Ampersand launches zoo-inspired children’s afternoon tea at ZSL London Zoo

Ampersand, CH&Co Group’s specialist visitor attraction catering division, has introduced a delicious and fun children’s afternoon tea to ZSL London Zoo’s Terrace Restaurant. Inspired by a day out at the Zoo, the new offer will be the icing on the cake of an already exciting day for children.


The specially-created menu features tasty treats, specially shaped and designed to look like kid’s favourite animal characters, enabling families to continue the magic of their Zoo visit whilst enjoying delightful food. Children will get their paws on animal-shaped sandwiches, lion cupcakes, a sprinkled cake pop and milkshake, all beautifully presented on a miniature picnic bench. Paul Jackson, managing director at Ampersand, comments: “The new children’s afternoon tea is a fantastic addition to ZSL London Zoo’s Terrace Restaurant menu. Inspired by the Zoo’s famous and favourite residents, the contents and presentation have been cleverly designed to bring the fun of visiting the Zoo into the restaurant. We understand the importance and value of creating a family friendly dining experience that works for children and adults alike, and our new children’s afternoon tea offer ticks all the boxes. From the sandwiches through to the cupcakes, the children will have fun identifying the animals as well as enjoying delicious food, which parents and carers can be sure are made with the best quality ingredients.” Rich Storton, commercial and communications director at ZSL London Zoo, said: “Ensuring visitors of all ages have a wonderful day is so important to us here at ZSL London Zoo, and we’re proud of our creative catering on offer. A visit to the Zoo is an exciting experience for children and by ensuring the fun continues at feeding time with this animal-themed afternoon tea, we can be confident that kids will be fully-fuelled for exploring, and the magic and memories will last a lifetime.” The new children’s afternoon tea is available in the Terrace Restaurant at ZSL London Zoo. For a limited period each children’s afternoon tea is free with every adult afternoon tea purchased *.
