New provider sought for Radnor Gardens café

Release Date: 18 September 2020

A new operator is being sought for this popular park-based Twickenham café, which unfortunately had to close recently. Last month the lease was surrendered back to the Council by the Friends of Radnor Gardens – and the Council is therefore now actively marketing the reletting of the café on a five-year lease for an experienced café operator.

The café is a single-storey building dating from the 1930s, with a flat roof. A modern metal canopy provides a covered area for external customer seating of approximately 4 picnic benches. Internally, a small lobby leads to the kitchen and preparation space. There is no internal customer seating, and the WC is accessed externally.

The Council’s contractor, Continental Landscapes Ltd, is currently maintaining access to the WC for park users until the new operator can take over – toilet access will be required for all park visitors, not just customers, as part of the terms of the lease.

Local café or catering providers are being urged to get in touch now, so that the local community can look forward to this vibrant café re-opening. For more information, go to our Radnor Gardens page.
