Musical summer lined up at Pittville Pump Room portico heritage café

Thousands of you have been enjoying our outdoor takeaway cafes at Pittville Pump Room portico and the Garden Bar in Imperial Gardens since we opened on June 22, and being able to meet friends and family safely, enjoy great food and drink in lovely locations and safe, socially distanced dancing. Following the success of the first Swing in the Park weekend we’ve lined up a summer of outside musical weekends and great food and drink offers at the heritage café.


Every coffee and cake, draught beer, panini, breakfast bap, ice cream, afternoon tea and glass of Pimms you buy at our cafes supports The Cheltenham Trust, as a charity, to come through these challenging times and to be in a better position to re-open the iconic venues we manage, when government guidance allows. Thank you for your continuing support.
