The Restaurant@Poplars

Our award-winning restaurant, which opened in March 2016 has the best food, the best drinks and the best service around and is the perfect place to grab a bite to eat.  Combining fresh and contemporary décor in a relaxed and informal atmosphere, the 300+ seat Restaurant@Poplars features three separate seating areas, all designed with you in mind.  And of course we have what everyone wants these days – FREE WIFI.  The Restaurant@Poplars will definitely have you coming back for more.

Little Beans Coffee bar, with its soft seating and views over the plant area is the ideal location to take a break from shopping or meet up with friends for coffee (and a sneaky piece of delicious cake). Our state of the art coffee machines together with our Barista trained staff means you are guaranteed the perfect cup of coffee every time. Or if that’s not your cup of tea then why not opt for a nice traditional cuppa or try our range of speciality teas.  And of course a cup of tea is not complete without a fresh homemade scone with cream and jam!

The bright and spacious dining area is ideal for families to sit and enjoy some of our wonderful home-made food.  Whether it’s one of our daily specials from the hot counter, a sandwich or baguette from our fantastic freshly made range or a deliciously cooked-to-order pizza, there really is something to suit everyone.

And finally for our customers with younger children, there is our wonderful kid’s area with colourful seating and lots of things to keep the little ones amused.

Our chefs pride themselves on using only the freshest local produce, creating some truly mouth-watering dishes for you to enjoy in our family-friendly restaurant.


Breakfast Is Served!

Join us for breakfast every morning until 11.30am and start the day the right way with the most important meal of the day. Choose from our extensive continental cold breakfast with a choice of cereals, grapefruit, greek yogurt with granola, fresh fruit salad or a cheese & ham croissant (delicious hot or cold). Or why not try a lovely smoked salmon bagel with added scrambled egg if you prefer.  For the bigger appetite we have our traditional cooked breakfast selection. Choose from 5 items or 9 (if you’re really hungry!).  Alternatively we have a bacon or sausage sandwich, egg or beans on toast or the mighty breakfast baguette with bacon, 2 sausages & a fried egg! Hungry after reading all this? Well come down and get stuck in!


Delicious Lunchtime Meals

Our broad range offers something for everyone. We actually get told off for having too much choice! From toasties to jacket potatoes, sandwiches to sausage rolls.  There’s freshly made pizzas and paninis, delicious baguettes and a capacious salad bar. And on top of all this, there’s our fabulous hot counter, serving homemade soups and locally sourced, freshly produced main meals. We serve 5 options each day, from minute steak, various homemade pies, salmon in dill sauce, cod and chips, vegetarian bakes and our delicious Hunter’s chicken! There are also some worldly favourites such as chicken tikka masala with a nann bread or sweet and sour pork with crispy prawn crackers.
Oh and if that wasn’t enough, every day we also offer a carvery joint (2 joints on a Sunday). Choose from beef, gammon, chicken, turkey or lamb (dependent on the day).

There is certainly always something for every taste at the Restaurant@Poplars (singing included!).
