and with your help, we’re moving away from disposable coffee cups entirely by 2025
All our cafés and restaurants offer gluten free and vegan options.
