Great atmosphere and the design of this place is beautiful. I have been in here a couple of time previously for drinks, and decided to try the food. It did not disappoint. Great variety of food on the menu with some healthy options too. The food came out quickly and beautifully presented, but most importantly it was very tasty. The service was also good the waitress was very helpful yet could have been more attentive.

Too loud, even to speak to the person opposite. And the waiting staff were way too slow. I gave up and went to order drinks at the bar instead.

Quite over lunch with just a couple of tables. The staff outnumbered the customers but it still had issues with service and general housekeeping standards. Menu is confused and chicken burger was not cooked properly. Don't think we would go again.

We were a bit old for the target clientele at this restaurant - the music was a bit too loud for us but we were pleased with the service and the food was not bad at all. not too pricey. A good place for people a bit younger than us old fogies

Great restaurant for a family lunch. Menu was great, the drinks were varied and interesting. The service was very good and the price was reasonable for the quality we experienced. Great afternoon and we will return.

Lovely restaurant and I wouldn't hesitate to return.

The cocktails are quite expensive but a good cocktail is never cheap, wherever you go. The bar area is really nice, the staff were attentive, and the food was great.

I loved how spaced out the restaurant was. They have really thought about the design and layout instead of trying to cram in as many tables as possible.

A nice addition to Cheltenham.

Fantastic menu well executed. A welcome alternative to all the 'usual suspect' same same chains in the area. Not for the traditional pile-it-high-heap-of-chips-and-massive-pie addicts. But great if you appreciate taste and quality rather than quantity for the same price.

Really lovely restaurant - first time here and wasn't disappointed. It was fairly quiet, as a group of us from work went on a Tuesday evening, but atmosphere was still nice, the waiting staff were all wonderful (so friendly and attentive) and the food was really delicious. Portions were decent and tasty and the selection of drinks (both alcoholic and non) were wide ranging. Had a great evening, and would definitely recommend and will be visiting again.

We really liked the atmopshere and decor. The food was slightly dissapointing - small portions and not that tasty (we had the fish and chips with edamame).
