Perkins Bar & Bistro,
35 years in the making…

The last few years have been incredibly exciting for The Perkins Family; we’ve learnt a lot from the opening of baresca and escabeche, together with listening to friends and locals of Perkins.

We’re taking that new, modern outlook and implementing it at the location where it all began for our family 35 years ago.

Our Food Philosophy.

Perkins Bar & Bistro offers the dishes we have fallen in love with over the last three decades – all to be enjoyed in a relaxed and informal space – modern and classic seasonal dishes that commit to ingredients sourced from quality suppliers, local when possible.

We have an honest approach to cooking, letting great ingredients speak for themselves to produce freshly cooked dishes served without fuss.

Perkins Family Venues.

The Perkins Family led by sons Jon & David and Chef Director Sarah Newham continue to grow a small group of restaurants and venues in and around Nottingham committed to delivering exceptional customer experiences.
