Gift Shops & Dining

Starting September 7, 2021, the only food venues available on weekdays for the remainder of the zoo season will be the Deli (located across from the petting zoo and behind Galliford’s) and Galliford’s Restaurant & Tavern. Visit for current menus and hours. Additional food venues may be open on weekends.

Note: Certain food stands and gift shops are weather dependent, and some may only be open during peak times during our season. We cannot always guarantee what smaller food and retails venues may be available on any given day during season. The Purple Peacock Gift Shop is open daily during the zoo season, and Galliford’s remains open year-round.

Southwick’s Zoo offers a variety of retail and food venues through out the zoo for visitors to enjoy. Our primary gift shop, the Purple Peacock, and our full-service restaurant, Galliford’s Restaurant & Tavern, are located near the zoo’s main entrance.
