Pavilion Cafe opens in style at Williamson Park

John Freeman

Local families were in for a treat at the opening of the Pavilion Café at Williamson Park on Saturday.

The café re-opened its doors to show off the modern updated interior and brand new menu packed with delicious local produce. Free entry to the Butterfly House was available to twenty lucky families and many people took up the opportunity of a discounted entry fee to the butterfly house and mini beast cave.

Lancaster City Council’s Play Rangers were also on hand with their legendary water slide.

The celebrations started by Mrs Lathom, a renowned local baker, officially opening the café. The café now stocks many of Lathoms of Broughton’s specialities including mouthwatering treats such as banoffee pie and yummy cheesecakes.

The café menu has also undertaken a transformation and as well as something for the sweet tooth, there is something to satisfy the savoury palette. Local cheese producer Singleton’s are supplying the café with their products that are accompanied by pickles and relish from the Hawkeshead Relish Company.
