A complete face lift (following the demise of the dreadfully disappointing Tootsies), new owners and a re-furbished garden patio have made this a firm favourite with local business users and food-lovers. A definite French feel (most of the staff appear French) with international influences on the menu and wine list. The garden area is a courtyard – not well known enough to get crowded – plus the reastaurant looks into an open kitchen and there’s a conservatory area if too nippy to sit out.
The weekend brunch option is an innovation at weekends – smoothies, cereals, butties (old spot Gloucester sausages) plus the standard full English breakfast (w/black pudding).
The main reastaurant menu is extensive, to say the least…
The ‘Shared’ option is great if you fancy a ‘grazing’ lunch – there’s a mezze option and an Asian platter. The service is attentive and friendly – requests to move table were dealt with swiftly and un-fussily. I’d recommend reviewing the menu on the website before you visit – we always take way too long and change our minds right up to the point of ordering.
If you’re dining alone then you can request to sit at the bar – which is spacious and very pleasant.
As it’s T Wells it’s not cheap – Fish, Chips, Mushy Peas and tartare sauce is £13.95, an 8 oz fillet steak £18.75.
