The Pavilion Café at Upton

Our Pavilion Café is open for light takeaway refreshments and drinks (opening times may vary). There is now outdoor seating available, but this is limited, and track and trace details will be required under the latest government guidance. Treat yourself while exploring the gardens, every penny of profit helps to care for Upton House and Gardens.

The Pavilion Café

On the menu…

Order from our friendly team at the counter. The menu is changing regularly, but there is a range of delicious yummy cakes, bakes and scones, hot and cold drinks, as well as options for light lunches.

Although seating is now available outside, this is limited and we can not guarantee availability as this will change throughout the day depending on visitor numbers. If you wish to make use of these facilities when available, in line with the latest government guidance, each member of the party (over 16 years of age) will need to provide details for track and trace. Face covering will need to be worn in indoor spaces (unless exempt). Thank you for helping us to stay open safely.

Design and Décor

Upton’s Pavilion Restaurant was purpose built in 2002, reflecting the architecture of the house. The star lantern lights are similar to the original one that used to hang in Lady Bearsted’s Art Deco bathroom.

The fretwork and colour scheme echo the designs in the Long Gallery and through the house, made during the renovation in 1927.  Posters and photos on the walls reflect the history of the house and gardens.
