About The Tavern

Cheltenham’s friendly neighbourhood restaurant and bar. A favourite of locals, The Tavern started with a simple mission…to deliver delicious food at reasonable prices. Our mission remains the same.

Tuck in and experience locally sourced, British produce that’s carefully crafted into punchy and full flavoured dishes. Savour your way through our taverna style menu from Tavern Classics, filling Hereford Beef Short Rib and of course finishing with some utterly sinful puddings.

Our talented bartenders use fantastic local produce to create some of the finest cocktails in Cheltenham. Muddling and mixing the perfect ingredients to emulate an old favourite or a new creation. Their experience, knowledge and awards for service make them a bar team to be reckoned with.

Our table was in an unfortunate position near the waiters station & bin, it was also at the top of the exit stairs so cold as well. The restaurant wasn’t full & I did ask to change our table but was told a large group was expected. No one arrived. This changed our whole experience I’m sad to say & could have been avoided

Absolutely delicious Sunday roast! Tasty Dunkertons cider (having the mulled one available in December would be nice!) Service was fast and friendly. Restaurant was clean and had a great atmosphere. Such a shame it has to be closed for a month now!

I was quite disappointed with my roast beef Sunday lunch.. beef wasn’t very tasty, green veg was a little undercooked and cauliflower dish was warm in outside but lukewarm in middle. My fellow 3 diners had the burgers which they said were great, wish I had chosen them.

The food was wonderful - really delicious, we did feel it was slightly expensive, but it was a special occasion so worth it. The staff however put a real dampener on the evening - it was like we were too much trouble to bother with. They were aloof, rather arrogant and it took 3 attempts to actually get some drinks ordered. They just looked bored and that affected our mood and experience.

Ate on October 31 and had the Halloween menu (Mexican). Really delicious and great value too - who knew such a good margarita could be found in Cheltenham!

Great food and service as always. A little quite for brunch on Saturday but probably to be expected. Everything else was excellent and will be back again.

I have marked food and drink & value for money down because the portion size of the cauliflower steak and dhal curry was tiny, more of a starter portion and I supplemented my meal with some food from my child’s dinner which was plentiful (they had the burger). If we were in a different situation I would have highlighted this at the time but we were there for a birthday celebration. Also considering there were plenty of staff on the night it took ages for our food order to be taken (drinks order was prompt) so we ended up leaving our table to come and ask for someone to serve us. Otherwise remainder of food and desserts was good.

Soufflé was awesome, ribs were very good. I would give the chili fries a miss next time.

Had to wait over an hour for food. And waiter seemed to be more interested in providing good service to another party of customers of which he seemed to have acquaintance with.
