We love this restaurant. It is easily one of the best in the West Bridgford area. A little off the beaten track if you’re just passing through but well worth a visit. The service here is excellent - very polite and relaxed. The menu is...More

Never disappointing with comfortable surroundings, this has remained our favourite restaurant with exceptional friendly service and an extensive menu offering delicious food. A sympathetically converted former railway station in a semi rural setting and we no longer need a special celebration for our visits. Highly...More

Three of us had Sunday lunch here at the old railway station. The service was first class as was the setting. I loved the pate followed by roast pork with extra crackling. 10 out of 10.

Dear Ross, Thank you so much for your 5 star review. We think our Sunday roasts are one of the best but we are a little biased! We hope to see you again soon. Kindest regards, Heather

Description
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.
