    Took 20 minutes to get someone’s attention to get some drinks £6 for a tiny bottle of coke, which when the waitress came she knocked it over but no apology or replacement drink It was so noisy as there was a large party all talking over each other and we couldn’t hear each other All in all we were very disappointed

    We took my mother on her 91st birthday to the Queen's Hotel in Cheltenham for lunch and it was fantastic. The staff made it really special for us all, the service, food, ambience, drink etc was faultless. We will definitely return.

    We met up with family to celebrate a birthday. The service was excellent, shown to a table and asked about water and drinks. We ordered starters which came very quickly, complimentary rolls and butter were served just prior. The food was hot, presented nicely and was very tasty. Mains were ordered, we all enjoyed what we had and again the food was presented nicely. Finally deserts were ordered, we all had different, again all looked beautifully presented and we had no complaints. It's nice that the staff also come around and top up your wine and water glasses, while you get on with enjoying your meal. A very pleasant and enjoyable experience and we would definitely visit again

    Afternoon tea at The Queen's Hotel, Cheltenham is a very relaxed and special occasion. The staff are very helpful, but leave you to enjoy yourself and take your time. We had hot drinks and refills were no problem. The sandwiches were delicious as were the warm, fresh scones. Then we tackled the cakes which were amazing. We needed to take some away with us

    Overal it was excellent except for my main course. I chose fillet beef but the meat was so tough I I was unable to cut it felt llike & looked like rump but sure they’d never admit it they did accept it was inedible & deducted 20% from the bill.such a pity as the rest of the meal was first class for my 2 companions

    Service was very slow with no explanation of what was on the stand for the afternoon tea. We each had what amounted to one tiny sandwich cut into four triangles. The mini muffins were rock hard and inedible. At £30 per head I expected far better and £7.50 service was added to the final bill! The only good things were the scones that were fresh but barely enough jam and cream for two people and two scones each. Overall VERY disappointing. Wouldn’t go back, not worth the money.

    Waiter was wonderful. Kept our Prosecco topped up the whole time. 2 noisy tables in, quite big. I feel we could have been on a quieter area, but to be honest, it didn't spoil anything. Food was average at best. Sandwiches we cut in triangles like a children's birthday party. But the fillings were really good. Scones were plain. But nice. But really should have been fruit ones. Cakes were ok. Nothing great. But it was worth the £40 for the Prosecco alone. I'm a harsh critic. (work in hospitality) I would go back.

    I recently moved to Cheltenham and had some old friends coming to visit so thought that it would be a nice opportunity to have afternoon tea in this beautiful building which I have only admired from outside so far. However, I was disappointed with almost every aspect of our visit. In terms of tea, the bread wasn't very fresh, there were no fruit scones and the the cakes were quite ordinary. Re the decor, the dying foliage panels on the walls needed replacing and the tables need to be refinished or a tablecloth used, and the service was slow although friendly and polite. Overall, the experience was far too expensive considering the disappointing quality.

    We had the lunch set menu which was wonderful for some and a little less so for others .. I chose the 2 courses - main plus dessert both of my choices were outstanding! I ordered the Tempered haddock and fries with mint peas and tartare sauce ( gorgeous crisp fish and a very reasonable portion - utterly delicious) followed by the vanilla cheesecake with caramel sauce - soo scrumptious! Both of my friends ordered the seashell risotto which was a small portion with hardly any seafood to sample … tasty but sadly rather disappointing … I would return as the service was super and lovely ambiance but would advise friends to inform staff of my findings in hope the chef could adjust the portion size and a little more seafood if they were to order the risotto .

    Sunday lunch ~roast beef was delicious. Partner had salmon dish with risotto. Had to ask for more risotto as portion size small which the staff were accommodating. Desserts were disappointing need more of a variety such as apple tart and custard,, crème brûlée , chocolate fondant, crème caramel etc shame there are no tablecloths on the table as tables are marked and look shabby.
