John Franklin's Story

John Franklin’s is the place for everybody, come for a quiet coffee alone with a good book, or come for a chat and a drink with a slice of cake with friends. It’s for business people who need a place to get on with work, or a place for the whole team to sit down and discuss business over lunch.

It’s where you can come for a first date to share a cheeseboard and a bottle of wine, a place to stop by before going to the theatre for some pre-show refreshments and more. John Franklin’s welcomes anyone and everyone looking for a place to visit and does it with style.

Being centrally located it’s a great place to start your evening with a selection of traditional craft beers like BrewDog Punk IPA or maybe you prefer a fine wine? Why not make an evening of it and sample some of the amazing cocktails. Your bartender will shake up the perfect Pornstar Martini or Peach Bellini. If gin's your thing, then why not go for the popular ‘Berry Good’.

With it’s very own Deli counter, you can enjoy the selection of locally produced cheeses, chutneys, relishes and cured meats all day, with traditional toasties served until 6pm. Whether it’s sharing with friends or colleagues, you can enjoy great tasting food anytime of the day.
