John Franklin’s is a place for everybody. It is for those who like a quiet coffee alone with a good book, or friends who want to catch up over hot drinks and cake. It is for business people who need a place to get on with work productively, 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, and a place to stop by before going to the theatre for some pre-show refreshments.

John Franklin’s welcomes everyone, and it 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 a glass of wine. Why not make an evening of it and sample some of the sensational cocktails?

With its very own Deli counter, you can enjoy a selection of locally produced cheeses, chutneys and relishes, alongside cured meats and traditional cheese toasties, which are served until 3pm.

John Franklin’s can be accessed from Guildhall Road or from Royal & Derngate foyer. The opening hours are:

Mon – Thu 9am-7pm
Fri – Sat 9am-midnight
Sunday 12pm-11pm
