The Regent's Park

Largely the inspiration of John Nash, the Park was laid out at the beginning of the 19th century as part of a major residential plan for the gentry. The wonderful gardens on the Inner Circle, a boating lake, the Royal Wildfowl collection, the Open Air Theatre, and the largest area of sports pitches in London make The Regent’s Park a magnet for both locals and visitors alike.

Host your next celebration at The Regent's Park.

The Garden Café

In the Inner Circle of The Regent’s Park, The Garden Café was first built in 1964 and called The Little Chef.

Today the building has been rescued and the spirit rejuvenated with a design that reflects the original architectural style. The result is simple, stylish, open plan space full of colour and beautiful natural light.

The menu and service style has been designed to reflect the original purpose of the Café in the 1960s, serving teas, coffees, lunch and summer suppers.

  • Dorset crab, soft lettuce heart, brown crab dressing
  • Cod fillet, green herb and tomato sauce, crushed potatoes
  • Summer berry pavlova
