Food and ambience

Location and contact

There are few pleasures in life greater than good food, good friends and beautiful surroundings. The award-winning Pavilion at the Park Cafe in Bedford Park is about bringing these things together. The iconic building in the heart of the park has been lovingly restored to reflect a grand past and a bright future - and is the perfect setting to enjoy an excellent meal in great company. We firmly believe in un-fussy, wholehearted dishes made from scratch with the best, locally sourced ingredients. Come and visit soon. We'd love to see you at the park. We're open all day every day for breakfast, brunch and lunch, afternoon tea and cake and some evenings for private parties and Supper Clubs. Take

The food and atmosphere were excellent and we all felt very well looked after. Some of the guests hadn't been to the Pavilion before and were very impressed. We look forward to booking again the same time next year.

We both had their all day Pavilion breakfast. Good quality food, well cooked. Shame though that the plates it was served on were completely cold meaning that by the time we were getting to the end of it the remaining food was cold. It’s not...More

I went today, with my daughter and grandson, for what we hoped would be a lovely lunch. Sadly, we couldn't have been more wrong. The food arrived late. My grandson's meal was only semi warm, dry and looked as though it had been left under...More

Last night, for the third time, I organised a dinner for a few people at the Pavillion. At every stage - the booking, the menus, the service and the food - I saw nothing but professionalism with a smile. We had an excellent meal and...More

This afternoon tea is ideal for those looking for a homemade, wholesome experience. Not a tiny potentious selection like many other places offer for double the price! I highly recommend the pavillion for your afternoon tea! Love love love

This cafe is a favourite due to its great location, and the food used to have enough edge to make it worth the price. Disappointingly, food standards have gone downhill and so it now seems overpriced. Hopefully they will get it back on track soon...More

Hi you can park in the other end of the car park at Robinson swimming pool car park which is free. It's only about 300 yard walk from there.
