Relaxing and friendly welcome

Welcome to Plum Tree, your local neighbourhood café bar.

Come and spend some time with us and make yourself at home - whether it’s a breakfast or a business lunch; a coffee morning or a dinner for 2, a night out with friends or an afternoon chill, we have something for everyone. 

Babies are more than welcome during the day, and we’ve put in our very own pram park so that you don’t have to negotiate our tables and chairs like an obstacle course!

We have complimentary wi-fi throughout the building so feel free to bring the lap-top. Plus, we also have a selection of free newspapers for you to read and plenty of board games to keep you amused.

Live Jazz, open mic and a weekly quiz (a challenge for any Egghead), together with craft beers, ales and cocktails gives you the perfect excuse to meet up with friends any night of the week.


Looking for a gift for that hard-to-buy-for friend or relative? With our Brains gift cards you can give them the perfect present. Load them up at the bar with the value of your choice* and let your friends and family enjoy food, drinks or even a night’s stay at a Brains Inn of their choice.

Or maybe you know a budding beer enthusiast who would like to add to their collection? Our very own Brains Craft Brewery cans and original Brains Beers are now available in gift packs. Cheers!

*Minimum top-up value £5. Terms & Conditions apply. Visit for details.
