The Daffodil Ratings and Reviews
Booked for my boyfriends Birthday and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. We were early for our booking so had a few drinks in the bar upstairs before dinner. I booked on a night when they had live music which really added something extra to the night. There was plenty on the menu, although as a vegetarian the choice was a little more limited. Out of the 2 mains, I was actually spoilt for choice as they both looked good, in the end, I settled for Gnocchi with pesto and feta. My meat eating boyfriend didn't know where to begin and settled on the Pork Belly...he promptly licked the plate clean. We both had a very special evening and I would definitely return again in the future to celebrate another special occasion.
Began with a cocktail in the bar upstairs. Even if you aren’t having any food, it’s worth the cocktails. They were delicious! As were the mixed olives that we had with the cocktails. The service was brilliant as was the food. The overall atmosphere was great.
I booked the daffodil because I was proposing to my girlfriend on arrival the front of House staff were very nice and showed us to are table very nice as well we had drinks and ordered are food then I got down on one knee and popped the question she said yes I hadn’t let the staff no but they were fast to realise this and brought us over some free champagne to congratulate us which was a lovely thing to do then are main meal came which was outstanding on to dessert as the waitress Britt it out she also came with a lovely congratulations board and sparklers which made are night so special I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff for a great and memorable evening so this restaurant comes highly recommended by us
The restaurant is amazing , a converted cinema in an Art Deco style , the all staff are friendly and attentive , the bar staff, and waitering staff are knowledgeable about their role and offer very good advice. The food is amazing , whilst on paper it doesn't look cheap it's worth the bit extra for the quality
Went to the Daffodil for lunch on 06/10. There was some work taking place which caused a disruption and disturbed our celebrations. It was the day before my sisters wedding. A polite word with the manager and the disruption went away and the manager went above and beyond with very generous compensation. We regularly go to the Daffodil for special meals/occasions and the food is always fantastic and the service excellent. This experience just emphasises that the Daffodil is a people venue and prides the experience of their clients over profits. Will definitely be returning.
As always, the lunch was delicious and the squash and blue cheese salad starter had a unusual and distinctive taste.
Service was excellent and the staff were their usual polite & friendly selfs.
Love the Daffodil, my most favourite place to dine and chill out in Cheltenham, especially on the Jazz nights.
We (group of 8) had the best time here for a friend's birthday, afternoon tea was one of the best I've had. Service was second to none, nothing was too much trouble from taking numerous group photos, attending to a couple of special requests and calling us a taxi.
The food was amazing with a great selection of fresh sandwiches and sweet treats, we moved upstairs for a cocktail afterwards which was also fantastic.
The building and decor is what makes this experience different and special, it is absolutely stunning and perfect for a special occasion.
The one small negative point we had was that lovely as it was to have a live jazz band playing, the level of the music was just a little too loud to make conversation comfortable, it would have been more pleasant as background atmosphere.
Overall a brilliant afternoon with some lovely memories made.
If I'm ever lucky enough to find myself in Cheltenham again I would go back to The Daffodil in a heartbeat. We unknowingly booked for the Jazz night which was brilliant, and the food was just incredible. I would walk back for the Double Gloucester Souffle! The staff were also attentive without being overbearing - the perfect balance.
Great dining experience. Food was delicious. Service was excellent and made us feel like VIPs. Great ambience with beautiful Art Deco styling. Didn't know it but Monday is Jazz night. Music was excellent and added nicely to the overall atmosphere. Was very enjoyable and a great night out.
The food was excellent and my party confirmed that it was the best dining experience they had had for years. The service was friendly and attentive but not intrusive and any additional request was met with a smile and actions immediately. We will be going back and I would recommend the Daffodil to anyone.
We dined at The Daffodil this week to celebrate our friend's 30th.
Our dining experience was second to none. The team were very professional, lead by Elliott, the fantastic maitre d .
The food was delicious and the ambience, stylish, elegant but relaxed.
Well done and Thank You Daffodil gang. We will be back.
