    We absolutely loved the food and the salads were very delicious and filling. One of the table had the beef hotpot whic he was a bit on the smaller side but of very good quality and came with fries so it was enough. I don’t think their customer service is that good, in that we had to go and find the waitresses at times when when we needed more water or we needed to see the dessert menus. They also weren’t that cheerful or smiley but general impression of the place cosy, intimate dining with good quality food.

    Booked this restaurant via Open Table given how busy Cheltenham can be on a race day so close to Christmas. Not disappointed at all! Restaurant is downstairs from the little cafe and the food is terrific, the staff were lovely and it was quiet and friendly. Would definitely return if in the area

    We had a lovely meal - all dishes were great, however I was disappointed that the menu costs on the website apparently hadn't been updated meaning that every meal was £3-5 more than expected which when across a group meant the whole evening was more expensive than expected or budgeted for. I did ask a member of staff about it and they said they would get it updated, but this of course didn't change the situation for us.

    Regular haunt for us, outside seating area is magical. Menu and drinks always enticing. The only downside on this occasion was my main meal. The lasagne was very salty and the side salad was drenched in dressing. My partner was happy with his pizza and our pudding was ok. We will return of of course as it’s such an atmospheric place.

    A lovely old building housing an excellent restaurant. Unpretentious and reasonably priced, but the food was delicious and the service efficient and friendly. They seem to have all the bases covered with a selection of pizzas and pasta dishes as well as a mains section of Anglo- European comfort food. I can’t think of anything bad to comment on. We would happily go back.

    The mussels starter was divine. I had to ask for more bread so I could mop up the sauce (chose the version without cream). ... and the beef hot pot and fries ... caramba! Who'd have thought it? I'd never order something as plain-sounding as hot pot but so glad I did.

    Just a great place to stop if you want anything from a light lunch to a hearty meal. Baguettes available to-go, and their pizzas are epic! I also really enjoy sharing one of their charcuterie boards with a glass of wine! Great value, great food, great service.

    We only had some nuts and humus to eat. After 90 minutes they still hadn’t brought out our main courses, were unapologetic and said they were very busy. Eventually the chef came out and said there had been a problem. We had to go, so didn’t have time to eat.
