Manager- Sinead Craswell

Our flagship café, where it all began! The former ice cream hut in Pittville Park is now a multi-award winning park café, and the philosophy and ideas behind In The Park are all as a result of that journey.

We have made many improvements to the facilities over the years including a fully renovated serving area, patio, benches and bike racks and still have plenty more we’d like to do.

We have some wonderful regular customers who have been with us from the very beginning and we also provide a high quality service for the many out of town visitors who visit Pittville all year round.


Parking is free around the park for 4 hours.  Additional free parking can be found behind the Pittville Pump Rooms at the top of the eastern side of the park and at Abermarle Gate at the top of the western side of the park.
