Welcome to the World Famous Percy’s, an exciting Shropshire Cafe Bar and Music Venue, based at The Star Hotel, Watergate St, Whitchurch, Shropshire. There is no other cafe bar like this on the planet! We also buy and sell antiques.
Here at Percy’s Cafe Bar we pride ourselves in serving you the finest Coffee and Drinks while you sit and relax in a friendly and quirky environment.
Percy’s Cafe Bar is a place of no particular style and the zany interior decor changes frequently. On permanent display we have a Silver Age Jukebox playing music from all eras – our favourite item for the children, a Moose Head (pictured in the Gallery section), A Victorian female human skull, Funeral Parlour items and much much more. You can chill out on theatre seats dating from 1910, Aircraft Seats, sit on industrial stools or even an original Dentists Chair, if you dare. The panoramic photo shows 180 degree view of our Tiger Room which houses 2 full taxidermied Tigers dating from 1863, a full genuine Giraffe skeleton and a full genuine human skeleton. The Tigers are amongst the oldest examples in the World. Percy’s are proud to support the WWF to protect 5 endangered animals including Bengal Tigers and are members of the North West Zoological Society
Percy’s coffees are supplied by the world renowned Hasbean Coffee Company and we always great blends on offer.
We have exclusive Milkshakes with flavours matching our unusual shop.
THE BAR and MUSIC
We are also a Fully Licensed Award Winning Bar and LIVE MUSIC venue with bands from around the world attending our venue . We have full night club lighting, sound, lasers, smoke and much more. We sell Beers, Wines, Ciders and selected Spirits. We have our very own legendary 8.4% Suicider (still apple cider) and drinks that are exclusive to ourselves, and on weekends we party until the early hours. We sell ice cold Jagermeister and Red Stripe Beer in tins along with shots that can be selected by the spin of a wheel and magnetic darts. Those who are tempted by something a little stronger may try a shot of Poteen (180% proof), Goslings Black Seal Rum (151% proof) or sample one of over 20 Absinthes including our own, made by us in partnership with La Fee, France Absinthe Oeil de Dave (Daves Eye Absinthe) which contains a prosthetic eye belonging to our patron and friend….Dave!
