Our Story

The Coconut Tree is more than just a bar and restaurant. We are a family. We began as a group of friends in London, we relocated in 2016 to make a dream reality. What simply started off as finding a place to call home above a pub ended with us taking over the whole building, 59 St Paul’s Road. After a swift 6 month renovation project, The Coconut Tree was born. We’re super chuffed to have won so many awards to date from

  • The Observer ‘Best Value Eats’ SW 17/18 Runner up,

  • Best Restaurant Bar In Gloucestershire,

  • The Cheltenham Awards 2018 Best Bar & Restaurant and many more.

We’ve expanded our team and are opening in new territories where we will aspire to serve the very best Sri Lankan street food and innovative drinks. ‘Cocotails’ are our signature serve, some in ceramics made in Sri Lanka and some with a Sri Lankan spirit made from coconut flower nectar.

We aim to deliver the best food and drink with a warm vibrant atmosphere in a stripped back ‘street style’ environment with great tunes.

We think of our customers and everyone working at The Coconut Tree as our extended family, we want to bring everyone our warm Sri Lankan hospitality. You’ll often hear us quoting ‘Everyone is welcome to the table’ - because they are.

The Ox Magazine coined a great phrase we hope you agree…
“IT’S YOUTHFUL AND AUTHENTIC, COOL AND ENERGETIC, OUTRAGEOUSLY DELICIOUS AND IMPROBABLY AFFORDABLE"

THE COCONUT TREE MANTRA

 

Don’t expect a napkin…….it’s a roll of paper towels
Do expect an explosion of flavours in our dishes and sweet & fiery Cocotails
Do expect candles in half coconuts
Don’t expect a massive food bill…but do expect to spoil yourself with drinks
Do expect meats, fish & veggies (lots)
Do expect warm Sri Lankan hospitality
Don’t expect the volume to stay down too long
