Eating at Avebury

The Circles Restaurant

The Circles Restaurant is open for light lunches such as pasties, jacket potatoes, soup and sandwiches. We also offer children's lunchboxes.

Throughout the day, we serve cakes, light refreshments, and of course hot and cold drinks.

Whether you are calling in for a quick cuppa, or for a delicious lunch with a cake for pudding you can be assured of a warm welcome.

There is seating available inside the restaurant If the upstairs is open you'll find a perfect view over the stone circle to enjoy.

If you prefer to sit outside, there are a number of picnic tables in the Old Farmyard that can be used to provide an ‘al fresco’ eating experience.

You'll find water for dogs outside the restaurant and tie up points on all the picnic tables.
