Sadly the booking did not work as your confirmation email went into Spam and I did not find it until after the event. Would have appreciated a follow up phone call. We were found an indoor table but rather lacking in ambience. Disappointed as this was my wife's Birthday

I had to wait for 20 mins for order and a drink and wrong Gin was offered and my oysters was never served. Lunchtime was busy and less attentive on customers. Great for G&T drinks but need high quality service for restaurant diners.

Food was amazing. Only thing letting you down is the service just could have been better for the 10% that was added onto the bill and yet I still had to pour my own water and no recommendations were made on food/drink.

We were greeted and shown to our table in a perfect way, I’ve marked the service down by one star because we were left without giving our drink order for 20minutes. The service for the rest of the evening was also perfect.

We're big fans of 131 and its sister establishments, but yesterday's meal was a trifle frustrating. It was there last day before the new lock down so staff may have been distracted, but service was so patchy and staff so few we wondered whether some of them had self furloughed a day early. We also noticed that the garden grill menu was n longer available, and that several items on the evening menu weren't offered at lunchtime. This reduced options and increased prices. We'll be back, of course, when 131 reopens, and hope these deficiencies prove to be short term.

We had a beautiful lunch to celebrate my 30th birthday and it was better than I had even imagined! 131 has done an incredible job at creating a beautiful outdoor/in dining area and bar. Such a shame the doors had to close again due to the lockdown but I will be recommending to all my friends to book a table in the tents as soon as you reopen!

Lovely last lunch before lock down and a lovely gesture by the manager to have given us two glasses of champagne at the end of the meal for supporting them

Always brilliant, but I think the food has improved again, last night was a fab meal. The staff in the Restuarant and Bar were superb. Roll on the end of lockdown.

We really enjoyed our stay at 131. The staff were all so attentive and went above and beyond. The food was fantastic and it felt very safe in terms of covid. We can’t wait to be back ! Would 100% recommend.

A reasonable standard for most things, but service was , as it often is at 131 , very poor. It is not the quality of staff, they are all friendly and try hard, they are over worked. It is a great location though , and food and drink are of a good standard. It could be amazing with a little more effort and organisation.

This hotel is fabulous I can’t fault it, even the food was sensational and the best meal we had whilst we stayed in Cheltenham. The service is impeccable everyone was very attentive and always with a smile. I can’t wait to return - thank you

Our stay at No 131 was excellent. From the room, location, look of the hotel, staff, food and drink. Everything was perfect. It was my partners 50th birthday and a bottle of bubbles was waiting for us in the room when we arrived. A nice touch. Would recommend to everyone.

The ambience in the tented outside seating area is much better than inside, which I found dark and unwelcoming. Unfortunately the service wasn't very good - there was no one to greet us and once seated we had to ask to order drinks and bread. The food was lovely, though my roast beef was cold. The plates weren't hot enough, which could have retained the heat of the meat once it was plated up. I may have high standards after living in the Middle East where service is exemplary - its a shame that so many fine establishments fall down on this very important aspect of the dining experience.

It was great to be back, 131 had pulled out all the stops with their outside area and we were very well looked after. Well done to the team. The steaks this time were not quite up to the usual high quality but it didn't matter as we all really enjoyed ourselves. We have already booked again and really look forward to going back!

Food was absolutely delicious and couldn’t fault it. Service was below average and not what I would expect for a restaurant of this price. Our roast dinners took almost 30 mins to arrive and then were brought without gravy. The server asked if we wanted salt and pepper I said yes and it never arrived! Our meals were never checked so we didn't get a chance to ask for gravy and we had to flag down a blonde lady who i think was a manager. The blonde lady was much better than the tall brown haired man. I felt the 12.5% tip was over generous for the service received
