Eating

Cupcakes and cocktails at the Upper Deck cafe bar

Upper Deck cafe bar

Situated at the front of the Museum with views of Covent Garden Piazza, the Upper Deck cafe bar is the perfect destination to take the family for lunch before touring the Museum, or to meet friends for a transport-themed cocktail. Hot and cold food and drinks are available throughout the day, including sandwiches, burgers and handmade pasta. Take your little travellers out to eat guilt-free – our kids meals come with carrots and cucumbers. Relax with freshly made cakes and award-winning Benugo blend coffee, or unwind with friends over a cold beer or glass of wine.

Join us for Friday Lates and sip on speciality Routemaster cocktails in a funky setting. The interior features seating upholstered in a unique ‘moquette’ fabric design based on the pattern used on the Northern line in the 1930s. With music, bars, hot food, talks, quizzes, and craft activities, the Friday Lates are a great way to discover the Museum after-hours.
