Amazing food, knowledgeable and attentive staff and a great atmosphere. Would highly recommend.
We had the tasting menu on Valentines evening along with the suggested drinks flight. The food was wonderful, delicious with just the right proportions. The varied drinks were well selected to complement the food. The hostess Sophie and staff were welcoming and attentive and the chef Jonas came to chat at the end of the evening : a lovely end to a lovely meal. Thank you. We look forward to returning.
We visited GL50 for lunch today with friends, having been recommended. Everything was perfect from the warm welcome, an interesting wine list, through a lunch which was delicious, beautifully presented and excellent value. The chef/proprietor took the time to come and speak to each table and made an impression on us with his enthusiasm for good local produce and using every part of every ingredient. This restaurant deserves to thrive and we will certainly return.
It's a lovely idea of making good use of all produce.
We enjoyed a first visit to GL50 on Saturday evening. A warm welcome, delicious food (the sea trout was great) and lovely ambience all contributed to a thoroughly impressive experience. Chef Jonas taking time to chat to diners towards the end of the meal was a lovely touch and echoed the high standard of service throughout. Excellent!
We were blown away by how good the food was and were impressed that the food was served by the chefs who made it, so they were able to tell us about the dishes. The head chef was also very excited to talk more about how he came up with the menu items. There is clearly a lot of passion in this restaurant - will definitely be going again.
The menu was incredible, very interesting combinations. Great vibe in the restaurant, perfect for a date but also for dinner with friends. The owner and exec chef came out and thanked us for visiting the restaurant which was a nice touch.
Very imaginative use of ingredients. We were very impressed that the chefs used all of the produce where they could to reduce waste. We had the taster meal and every dish was delicious. Having the chef who prepared each dish deliver it to the table and explain how they'd prepared it added to a fabulous experience.
Delicious seasonal food presented beautifully, warm atmosphere and attentive staff. Lovely to meet the chef too. We would definitely return and not hesitate to recommend to others.
Fabulous night, brilliant food and drink and lovely service, we will definitely be back
Fantastic place, great food and friendly efficient service. Tucked down a small side street in the town center. This is one of the best meals I've had in a long time and reasonably priced. The 'Raw venison, turnips, caramelised whey' starter was amazing as was my Guineafowl main - lots of great flavours. The locally sourced sourdough bread and home made butter was a nice touch between courses. Didn't sample the wine list this time, but will do when we return.
This was our first time at GL50 and we will be returning very soon.
The food was excellent in taste and value. Compared to other eateries in Cheltenham this is one not to be missed.
It was a nice touch for Jonus to come and ask us about our meal.
See you soon.
Excellent and inventive cooking from a talented young chef. We will be returning
I didn't dare hope GL50 would be anything like as good as the much- missed White Spoon, but on the basis of a first visit, it's absolutely tremendous. Another brilliant chef at work. Highly recommended, we can't wait to go back.
Excellent food in flavour and presentation, a creative menu and perfect portion sizes; a warm welcome from front of house, and a visit from the chef whose enthusiasm for his art is palpable. A perfect casual fine-dining experience at a very reasonable price.
Absolutely amazing food and really friendly chilled out vibe! Loved all the dishes we had - each one had such a wonderful combination of flavours. Great to meet the chefs who created the dishes when they bring them to your table too.
My wife and I visited GL50 for lunch - our choice of restaurant was based partly on the reviews on tripadvisor and partly on our curiosity regarding the "minimal food waste" policy. Our experience was truly delightful and its one we plan to repeat as soon as we can. The welcome was warm and heartfelt, the food was excellent, the service was of the highest order and all at a reasonable price. I cannot recommend GL50 highly enough - get in early before word gets around.
Fabulously innovative food, probably the best restaurant meal we have had. Very attentive service. Highly recommended
We had a fabulous evening, the service was lovely - informal but informative and then the chef and his team presented some of the courses. We almost don’t want to tell anyone about it to keep it a hidden gem but it would be better to have more people there.
Excellent 3 course lunch cooked and presented to fine dining standards. Difficult to find fault - perhaps a little too quiet, although the choice of background music was appreciated. Certainly deserves to be a success.
Excellent menu, delicious food served by friendly and competent staff. A great new restaurant in Cheltenham.
We very much enjoyed our first trip to GL50. The food and the service were very good and it was a nice surprise to meet the Chef in person and his enthusiasm for the project is obvious. We will be back!
Opening week and will have to improve if it wants to succeed. Only five tables occupied well less than half the capacity. Our main order came out wrong ordered fish but what came was duck. They changed the dish but the refire meant my partner recived a lamb dish thar was not to a goid standard. The lamb was now tough. When the bill came that also showed the duck which wsd never ordered. Then ensued an arguement with the waitress who said it was a system issue. She had entered fish into the system but it had defaulted to duck. I suggested that systems don't change orders but staff do. Very poor service and argueing with a guest over an error not of their making needs to be focused on customer experience if they are to get the restarant full
Fabulous dining experience with a unique and individual styled menu offering beautifully presented and very tasty food. We loved it and will return. The staff were excellent with just the right amount of attentiveness.
Good first visit to a new restaurant in Cheltenham. Good friendly and attentive but not obtrusive service. Enjoyed the menu on offer which had a short but interesting choice of dishes available. Mains were not as hot as would have liked to be but its a minor niggle on an otherwise good first visit.
Definitely would give GL50 another try
Just everything one could want from a special dinner out. Food was beautiful and so tasty, owners and staff were charming and prices were reasonable for this quality of food.
