We've been here a few times and they never disappoint. The customer service is impeccable, the cocktails are lovely and the food is delicious. They always go above and beyond to accommodate my gluten free diet and when having an after dinner coffee I couldn't...More

This was our second visit for the taster menu and like last time what a joy it was. The food and the staff were fantastic. Nothing negative to say, thanks for a great evening and will hopefully be back for October.

Perkins Bar & Bistro, located at Plumtree's beautiful former Victorian Railway station, enjoyed an exciting transformation in 2016. Emerging as Perkins Bar & Bistro to fanfare from critics and public alike, the new eaterie offers food that's modern and fresh. There are sharer-board starters, 'Bistro bites', main plates and daily specials using ingredients from Perkins' very own smokehouse. There's an ever-changing daily Prix Fixe, Afternoon Teas and Perkins' Sunday offering is extended until 5pm - modern and classic seasonal dishes that commit to ingredients sourced from quality suppliers, local when possible. In terms of interior, think rustic tables, brass light fittings and bar seats amid reclaimed textures and materials. The re-designed interior offers a relaxed countryside bistro feel, somewhere you'd be equally happy to pop in for a pint and a snack or enjoy lunch or dinner.
