John Franklin's

John Franklin’s, located on Guildhall Road, is proving to be a great place for socialising or business.

Since opening in November 2016, John Franklin’s has been serving great tasting food from pastries at breakfast through to cheese and cured meats from its deli throughout the day and into the evening ('til 3pm for toasties!).

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’.

Looking for a venue that has class, sophistication and is versatile for any time of the day or any social occasion?

Opening bright and early from 8am (10am Sundays), freshly brewed coffee, tea and hot chocolate are prepared by the baristas, and why not add a fresh pastry or cake to start your day. Takeout is available if time is against you.

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

With free wifi and a ‘quiet zone’, John Franklin’s is ideal for those meetings where you want a change of scenery to wow a client or catch up with a colleague.

John Franklin’s is the place to be. It can be a meeting point for you and your friends before hitting the town, or it can be the place you stay until late.

It’s great for a quiet coffee alone with a good book, or chatting over coffee and 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 go 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.


John Franklin’s has a new website coming soon, but in the meantime you can contact them on 01604 655790 or follow on Facebook and Twitter (@jfranklinsbar) for regular updates, delicious food photos and daily reasons to visit.
