About The Bell Plantation Cafe

The Plantation Cafe was created in 2009 to bring the people of Northamptonshire fresh, home-made food in a relaxing and enjoyable environment. It was our intention to bring you delicious, simple English food that is made as fresh as possible.

We absolutely stick by that today and that’s why our Cafe is increasing in popularity all the time. Our team works very hard to bring you this food as well as delicious fresh coffee with a smile on their face.

The Cafe is a place to relax and spend time with your friends and family with solid wood floors, brick walls and a roaring fire in winter. Alternatively, sit outside and take in the sun or try out our new seating area in our extended glasshouse.

At breakfast, you can have anything from simple toast to a full English breakfast. Mid-morning, we serve delicious barista-made coffee and home-made cakes.

At lunch, you can have a simple home-made sandwich, a baguette, jacket potato, lasagne or choose from one of our specials on the board. In the afternoon you can relax with a cup of tea and a slice of cake or try a full-blown afternoon tea (Monday – Saturday from 3pm).
