Lovely food with excellent service by all the staff. The decor and ambience really made you feel relaxed. It was our daughters 18th birthday and they made the effort to bring her a cake which was a lovely surprise.

Only two disappointing factors were the wine glasses were like short stemmed tumblers which I totally disliked and have never experienced before. And the wine by the glass was very very overpriced.

The food, as always, was excellent. The venue is second to none although we were sorry not to be under the dome. The waitress did not bring us the set menu and when we asked for it, she said it was only available from 3pm, we were there at 2pm and it is advertised from 1130-2815. I asked her to check and she then brought it but with no apology or explanation. The table was close to a pillar with a chair right in front of it and a small space behind. The waitress was squeezing behind the chair to take a short cut to the next table, each time disturbing me as she passed. I asked her not to do that but she continued to do so. When we left, there was a cookbook on display in the foyer which we asked about. The two girls knew nothing about it which was disappointing. It would be a better overall experience if some staff were better trained and deserving of the 12.5% gratuity.

Our experience was totally ruined by a couple on an adjacent table who argued for a full 90 minutes (the length of our visit); both the male and female used the “F” word in pretty much every single sentence. The restaurant management team did nothing to control their behaviour! Even a table of 4 men close by also complained about the experience we all endured!

Fabulous place especially as I remember it when it was a bank. They’ve kept all the interesting regency features and given it a Cheltenham twist. Good and service great.

A lovely brunch to celebrate a birthday. The staff were friendly and attentive but not overly. They even brought a choux bun and a candle to add to the celebrations which was a very thoughtful and much appreciated gesture. The food was delicious without fault.

Really good food and a beautiful setting. Let down by being asked to wait outside for 20 minutes after our booking time - no drink offered. Confusion over whether bar area was free or not.

Waitress spoke so quitely we couldn’t hear over the loud background noise (it was busy and not otherwise a problem). She didn’t seem to have a sound knowledge of the menu - didn’t counter ordering green beans when the salmon came on a bed of green beans. A suggestion would have stopped this.

Wine was taken from the table but had to be requested for top ups as sever not noticing glasses were empty.

Starter and desert were first class. Mains were good.

Perhaps only little issues but disappointing.
