Chiswick House and Gardens Café

Our Café is run by Colicci – an artisan, independent family brand of cafés and restaurants. The Café is open every day from 8am serving Colicci’s signature speciality coffee and homemade cakes. They have a range of delicious lunch items, including freshly baked sourdough pizzas from the in-house pizza oven.

Ingredients are locally sourced and sustainable and feature seasonal produce from the Chiswick House and Gardens Kitchen Garden.

Our Café was designed by award-winning architects Caruso St John; the contemporary space looks out on the magnificent gardens and neo-Palladian villa. In 2011, the Café received three RIBA awards including London Building of the Year.

Pop up Kiosk and Ice Cream

Each summer, our vintage ice cream van is stationed at the back of the house. Perfect for an outdoor treat for all the family.

Keep an eye out for our pop up coffee and cake kiosk to grab a coffee or treat.

Grab a picnic

If you have brought your own food or grabbed a picnic from the Café, why not sit in our dog free picnic lawns by the lake?

All we ask is that you help us keep our grounds clean and safe for everyone. Please:

  • no barbecues or any kind of cooking (it is a fire hazard)
  • no glass (broken glass is a hazard for other visitors and our wildlife)
  • take your litter home with you

If you would like to hold a picnic for over 20 – for family, your work or kid’s party – then please email us for information on spaces we have for hire.


Visit our Shop, at the back of Chiswick House, to buy locally sourced exclusive gifts, greetings cards and home grown produce.

We welcome all visitors to the Shop – you don’t need a ticket to pop in.

You will also find a small selection of goods to purchase in our Café, and look out for our roving cart selling seasonal produce from the Kitchen Garden.

Opening hours are 10am to 4pm daily (may be subject to seasonal closures)
