The Evening Post have written an article regarding our extended opening and drinks licence. See here.


We hope you are enjoying the deluxe evening meal and choice of drinks.


We have slightly changed our hours to a 6pm finish on a Sunday. This is because it has been very quiet. We will look to review this as the evenings get lighter. Please let us know if you have any opinions on this.


Finally, if you are or know a good chef, we are looking to recruit now that our opening times have increased.


14th February 2011


We have achieved a late licence!!!!!!


Chef has got an amazing new menu, that will change regularly. His Michelin experience is definitely coming into play now!!

Take a look here.


Don't forget that you can now enjoy your meal with a glass of wine, beer or spirit.


Our new opening hours are 9am - 11pm Wednesday to Sunday.


We are closing at 6 on Mondays and Tuesdays - for now.


Chef's night off is on Sunday, but we will still serve our complete range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, as well as paninis, cakes and snacks.


You must come and visit!!!!!


1st January 2011


Happy new year!!


What a year 2010 has been for us. This time last year T Cup was an empty shell. We have come a long way since then.


If you have a couple of minutes to spare, please fill out our customer satisfaction survey.  We have done this just to make sure we are providing you with all that want from T Cup.


We look forward to seeing you lots and lots next year.


21st December 2010


We are super pleased to announce that we can now serve alcohol from 12pm.


You can now enjoy a delicious range of wines, bottled beers and a draft Stella Artois (4%).


We hope this will make your Christmas lunch even more enjoyable. Please join us for a tipple.


5th December 2010


The Christmas menu has arrived!! Whether you want turkey and all the trimmings or something less traditional we have a great selection of feasts for you to try.


We are now taking bookings so please call or pop in to book your Christmas lunch or breakfast get together.


11th November 2010


I hope you have been in to taste our delightful new menu and quali-T Sunday roasts. Adam is helping us put together a great Christmas menu that we will be launching soon. His Michelin Star experiences should ensure some exciting variations on the traditional turkey theme.


I hope you enjoyed our spooky cup cakes made over halloween.


We are hoping to put in an application for later opening hours and an alcohol license over the next week. This will enable us to provide some really good quality food later in the evening, and also let you relax over a nice glass of wine.


If you have any thoughts regarding this, then please email us.


19th October 2010


We have another great new menu for you to try. 


Our succulent new dishes include Chef's Thai Green Curry. Adam attended cookery school in Thailand, so we are sure you will find this delicious.


The vegetarian lasagne introduced with our Sunday roasts is now available every day. There is also a flavour filled pork and vegetable stir fry. 


Breakfasts are still going really well and the great deal of a free T or coffee with English and veggie breakfasts is still available Monday - Thursday.


Also, don't forget to pop in for a luscious Sunday lunch.


3rd October 2010


What an amazing day!! Second Sunday doing roasts and it went brilliantly. You were all fantastic. We had some really positive comments.


A huge thanks to the team - Adam head chef, Georgia, Suzanne, Polly, Matt and Claire.


If you haven't tried it come next Sunday for a mouth watering feast and great friendly service.



25th September 2010


I am just making the final adjustments to our brand new Sunday dinner menu. We will now be serving traditional Sunday roasts with all the trimmings.


We have a choice of starters to choose from including a portabella mushroom topped with caramelised onion, bacon & brie.


This Sunday we have beef or pork roast, salmon fillet with a herb crust and a vegetarian lasagne to choose from. 


Following that, tuck into one of our mouth watering puddings including chefs apple pie.


The Sunday menu will be changing  regularly so let us know if you have a favourite dish.


25th August 2010


We had another great write up in Crackerjack - the food section of the Evening Post. Take a look. 


10th August 2010


We made the Evening Post. Read about our Head Chef Adam Powell.


21st July 2010


We were on Bristol Radio today.


20th July 2010


You asked, and we have now got a kids' menu, in addition to half portions on our lunch menu. Thanks for the mums who helped us write it.


Our main menu has changed again with a fab new stuffed chicken with smoked cheese wrapped in parma ham.


We have also got some delicious home-made salmon and dill fishcakes.


Out world T Cup promo went really well with loads of you trying out the World T Cup tagliatelle, burger and bangers and mash.


Signage is now everywhere at your request. We have drinks above the bar and a full menu on display. Aslso keep an eye out for the specials board, which is regularly changing with some amazing dishes.


We have now got some bay trees at our entrance which has always been part of my cafe dream!!


Bristol radio interviewed us today so so listen tomorrow at 11.30.



14th June 2010




Adam has come up with some amazing new additions. Glynn and I have sampled them and can vouch for how good they taste.


Amongst others we now have a chicken parmigiana which is heavenly. Glynn and I were fighting over the last mouthfuls of our sample.


The new chicken, bacon and avocado salad is divine. I had it for tea and found the hit of mango brought it to life.


We are also running some promos over the world T Cup. There will be £2 off selected dishes during games so don't miss out.


The World T Cup burger is home made and comes with bacon and mozzarella and is gorgeous. This is discounted during games along with our World T Cup mushroom tagliatelle and  World T Cup bangers and mash. (Seriously nice sausages!!)


Have a look at the menus to see what else has changed.

3rd June 2010


It is hard to believe we have been open nearly 3 weeks! 


We hope that you are all enjoying T Cup as a place to 'chillax' now that most of our teething issues are over.


Our outdoor furniture arrived last week so you can now enjoy the summer weather with a freshly pressed orange juice or cup of peppermint tea.


Adam the chef started today so menu updates will come soon.


Thanks for all the chats and support. We have really enjoyed getting to know you all :-) If you have any ideas for groups or activities, then please email them over.


25th May 2010


Sunday was the best roll out of breakfast we have done. John and Glynn worked brilliantly.


Good to see we are getting rated online now. More encouraging emails received so thanks for those. We will be getting some granulated sugar for espressos and have got some plastic cups now for our younger guests.


We will be getting loads of outdoor furniture this week which will be perfect if we get some more scorchers.


20th May 2010


This week has been great. We are really finding our feet and have enjoyed starting to get to know lots of you. We have taken on board many of your comments and are incorporating them into our service.


I have put up a sign indicating to pay at the bar at your request. We have also amended our hot drinks policy so that we now give them to you at the bar to avoid delay.


We have changed the menu so that half portions are available on many items to cater for our younger, smaller or less hungry customers. We have also added raisins as a snack. The menus are now laminated as card was no match for espresso...


I have some great photographs to add, hopefully tonight.


Keep the comments rolling :-)



16th May 2010


We had another really busy day. Great to see some familiar faces from Saturday.


I know we weren't perfect this weekend but thanks for all the support and advice. Lots to learn from!!


Staff did brilliantly from a standing start. We have seen areas to improve so will be implementing changes this week.


Highs = Glynn's pasta dish, definetely worth a try!!


Lows = mad start with not quite enough experience behind the team.


Looking forward to a week of training. Pop in for a mocha!!


15th May 2010


What an amazing opening day! We can not believe how many of you came!


We had some really encouraging comments and some great ideas on things to try on the menu.


Apologies for any teething problems that you may have endured. We were a little under staffed due to the unexpected volume combined with everyone being on their first day. I know that our hot drink service was not quite up to scratch so please forgive us. 


Lots of you said how great the food was which was brilliant to hear.


We have learnt lots of lessons today so will hopefully be much slicker tomorrow. Thank you for your patience and we hope to see you again, soon.


13th May 2010


Everything has stepped up a gear as we make preparations for our opening on Saturday.


The furniture is in, we are all now coffee experts having received our barista training, the fridges are full.


On Tuesday the Evening Post visited us for an interview. Please have a read here.


Hope to see you Saturday!!


7th May 2010


Most of the floor is down now and it is looking really good. A big thank you to Widget who has been working around the clock to get things finished.


The kitchen is nearly complete and we can't wait to get cooking.



3rd May 2010


The sign looks brilliant. Have a look in photos


Matt has been delivering loads more flyers so hopefully you have now received one.


Floor goes down this week. A few delivery delays have pushed the opening date back so we are now planning to open on Saturday 15th May. Please support us on our opening day :-)



21st April 2010


We have had some really positive comments emailed to us from you all following our mailing so thank you!! Later opening hours is a key issue. This is something that we hope to address once we are established.


Thanks to all who have requested job applications. We will be arranging to meet you soon.


Our Facebook group is growing fast.


Sign goes up on Friday which will make a huge difference. Exciting times!!


17th April 2010


Partial flyering complete. Some flyers left behind lost to puppy... Our labradoodle puppy decided to destroy about 200! Lesson learned - close all doors.


Despite the loss, we had a great day out in the sun chatting to lots of you!! Dog forgiven.


More flyering planned for tomorrow.


13th April 2010


We have paint!!


The place is really starting to feel like something special is happening.


We have also just received a delivery of 3,000 flyers to post, so a big walking weekend planned. Hopefully a few of you will have arrived at this site as a result of our mailing :-)


30th March 2010


The windows are now in place. We have some concertina windows that open totally to let the air flow through. This will keep everyone nice and cool in what will hopefully be a lovely warm summer.


We have a base coat on the walls and are experimenting with colours that will most probably be in-line with this website.


The outside walls are being rendered. The kitchen is on order.



18th March 2010


The plaster board is up!


News is a little bit thin on the ground as we are still renovating but every day brings us closer to our proposed opening date of 26th April.


The stud walls are up in the toilets where we have a spacious baby changing come disabled facility as well as male and female cubicles and a stylish wash area.


The hygenic surfaces have been put in place ready for the open plan kitchen to be fitted the week after next.


Half the windows are in, the wiring and plumbing set ready for action.


All of the team are doing an amazing job. Will try and get some pictures up soon.
