Built for the Festival of Britain in the 1950’s, the historic Milkmaid Pavilion that houses Alfresco has undergone a number of dramatic changes since being taken over by the restaurant family in 1996. This culminated in the triumph of constructing a glass restaurant on the roof of the existing building. Occupied by squatters in the mid-1990’s the building had to be completely renovated from scratch and was completed with the erection of the glass restaurant in the Millennium year.
