My hubby and I popped in for lunch and luckily took the only empty table. The menu of locally sourced food is great, particularly if you are into healthier options. I had a lovely bean chilli with rice, lemon mayo and a huge crispy tortilla. Hubby had a bacon, Brie and cranberry panini, all delicious.
The all day breakfast menu looked great too, may return soon for the smashed avocado on sourdough toast!

Had a relaxed breakfast following a good early morning walk. The Pavilion staff were friendly and welcoming, plus both the pavilion breakfast and scrambled eggs/salmon on toast were both tasty & filling, washed down with a nice pot of tea.
The venue was clean and comfortable and is well located within Bedford Park, a great location.

Went hear for a late breakfast with my partner - decided to order two ciabattas and a pot of tea. Came to £15, which was quite expensive but in my mind it would be worth it if it was nice. It came about 15 minutes later and what I had was very average, nothing notable about my ciabatta and my partner's was burnt and tasted reheated.
From the price I was expecting quite a nice tasting breakfast, and instead I would've been better eating at home or going to a cheap cafe in the town centre. I had high hopes for this place as it looks the part, and sounds the part but unfortunately doesn't deliver :(

We had lunch at the Pavilion in Bedford Park after a five mile ramble to Clapham, and we felt suitably rewarded at the end of our 2 hour trek. Sharon was so attentive we felt she really cared. The food was mouth-watering - I had smashed avocado and tomato on sourdough toast - mmmm! As a walking group we have tried out many lunch venues, and the Pavilion stood out as being one of the best organised, as well as having delicious food. Not only were we served very quickly, and welcomed with jugs of water on the tables without having to ask, but we didn't have the usual queue at the cash desk either. We'll be back!
