New Summer Menu for Thomas Restaurant in Cardiff

It is fair to say that the team in Thomas Restaurant at Future Inn Cardiff are passionate about food. Their whole ethos is around using local produce to create a Welsh themed menu with traditional dishes. See what's on the new summer menu...

Unlike many other restaurants, all of the mouth-watering dishes are made on site using local, fresh ingredients.  The chefs have the freedom to create their own menus and cook them from scratch.  As all of the food is homemade, it means that those who have an allergy or require gluten free, dairy free or even a vegan menu can be catered for. 

The elegant restaurant is a cosy but bright space filled with comfortable booths and stylish furniture.  It has gained an excellent reputation as a perfect setting for a family celebration, a catch up with friends, client meeting or an intimate dinner for two.

The new summer menu

The dishes are indeed colourful and full of flavour.  The new brunch menu has traditional breakfast items, as well as healthy options including the signature banana split served with avocado, strawberries, natural yoghurt, honey and toasted almonds.  Some of the lighter bites on the lunch menu are an artisan homemade bread basket with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sundried tomato butter and olives or a grilled tuna steak niçoise.
