Brewhouse and Kitchen at Gloucester Quays has been open for a little while now, but its somewhere I have never been before, so when I was very kindly asked by the team there if I would like to review the new Autumn menu, I was very excited to give it a go.
The Gloucester Quays branch is not only a restaurant, but also runs an in-house microbrewery – which is a huge hit for the beer lovers amongst us.
Taking along my boyfriend to enjoy the new menu as well, we arrived on a Wednesday evening, to our already reserved table. Our Waitress, Sophie, took as to our table and told us about the Specials that were on the men that evening. Sophie also let us know that an unexpected table of 14 had just arrived, without a booking, and so there was a slight delay on food.
The new menu had only been running for a few days, but there was so many amazing looking dishes on there – I really struggled to make a decision on my started, let alone anything else! In the end I went for Rosemary & Cherry Tomato Focaccia, and my boyfriend had the Chicken Satay for starters.
Both starters were delicious, and just enough to fill a little gap. I’m not keen on starters that are so big, you then cant enjoy your main course – but this was just the perfect amount.
Despite our waitress saying there was a slight delay on food that evening, our main course arrived super quickly and very efficiently – so I definitely don’t have any concern in that department! I chose the New Yorker Burger and my boyfriend chose the Battered Cod & Chips.
My burger was completely delicious, and I adored the skin-on fries that came with the burger. I was really surprised at how big my main meal was, with plenty of fries. My boyfriend devoured every last mouthful of his fish and chips, claiming ‘it was so good, I didn’t even have any ketchup’ This coming from a man who puts ketchup on pretty much every meal, I think is a winner!
When our waitress, Sophie offered us the desert menu, we both almost said no from being so full, but I am so glad we did in the end, otherwise we would have missed out on some incredible puddings. I succumbed and had the Buttermilk Pancakes with Salted Caramel Sauce and my boyfriend had the Maple, Bourbon and Pecan Tart.
I think I died and went to pudding heaven!
The restaurant itself is decorated really nicely, and feels quite homely and relaxing, especially with the incredible central table, with a built in fireplace. I can imagine this would be amazing for a Friday night catch up with friends over some of the different and exciting beers that were on the menu.
We both really enjoyed our meal, and the service we received from not only our waitress, Sophie, but Shane, the Assistant Manager was incredible – thank you.
We will defenetly be paying another visit to the Gloucester Brewhouse and Kitchen. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was incredible, even for a Wednesday night, and I am yet to try one of those incredible Beers – the Hog’s Back Chocolate Lager caught my eye – one for next time for sure!
