A real serendipity. Tucked away down a back street GL50 is definitely worth finding. The food was outstanding and more than equal to that served in many starred restaurants in my experience. Friendly attentive staff, a pleasant ambience and terrific value. Find it before they become victims of their own success.
Lovely restaurant. Great ambience & delightful staff. Food was delicious. Only quibble is that the portion of bread & ice cream could have been larger.
A new discovery and we will definitely be back. Our only quibble was the music, too loud for us, though they turned it down on request, and not what I think of as background music for dining. But this said, an excellent dining experience and a relatively new restaurant which merits support to develop.
Absolutely outstanding, how it doesn’t have a Michelin star I do not know. Everything about the place was amazing, food, and service. Cannot recommend enough, we will definitely be visiting again.
Great restaurant with very professional staff. We especially loved the scallop and pork belly starter and the carrot and coriander soup with pine nuts amuse bouche. Speed of service was perfect and presentation good.
The food was outstanding. The staff were very willing to accommodate and help. Had a fantastic experience for a birthday meal and would recommend to anyone.
Plenty of space between tables so we felt really safe. The food was delicious and they catered well for our party of four with one gluten free and one dairy free diner. Thank you!
Excellent from start to finish. Unusual and well made cocktails. Very attentive service. The food was incredible - great combinations and textures, and portions surprisingly generous. So glad to have this restaurant not too far from us.
Delicious food and very helpful staff.
The wine was lovely too!
Great evening good food and friendly staff
Our first visit - what a wonderful hidden gem for relaxed fine dining. Delicious food, beautifully presented and accompanied by friendly efficient service. We will be back. Very highly recommended.
We had a very nice diner for my wife's 50th birthday anniversary. The food was really good and original with lots of flavors and a lovely presentation. I would definitely recommend this place
The service from front of house was impeccable, we loved the personal touch of menu in an envelope and the atmosphere was relaxed. The chefs who brought food could have talked more about their dishes rather than just deliver it. Unfortunately the food didn't quite marry up to the price tag with some elements just not to our taste. The venison starter was the best dish.
A really, really good meal. Words are not enough to describe it - you really have to experience it yourself to understand the quality, care, taste and overall service to appreciate just how good it was.
It was relatively expensive but well worth it. One of my top 5 meals in my lifetime.
GL 50 provides top class cuisine along with friendly and timely service in a modest, clean and uncluttered, environment.. good value.
Can't fault the service, the food was outstanding then add the ambience and we had one of the best dining experiences ever. Only pity was we were visiting Cheltenham so can't go back on a regular basis. Good luck to Jonas and the team.
Fantastic food, some of the best food I have eaten.
Each course was distinguishable from the previous one. The flavours of each dish were amazing.
Thank you to the staff and the team for the exceptional service
Excellent meal with exceptional food, service and wine. It was for a special occasion and the added touches were greatly appreciated. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this restaurant highly.
Absolutely outstanding meal. Real attention to detail I every way even with menus being presented in personalised envelopes. Food was incredible cannot wait to come again and will be recommending to everyone.
I've missed taste like this for a long time now. No matter what you pick from the menu you wont be disappointed.
Great food, lovely ambiance, excellent staff. Highly recommended.
Service & food was very good. We had the tasting menu & my husband had the accompanying flight of drinks. We were both impressed right from the oysters we had to start right through to the cherry Bakewell dessert. It was will prepared & pleasantly presented. The service was attentive yet unobtrusive & relaxed. The restaurant was quiet which made conversation easier but there was a weird mix of rock to Sinatra playing in the background. The music seemed random & didn't really fit the style of the restaurant. It didn't detract from our experience- I just found it odd. My husband & I were already taking about going back to sample more of their menu before we'd even finished our meal & I look forward to returning.
Little touches and extras were lovely - menus in a hand written envelop and complemetary amazebouche.
Service was attentive but not intrusive
Food was excellent and interesting and the portion sizes were perfect
Enjoyable evening. Definitely the Cheltenham restaurant to visit for exceptional food, creatively prepared.
This was a very special meal for us as we were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and the 9 course taster menu accompanied by the wine flight option meant that we got to sample the best that GL50 had to offer. A discreet location with a very relaxing atmosphere, we will certainly be going back.
Superb food with a quality drinks list. Excellent and attentive service, without pretention.
First visit and was not disappointed, the food was exceptional, the service was first class. We will definitely be back.
We had an amazing meal here for our anniversary and my wife’s birthday. Both the service and food were excellent and would thoroughly recommend to others.
A lovely restaurant in Cheltenham. The menu was very inventive with just enough choice to know the produce was top quality and very fresh. Between the four of us we tasted most things and each of us enjoyed what we had from the vegetarian options, to the pork and the kedgeree. The sides were delicious - especially the truffle mash. If you are looking for a meal that is excellent quality and unusual menu then this is definitely a good choice
Fantastic from the minute we walked in to the minute we left, so friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere is relaxed and warm and the food was absolutely stunning, we loved everything we had. The truffle mash is next level!! Great place, great people and amazing food :-)
Stellar. Again. Thank you.
There is no better restaurant in Cheltenham (and yes, some of the others are very good). Different level of cuisine.
Vegetarian guests were blown away by the care and attention to non meat dishes (tasting menu that was tasty - for every mouthful!)
Amazing from the minute we arrived to the time we left. Certainly worth the wait for an available table to book and with very good reason. A must for any food lovers!
Stunning. Deserves a Michelin star. Best meal we have had in a very long time (have been twice this month - tasting menu and standard both spectacular).
Excellent food, great service and do not forget to try desert!!! Hidden gem
My son treated me to lunch for my birthday and it was fabulous, lovely atmosphere, we both felt comfortable, great service and fantastic food, we thoroughly enjoyed it, highly recommend.
It was all amazing. I am gluten free and there was plenty of options and alternatives made available.
We ate A La Carte from the small but interesting menu. We had a 'Special' main course which was a rib of beef to share, truly delicious and far too much for us to eat so we took the remainder home! The flavour of all of the food was spectacular. Service was attentive and friendly and we felt at home as soon as we entered the restaurant.
Brilliant location for a birthday meal. Interesting menu and enjoyable experience
This is a top class restaurant and to be highly recommended at star level.
