WOW! Blown away!

Even before we arrived, you knew this was going to be good. The owner called us a few hours before arrival to confirm everything, suggesting some additions to what we'd pre-booked and he was spot on. The welcome and service throughout was incredibly warm - it was like we were long lost friends... read more

We visited on a Monday lunch-time, having found the restaurant recommended on a local vegan website. The owner gave us a warm welcome and was very friendly. Despite there not being a set lunch menu, she promised they would make us some food suitable for vegans and certainly didn't disappoint. We received a black bean stew, Chick pea and butternut...

Visited on Monday the 20th July 2015. Restaurant is normally closed on this day but another party had booked so the owner also let us book. I'm glad we did. The most welcoming and different restaurant in Gloucester. The owner sat down and chatted to us. Explained about each dish and how the business was started. We had more than... More

Went here and it was such a delightful experience, we were made to feel like guests rather than customers. Staff were happy and friendly, food was fantastic. Will be back soon.

My wife and I were in Gloucester very recently and were looking for somewhere to have an evening meal, so we looked on Tripadvisor and this restaurant came up as number 1 in the city, so we booked a table. There was a bit of confusion initially about the address and we discovered this was due to them having recently... More

We went tonight for my husbands birthday treat. Delightful place and wonderful atmosphere. The couple who run it are extremely friendly. It's like being a guest in their home. The food was excellent. We will definitely return again and again

We were made to feel so at home in this lovely restaurant in a great location - almost opposite Gloucester cathedral. The fried plantain combined wonderfully with the rice and varied meat dishes, and the butternut squash and chickpea dish: delicious! Great music too. Our 2 year old also loved it!

Try something different and eat at C and Ws. Ring Charles up and preorder, bring your own booze and enjoy the African Experience. We have been several times and loved it all. Try the African bar b que, tender, well cooked meats, a variety of African curries and sides.
