The Gower Kitchen

Eating Out

The Gower Kitchen is a place to meet, eat and relax, we offer a relaxed dining experience from brunch through to dinner. Open from 11am until 11pm, we offer a fantastic brunch menu, coffee and cakes all day, and lunch and dinner from our seasonal chalkboard menu using the finest local fresh produce.
The retro inspired style of The Gower Kitchen ensures it is a place where you will love to hang out, the bold wallpaper, exposed brick and original features are a feast for the eyes and the quirky artwork makes sure you'll never tire of things to look at.

At the Gower Kitchen we are pashionate and proud of our food. Our food is simple, seasonal, fresh and has a certain rustic charm. Our ever changing caulk board menu is carefully put together to cater for everyone and ensures you'll always have something new to try. We pride ourselves on being versitle and helpful so if anyone has any specific requirements (within reason!) with a bit of notice we can always provide.

If food isn't your thing, you may want to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere with a drink.

We are proud to serve Segafredo coffee and a choice of Tea Pigs teas (they go rather well with our homemade cake selection). Afternoon tea is served on authentic vintage china which adds to the experience at Gower Kitchen.

We have a wine list with something for everyone from the fruity house Sauvignon Blanc to a fine 2009 Sancerre.

We serve a small (but carefully selected) collection of draught beer/cider/ale, we would recommend you try Staropramen, our star premium draught lager, one of our house cocktails or a classic tipple from our well stocked bar. Don't worry we haven't forgotten the designated drivers, we stock a range of thirst quenching soft drinks too.

The Gower Kitchen began its renovation in December 2011; it was in a sorry state as it had lain empty and unloved for a few years, last operated as an Indian restaurant. The building is listed and has a feature curved window frontage, original tiles and beautiful stained glass panels all of which have been brought back to life by the GK boys. Near complete renovation was needed, from stripping the walls to replacing the floorboards, much love and dedication has been spent on bringing39 Uplands Crescentback to its former glory. The Gower Kitchen's interior is inspired by ‘retro' and is a mix of reclaimed chairs, tables, floorboards and lampshades and vintage inspired wallpapers, prints and materials. The layout comprises of the main eating area which seats around 45 and a ‘snug' area at the rear conveniently next to the bar where you can enjoy a more chilled atmosphere and maybe a cocktail or two.


I have visited well over 500 restaurants, cafés, tea rooms not forgetting the odd ice cream parlour thrown in for good measure, however the Gower Kitchen is one of my favourite bistros in Wales. It's hard to relay in only a few short words all of the reasons why I like the Gower Kitchen so much, but to start, the environment can't be beat. From the amazingly patterned wall papered walls, to the outstanding yet honest food they produce, this bistro just removes you mentally from the hustle and bustle of the city. Every dish is prepared at a very high level and I have never heard of anyone having a bad meal here at all.

But one of the things I love most about the Gower Kitchen is the people. Yes, the owners Stuart & Chris and their fine team of staff are the backbone of this fine establishment, but it's the customers as well. It's just an amazing place to sit in, have a glass of your favourite wine and people watch some the coolest people in Swansea. It maybe a little bistro, but for me this is Swansea at it's finest. So whether it's a special occasion, or to hang with friends, or even a romantic meal with your betrothed, I can guarantee in my professional opinion you won't be disappointed.

Cozy and casual, "Worldly Cuisine" is best to describe the food here, with amazing culinary creativity, The Gower Kitchen is everything you'd want in a casual, neighbourhood bistro, one that you can frequent affordably on a monthly basis.

First off, the food was fantastic. I had one of the best lamb dishes I've ever had and my dessert was perfect and well balanced. Medium sized wine list but in my opinion there was enough variety and value for most people. Overall, I can't recommend this hidden gem of a restaurant enough. But after the night I witnessed, I am sure I would not be alone in highly recommending The Gower Kitchen to all of my readers.
