Our cafes and restaurants are slowly reopening with limited seating and takeaway options at June’s Food Court & Manado Street Kitchen.
Additionally, 10 kiosks can be found around the zoo with Ice Creams, Drinks, Snacks and Hot Dogs, as well as a pop up bar outside the Oakfield (when the weather permits!)
For more information about our café updates, please see our visit safely FAQ’s here.
Visiting the zoo can be hungry work! If you find yourself in need of something to eat, our food and drink kiosks are dotted about Chester Zoo, providing the perfect place to find your summer coolers and winter warmers, as well as lots of other light bites and snacks!
If you’re having too much fun exploring the grounds and habitats to stop for a full meal, our kiosks offer an ideal place to recharge your batteries before you get going again.
We’ve got plenty of refreshment kiosks (10, to be precise) all around the zoo, with snacks and drinks perfect for both grown ups and little ones.
Ice creams, slushies, hot and cold snacks and drinks are all available from our kiosks!
You can enjoy ice creams (and even our world famous pineapple and raspberry “DOLE WHIP™”*) which are all available from our refreshment kiosks.
*DOLE WHIP™ is only available from the District Office on Islands or the Arara Kiosk by Spirit of the Jaguar.
You can also find lots of little picnic areas located between our kiosks where you can enjoy your packed lunches, letting you relax and eat before continuing your journey around the many attractions on show.
Opening Hours: Please be aware that are kiosks operate seasonally. Details of opening times can be obtained from Guest Services on the day of your visit.
