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 dove-cot with a weather vane showing Nelson looking through his telescope. In fine weather make the most of the large garden at the front and rear. In the winter, the Pavilion Café is a cosy, welcoming place to visit.

Open daily for traditional breakfast including freshly baked pastries and breakfast muffins.

Our lunch menu includes freshly made stone-baked pizzas, soup, sandwiches and hearty hot dishes. There's a tantalising choice of cakes or traditional English cream tea for an afternoon treat.

We serve alcohol and a range of soft drinks. In the warmer weather try our ice-cream kiosk at the Pavilion Café where you can choose from eight flavours of Marshfield Farm Ice Cream.

The Pavilion Café is a perfect place to feed the kids. With smaller portions of hot dishes, a kids lunch box selection and fun activity sheet, high chairs, child-friendly cutlery and baby changing facilities, we offer a warm welcome to families.

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