    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.

    Sunday lunch menu had various options for all courses. We chose Beef & Pork mains, amazing food & Yorkshire Pudding was huge!! Desserts to satisfy every diner. If you’ve not yet tried Sunday menu, book now. Well worth it. Thank you for making our first experience one to remember & return. 😁

    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.

    Great restaurant - well set out, tables not too close, excellent menu, service was great (pleasant, helpful, prompt without being too pushy) but best of all was the food, absolutely delicious, beautifully cooked, full of flavour, a real treat. Not cheap but couldn't be better for a special occasion or just to enjoy a top-class meal.

    Sadly, we had a really poor experience. After a nice cocktail to start in a lovely booth, things went downhill with the tasting menu. The food was just okay, and the wine flight servings were embarrassingly small. That could have been partially saved by the service, but that was inattentive and lacked any attempt to make it a special evening. For the prices being charged, I expected a lot more.
