Located near the Pagoda, the historic Pavilion restaurant is open during the summer months when diners can enjoy an alfresco style food offering with sumptuous and healthy food from the grill and outside BBQ.
The Pavilion restaurant at Kew Gardens

About the Pavilion restaurant

With its lovely vine-sheltered terrace, the Pavilion really comes into its own in summer. We offer a variety of meals at the Pavilion, from freshly-prepared hot dishes to a well-stocked salad counter, great British cakes and, best of all, superb terrace barbecues when the weather allows.

If the Pavilion really takes your fancy, it’s also available for private functions on summer evenings.

The Pavilion restaurant is now closed for winter.
