Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market Perch & Co, an exceptionally well presented cafe bistro which established itself in this vibrant village just over 6 years ago.
Perch & Co is an independent award winning healthy and delicious bistro, coffee shop, bar and caterer which is renowned for its fresh menu offering both Persian/Mediterranean food along with British classics served with their own twist! There is an extensive food/drinks menu available to enjoy both inside or to takeaway as well as a popular line of artisan groceries and wines.
All food is made fresh to order and includes a great choice of vegan, vegetarian and meaty dishes to appeal to all tastes!
Perch & Co currently offer breakfast, all day brunch, daily/weekly specials & quesadillas.
All ingredients are sourced locally where possible - eggs/milk delivered from local farms and meat supplied by the local butcher.
As you can see from the business photographs attached, the delightful cafe space offers a distinct rustic warm feel from the vintage crockery it uses to present both food/drinks to the handwritten labels and jam jars for their juices.
In addition to their ever changing food menu, there is an extensive choice barista made coffees, smoothies, fruit juices and teas to delicious wines, beers and seasonal cocktails.
Our clients have introduced live music evening events, comedy nights and spectacular jazz performances (every last Friday of the month) to complement the core daytime trade.
Our clients can also offer the ‘Perch & Co’ experience to enjoy at your own home or workplaces with an external catering menu now available.
