The Pavillion Café in Greenwich Park
Greenwich Park

The Pavilion Café

You'll find the recently refurbished Pavilion Café at the top of the hill by the Royal Observatory. 

Built in 1906, this octagonal building is topped by a dovecote with a weather vane depicting Nelson peering through his telescope. In fine weather, make the most of the large gardens at the front and rear. In winter, The Pavilion Café offers a cosy and welcoming haven.


The breakfast menu includes buttermilk pancakes and breakfast baps alongside the classic full English breakfast and a hearty vegan alternative.


The café's lunch menu features Benugo classics like stone-baked sourdough pizzas, Greenwich Meantime beer-battered fish & chips, and the Pavilion beef burger & chips. Lighter options cater to all tastes, including freshly made Caesar salad, watermelon and Greek salad, and beetroot & chickpea salad.

Children's Menu

The kids' menu offers mini pizzas, fish goujons, and mac & cheese. All kids' meals come with a side of broccoli, and for a healthier option, chips can be swapped for carrot & cucumber sticks. Plenty of vegetarian and vegan options are available to cater to all dietary needs.

Drinks and Ice Cream

We serve alcohol and a range of soft drinks. In warmer weather, try our ice-cream kiosk at The Pavilion Café, where you'll find Jude's ice cream.

Seasonal BBQ Pop-Up

Highlights of the seasonal barbecue pop-up menu include vegan bratwurst, grilled halloumi, and pulled pork burger with smoky barbecue sauce and carrot & fennel slaw. A crowd-pleasing pork belly roast is served with crackling, homemade flatbread, and Bramley apple sauce.

By dining at one of our catering outlets, your purchase contributes to the care, upkeep and protection of the vital green spaces in which they operate.

Dogs are welcome on the paved area on a short leash.
