Croeso & Welcome to Thomas Restaurant

The home of Welsh Cuisine 


The welcoming, cosy restaurant in the heart of Cardiff Bay is open to the public as well as hotel residents for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, evening a-la-carte and traditional roasts on Sundays.

Thomas Restaurant is located in Future Inn Cardiff and serves British food, as well as contemporary and traditional Welsh cuisine. We pride ourselves on providing the best, mouth-watering dishes using fresh local ingredients. 

The restaurant has gained an excellent reputation and is the perfect setting for a family celebration, a catch up with friends, a client meeting or an intimate dinner for two.  

Our food is presented in an informal relaxed manner and is served all day, every day. There’s a wide range of beer, lager and wine on offer – almost all of which are available by the glass, as well as the bottle. Naturally, there’s a good choice of soft drinks too, including refreshing fruit juices, tea, coffee and hot chocolate.

All of our dishes are homemade on site. We use local and fresh produce to give you a true Taste of Wales.
