Opposite the gateway to the Zoo is the Zoo Bar. It is not part of the Zoo but when we finished our visit to the Zoo, we popped across the road for a quick soft drink to counteract the on-going heatwave.
We were not intending staying long but we remained there longer than planned. We decided to have a snack of fries though not a large meal - we had plans for the evening and did not want to spoil our appetite. The good service from staff at the Zoo Bar is also worth mentioning.
