Welcome to the Forest Kitchen, New Forest Wildlife Park’s smart new restaurant and coffee shop. The restaurant has been re-named in honour of its recent refurbishment and now boasts bright green furniture and modern stainless steel fittings.

The Forest Kitchen is open every day from 10am to 5pm (except Christmas Day and Boxing Day), with light snacks served from 10am to 3pm. There’s a Costa coffee station for those in a hurry and everyone is welcome to pop in for a snack or a drink, both park and non-park visitors.

In the coffee shop you’ll find a tempting range of hot snacks including jacket potatoes, pasties, sausage rolls, pizzas and soups as well as salad platters, rustic baguettes, toasties, sandwiches and paninis, with a choice of tasty fillings.

Try some of our lovely home-baked cakes and mouth-watering cream teas or a delicious New Forest ice-cream. We have a wide choice of hot and cold drinks, including coffee, hot chocolate, teas, fruit juices, mineral water, fizzy drinks and milkshakes

We offer a 10% discount on cream teas for pre-booked groups of ten or more people including lunch boxes for children.


The Forest Kitchen coffee shop has indoor and outdoor seating and welcomes everyone from park visitors to passers-by, dog walkers and cyclists. Coach parties are also welcome, with free parking available on site.
