OPEN DAILY FROM 8AM
Whether you’re after a quick coffee, long lunch or a light bite to keeping you going on your walk, the café at Gunnersbury has you covered.
Inside, the café is light and airy. Meanwhile, extensive outside seating offers views over the meadows and towards the Round Pond. Throughout the day we serve an award-winning own-blend coffee, a range of teas, soft drinks and a carefully chosen wine list. In the summer months we also serve jugs of Pimms brimming with fruit, perfect for after-work drinks. There’s also a selection of tempting cakes, biscuits and pastries and freshly made sandwiches if you’re feeling peckish.
For something more substantial to eat take a look at our full seasonal menu. Get the day off to a flying start and join us for breakfast from 8am to 11.30am. Our big cooked breakfast with all the trimmings is a real winner. Or try a bacon or sausage bap, scrambled eggs, porridge or simply toast and jam.
Our all-day menu (served from 12noon until 30 minutes before closing) includes soup, salad and a range of hearty main courses, including beer-battered fish and chips and a seasonal pasta dish. We’re also well known for our made-to order pizzas made with Italian tomatoes and baked in a wood-fired oven for an authentic flavour. There’s the classic margarita, spicy Diavola with Ventricina salami and aromatic BBQ chicken to name a few, your only challenge will be choosing which to go for!
For our youngest visitors, our special children’s menu features mini pizzas and other favourites such as fish fingers, sausages and pasta. Plus, for every adult meal ordered, a child under 12 can eat for free from the children’s menu.
Our café is run in partnership with Benugo. For the latest menus and full opening times, please visit the Benugo website.
A café with character – don’t forget to visit our collection of historic carriages
As well as making the most of its parkland setting, our café is linked to the estate by a display of historic vehicles from our collection. All were once used locally, including two that belonged to Gunnersbury’s former owners, the Rothschilds. These luxurious carriages, which the Rothschilds used to travel around town and further afield, are the Victorian equivalent of today’s limousine.
Other carriages on display provided their owners with their livelihood. There’s a Hansom cab that plied its trade ferrying passengers from Ealing Broadway station and a Pony Phaeton that was used to collect rents from market gardens around Isleworth.
Good to know
A specially designed ‘dog park’ outside the café means you can safely leave your dog whilst you pop in and order. As we have an open kitchen, we ask that dogs (with the exception of assistance dogs) remain outside. If you are sitting outside, please keep your dog on its lead beside your table.
Drinks, ice-creams, sandwiches and snacks can all be prepared to take away so you can pick up the essentials for a picnic in the park from the café.
If you’re bringing your own picnic, you’ll find plenty of picturesque spots for your blanket and there are benches dotted throughout the park. The café seating, including the picnic tables outside, is reserved for those enjoying food and drink purchased at the café.
