Cafes in Regents Park

Once you are done walking around, enjoying nature and art or even taking selfies, and are in a need of a beverage and foodstuff, you can explore further by visiting The Regent's Park cafes. Here is more information on some of the cafes and what they offer.

The Hub Café

This is one of my favourite spots on a warm day with low winds. The café is positioned on a hill and you can see a long way ahead, all the way across the sports grounds. The café features transparent glass walls and doors so you can enjoy the views of the park inside the café as well as outside.

The Hub Cafe in Regent’s Park serves hot and cold beverages, sandwiches, snacks and yoghurt ice-cream.

There are free toilets available here that customers can use.

More information available here.

Smokehouse Bar & Grill

This is one of my personal favourite places for food and drink in Regent’s Park. It has a large garden space with lots of tables, so there is plenty of space for everyone.

You can come and simply come and enjoy a drink, such as a coffee, or you can check out their barbecue menu and get some food. The restaurant makes pretty decent burgers, and the smell of the burgers is divine. You can buy hot and cold beverages, including beers. There is ice cream and a variety of other things on offer. For a park café this restaurant offers a good selection of foods (see menu) and beverages (see menu).

The café also has free toilets available for use by it's customers.

The Boathouse Cafe

This is a superb spot to relax with a beverage and a snack overlooking the boats and the boating lake. Check out our guide on rowing boat and pedalo hire in London. The views from this café are great. However, the café is best enjoyed for its outdoor space so pleasant weather is a must on the day if you wish to sit at the cafe. Alternatively, you can get beverages and snacks to take away.

There are no public toilets at this coffee shop, however there are paid public toilets a very short walk away from the café. You can ask for directions at the café if it is not immediately clear where the park loos are.

The Boathouse Cafe's opening times vary based on the time of the year. For opening times and more information visit their webpage here.
