    The Nook was one of our favorite places to go for a Sunday Roast until today. I had the chicken and on my plate was a small chicken leg with hardly any meat on it. I told the waiter and they brought me another chicken leg again with hardly any meat and it also had blood so obviously wasn’t cooked properly. The staff were apologetic but as they only offer a choice of two meats and I don’t like beef, I’m not sure I’ll go again.

    Service was pretty shabby. Pleasant staff but not nearly enough of them. Had to ask 3 times for our bread & was completely stale when it came, far too late. No carbs come with many of the main courses, so ridiculously expensive having to order additional ones. Lunch is far better there than dinner.

    Great ambiance, open plan, light airy and stylish. Full width windows overlooking Imperial gardens with outside balcony for Al fresco dining/ drinks in fine weather. Very smart cocktail bar with high stools and staff who know how to mix a good one. Interesting and diverse menu with excellent choice at reasonable prices considering the expensive and very smart surroundings. Great for lunch or evening dinner when you want to feel a little special ! Staff are efficient friendly and knowledgeable and there is a good selection of wines to choose from. Look out for their various functions and join mailing list for up dates on future features, guests and events.

    Overall it was fine, I just felt it lacked any real atmosphere & the food was average. Air conditioning made it feel a bit on the chilly side too. The staff were efficient & polite, but not very engaging. I can see that on a sunny day sat on the terrace it would be a better experience, but for me it was all a bit underwhelming.

    Absolutely perfect in every way! It was a birthday celebration and it could not have been better. We are so grateful to the staff for making it a special occasion. The food and drink second to none. What we noted in particular was they did not rush us, unlike many restaurants nowadays the food is served very quickly but we had time in between courses and it was really appreciated!

    Food very good. However the service was dreadfully poor. Not the busiest of nights. Clearly a staffing issue - insufficient numbers and those on duty barely interested. Maitre 'd absent on arrival, a wait of several minutes. Upon being seated made several requests to order. Order eventually taken for the three of us some 30 minutes later and the first course arrived 50 minutes after being seated! Had to attract the attention of the SOLE waiter for each course. As we eat often in similar "fine dining" restaurants in London, the provinces and Italy and France it was very easy to measure our experience last night. We stand by, therefore, of our rating of poor service.

    Second time we’ve visited for Sunday lunch. Didn’t think it could be any better than the first time but surprise, surprise…. YES. In our view it’s simply the best in Cheltenham. Everything from location, ambience,layout, service and of course the food quality. Ok, it’s a little more costly than other restaurants but honestly it’s so worth it . It was fully booked on the day so that tells you something.
