Need to know where to grab a bite or pint at Roses 2023? Checkout all the info below to see what’s on offer!

But first, you’ll need a Roses Cup!

We’re working hard to reduce one use plastics at Roses, so at our Supporters Hub and other bars across the weekend we’ll be serving drinks in our reusable Roses Cups! You’ll need to pay a £2 deposit for your cup. If you’d like a second (or third!) drink we can serve it in the same cup, or swap it for a clean one. When you’re finished with your cup, return it to any of our bars and we can refund your deposit, or if you’d like we can donate your £2 to Survive, the Roses official charity partner, on your behalf.

Keep reading so you’re prepared for a full day of eating at Roses!


The most important meal of the day, and whether you’re playing in Roses or just want to make sure you’ve got enough energy to catch all the fixtures, you can grab a hot breakfast sandwich from our pop-up Roses Cafe (in Physics) or Courtyard on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 April between 7am-11am. Courtyard will be serving breakfast from 8:30am as normal on Friday 28 April including our now world famous 40p beans on toast!

Roses Breakfast available at Courtyard & Roses Cafe

Any Hot Sandwich, Hash Browns & Drink - £5.50

A Soft white bap served with sausages, bacon or vegan sausages - £3.75


Best enjoyed in the sun from one of our street food vendors at the Supporters Hub (just outside York Sport Centre). We’ve got an array of treats for you in the form of YUZU, Meow & Bao, as well as Dan’s Pies.


As well as our normal campus bars we’ll have pop up locations all over Roses so you can enjoy a drink! We’ll be serving specially themed Roses cocktails and pints from our bar, and a special bus bar courtesy of Hooch! You’ll also be able to avoid a walk with our bar by the Pavilion at 22 Acres. There’ll also be popups at select fixtures like Dance and Boxing in Central Hall!


Red Rose: Vodka, Triple Sec, Cranberry Juice

White Rose: Vodka, Gin, Tequila, Triple Sec, Bacardi, Lemonade


Look- we’re not debating what to call it, we just know you should probably eat it! It might also be time for a brief sit down after a full day of Roses, so why not head over to Courtyard which will be serving up a full menu! Don’t forget to beat the queue and order to your table!

Late Night Snack

Ok you’ve done it. Made it through a full day of Roses, but if you’re planning on heading to our club night or even just a midnight snack, make sure to check out our late night Pizza, serving from YUSU.
