Pistachios confirms interest in our park

Pistachios in the Park have confirmed their interest in working with the Council to create a cafe in Hilly Fields, an idea that Mayor Bullock recently gave his support to.

The company already operates popular cafes in parks in Hither Green and East Greenwich (among others) and told us that they believe Hilly Fields has all the ingredients for a successful park cafe, with the right level of community use to support a business.

They stressed that the project was still at an early stage in planning the but said they are "keen to continue working with the council to offer a soulution which will benefit the local community."

It was a visit to their Manor Gardens cafe a few years ago, which first convinced BC that a Hilly Fields cafe would be a success, so it's heartening to know that an experienced, high-quality operator is interested in taking on the project.

They've done a brilliant job in East Greenwich Pleasaunce, and that isn't half as promising a spot as Hilly Fields is.

Didn't they used to have a cafe on the one-way bit in the centre of Greenwich (Nelson Rd?) Would be excellent to have them in Hilly Fields.

Yay, great news. The cafe at Manor Park Gardens is brilliant and exactly the sort of thing we need at Hilly Fields. Fingers crossed it goes ahead - and quickly too!

quick brown fox - yes they did. I had my first job there in 1989. The tales I could tell ...

mmm i agree with Tamsin. Their crepes are delicious, the cafe in manor house gardens has some of the tastiest and well presented food in the South east london parks. The decor is great and the park is so beautiful anyway but the cafe is the cherry on top. I haven't been to East Greenwich pleasaunce but may check it out sometime.

but Hilly fields isn't a park (in the official sense) with gates so potentially the cafe could be quite vulnerable to break ins at night time...

What to steal the crepe recipe? The scoundrels!

I'm not sure park gates do much to deter break-ins. The cafe in Dulwich Park has been broken into several times and that's a gated park. The best comparison is Peckham Rye Park cafe. Wonder how they've fared.

You don't refuse to buy a house because of the threat of burlaries, so why should this stop a cafe in the park?
