A bottle shop named “Plonk” inspired Sweet Amber Brew. Initially Dane Adkins wanted to open a takeaway bottle shop, but after discovering too many licensing hurdles, he decided to open a small cafe-bar instead.

Adkins and partner Rachael Jones quench their customers’ thirst with four rotating taps (one dedicated to house beers) and a large triple-door fridge crammed with bottled beers and ciders. Wood-fired pizza (topped with beer-infused meats and sauces) and charcuterie platters prove a good match.

Homely couch seating is contrasted with high bench tables that spill out onto the main street. The restaurant flows through to a beer garden where you can bathe in the sun at one of many picnic tables. There’s often a family friendly vibe.

Month-to-month the venue displays works by a different local artist. There are also fire pit and marshmallow events in winter, brew days by local brewers and appearances by local food trucks to add variety to the menu.
