This please is exceptionally jolly and gives you a journey through African cuisine. The BBQ meat is cooked to perfection. The staff are kind and attentive. Well worth a trip if you're in the area.

You can never go wrong with one of the banquets. Great quality, amazing flavours, and a real belly full. Friendly service, and you can complement the meal with your own choice of drinks

Been here a number of times and food is always delicious. If you are looking for great food that is excellent value in a very friendly atmosphere, you won't be disappointed at C&Ws. I can't pick a favourite as its all good, but I really enjoy the African Banquet.

The food was amazing and I loved the personal touch where you were informed when your food would be out and how it was cooked.

This is the second time we have eaten here and as always the flavours are spot on. Loved the new premises in Gloucester, although hard to find, a bigger sign is needed! As usual the staff are delightful.Looking forward to the new cocktail lounge!

We went here for my Mums 60th birthday. There were 12 of us of all different ages, tastes and allergies, including vegetarian and gluten free. We contacted the restaurant and placed our order from the website a few days before. When we arrived we were greeted with a lovely reception like we were regular customers even though I had only...

Travelled with friends to visit this restaurant. This is the second time we have eaten here and as always the flavours were spot on. Loved the new premises in Gloucester, although hard to find, a bigger sign is needed! As usual the staff are delightful. A very pleasant experience all round. If in Gloucester this is a "must" to visit!

We had a family lunch party here to celebrate my husband's 60th and daughter's 21st (yes, on the same day!), and Charlie, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful in making sure we had everything we wanted. The food was superb - delicious barbecued meats, spicy vegetables, plantains and cassava chips. We brought in our own drinks including champagne, hung... More

Wish there were more restaurants like this. Love everything about this place! Booking is essential. This is a place you "plan" to come to. You place your order the day before and relax in the knowledge that they are buying and preparing your specific portion (along with those of the other diners that night) and not randomly cooking loads of...
