    Amazing restaurant! Lovely layout of tables, spacing and comfy areas. And lovely roof top views. Nice note of added piano player too. Lovely welcoming staff. Menu choices very good and pricing too. Cannot fault the food at all, so so yummy. Best food I’ve had in a long while. First class place! Will definitely recommend to others and visit again.

    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.

    We went for a Sunday roast and it was delicious. None of us had starters because nothing appealed. Service is a bit slow but the ambience is great. We could have sat there all day!

    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.

    Great food, and the service was attentive. Slight delay in the serving of the additional vegetables with the main course but in the overall evening experience this was a minor thing. Frankly it's not a bargain meal but that's not it's selling point nor why you should go to the Nook in the first place. You get what you pay for, an excellent meal, in a superb environment with attentive service, and the cocktails were fantastic.

    Waiter apologised that the afternoon tea may be delayed after an incident in the building that day. It would have been nice to have been told what the cakes were. No one asked after serving whether everything was ok and it took a while to flag someone down for the bill at the end.

    Such a fabulous venue deserves fabulous food and the talented chef at the Nook does not disappoint. We enjoyed delicious scallops and tender beef with vegetables that qualified for a starring role. Service was impeccable throughout. As a place to celebrate there is no equal in Cheltenham.

    It started so well, as we were wonderfully welcomed and the service at the table was brilliant. Our starters were superb, but unfortunately I had a horrible hugely fatty piece of venison which I could barely eat any of and this was £30! I was very disappointed as it ruined my main course.

    From the moment of booking the service was excellent. I received a call to arrange the perfect table for our dinner. The service on the evening was faultless, the food was delicious and beautifully presented and the atmosphere was perfect with the pianist. The price was very fair given the experience. Such a great place for a special occasion.

    Enjoyed our night out. Venison wasn't as good as last time but still delicious. Only thing that would have made it better was if there were more diners or slightly warmer. Cocktails were amazing as always and our servers were so friendly and helpful. Can't wait to come back again.
