Splendid menu. Very accommodating server. She answered all questions. Home made elderflower cordial was delicious. 3 small plates shared to start. Absolutely delicious. Stunning actually. Partner had Chicken and I had 50 day aged beef. Both were absolutely delightful. We both enjoyed every mouthful. I sent my compliments to the chef. We would not hesitate to return. We both enjoyed every morsel of each course. Dessert was also very special. Thank you The Looking Glass. We will see you again please don’t change too much

Delicious starter plates. Unfortunately the mussels were not available and the turbot was overcooked and dry. The rump steak was tough.

Excellent service, excellent food and all at a reasonable price, what more could one want. Some of the nicest mussels I’ve had in a long time.
Thank you

We had two courses from the set Sunday lunch menu, which were very tasty. The roast potatoes could have been better, the skins were a bit chewy but apart from that it was a delicious meal, with good wine and a relaxed atmosphere. Looking forward to choosing something from the main menu when we next visit!

Interesting locally sourced menu. Loved the tapas as starters but would suggest an option to just buy one ( could pay slightly more eg £4.50 each) rather than the 3 for £12? Fantastic main courses and delicious puddings! Will definitely return 😊

Great little restaurant in an old butcher’s shop. Sensibly priced wine list. Delicate but flavoursome portions. Definitely worth a visit.

Wonderful meal in a fabulous little "local". The team who run this restaurant have put their heart and soul into the place and it really shows through in the food and the staff. Brilliant concept with the entrée tapa selection and really good value. This is the kind of local, small, non-chain place that needs supporting by all of Cheltenham.

What a lovely little restaurant just on the outskirts of Cheltenham in the classy Charlton Kings area of the town. Free parking is available directly across the road accessed through the entrance leading up to St Edwards School.

We went to the Looking Glass on a Tuesday evening and it was very quite. We were the only booking that evening although another couple took a table later in the evening. However, this did not affect us as we welcomed the quiet environment and full attention of the staff.

The Looking Glass prides itself in providing locally sourced food whenever possible. And it showed in the excellent quality of your dinners. The menu is not vast, but it has something for everyone. Two of particularly enjoyed the "Small Plates" where we had 5 very tasty Tapas type dishes. These I would describe as "luxury" Tapas. They were all gorgeous. Our fellow guests each had a Rump Steak and Fish Cakes between them. Both excellent as was the Malbec Wine from the wine list. The deserts were to "die for" with the Cheesecake being the most popular in our small group of four.

An excellent evening out. Great food and nice ambience. Great Service too.

Menu was varied and interesting and not run of the mill. The food was excellent. Service was friendly and helpful. The decor is lovely and ambience was good as the restaurant was not ‘echoey’.
Looking forward to eating here again soon.

A wonderful evening with friends. The food was delicious and the service appropriately attentive. We were a little disappointed that some of the options weren’t available but we will definitely be coming back.
