Our Story

The Coconut Tree is more than just a bar and restaurant. We are a family. We began as a group of friends with a dream in London and relocated to Cheltenham in 2016 to make this dream a reality. What simply started off as finding a place to call home ended with us taking over 59 St Paul’s Road with the pub underneath. After a swift 6 month renovation project, The Coconut Tree was born. We aspire to serve the very best Sri Lankan street food and innovative drinks within a cool, quirky environment. The Coconut Tree is our home and we want all of our our customers to feel part of this family.



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
