Eating and drinking

We have a wide variety of cafés and restaurants at Kew Gardens. Look out for seasonal specialties and food foraged from our Gardens.


All our cafés and restaurants source seasonal and local produce. We use as many ingredients from the Gardens as possible and offer a wide range of plant-based options.
