Twycross Zoo - Follow Your Heart

Opening Times: 10am - 5pm

Food & Drink

You’ll find delicious menus with dishes prepared from scratch by our talented chefs using carefully sourced, seasonal ingredients at all of the restaurants and cafes at Twycross Zoo. We only use free range eggs, sourced from Oakland Farm in Shropshire, our fish is sustainably sourced and our bananas are Fairtrade – we’re sure you’ll taste the difference.

The View Restaurant

The View Restaurant has family sharing and high quality, delicious meals at its heart.

Early birds can enjoy a breakfast of champions from 9am! Tuck into poached free-range egg, crispy smoked bacon and home-made baked beans; smashed ripe avocado, chilli, parsley and slow roasted tomatoes; cheesy rarebit and chives; plus lots more.

Throughout the day our kitchen and grill serves classic dishes such as beer-battered fish and chips and char-grilled chicken salad. Be tempted by our pastas and pizzas, all made to order using traditional neapolitan recipes. Children will love our mini steak sliders or spaghetti Bolognese as well as other dishes. A 3-course meal and drink is only £7.
