Eastcote House Gardens

Eastcote House Gardens, London in Bloom Park of the Year category winner 2014 has stood at the heart of Eastcote for over 500 years.

The restoration project was a joint venture involving Hillingdon Council, the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Friends of Eastcote House Gardens.

Garden

Much of Eastcote House Gardens is grassland. Many fine old ornamental trees grace the landscape. The significance of the word 'gardens' in the name of the site is due mainly to the Walled Garden where horticultural expertise is displayed in the maintenance of shrubs, herbaceous borders and herb beds. An old orchard retains the tradition of past domestic use and Mulberry, Fig, Apples, Walnut and Medlar are featured.  A new orchard was planted in December 2011 to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. 

The cafe

The cafe, which is leased out by Hillingdon Council, is open daily and serves a wide range of food and soft drinks. Where possible the food is fresh and locally sourced. 

The opening hours are currently

  • Monday to Saturday: 8.30am to 4pm 
  • Sunday: 10am to 4pm

However, these times are subject to seasonal variations and the cafe operator reserves the right to alter them as necessary.  

Example of the type of food the cafe provides:

  • breakfasts
  • sandwiches
  • paninis
  • jacket potatoes
  • omelettes
  • cakes and pastries
  • daily specials including hot lunches, salads and light snacks
