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.

Great meal - squid starter was delicious, chicken caesar salad was very filling and the cottage pie was lovely. Really great food. Shame they aren't still doing the eat out to help out, that would have been the icing on the cake. Thankfully did not have to use the one way system as well which looked bizarre. We will be back.

Lovely food. But we were disappointed by the service, we had to ask for everything (to take our order, drinks and bill) and also we aske asked for horse radish sauce which never appeared with our roasts and we never got it.

Great gastro pub - excellent food & service; very well managed in the face of a global pandemic - felt safe and hygienic.

Lovely as ever the only downside was the horseradish was very odd as they’d run out, and made some which wasn’t very appealing ... Tasted like butter. And I love horseradish ❤️ Apart from that spot on

A lovely meal and great service. Knocked off a star for limited veggie choices and wine prices. But what we had was delicious and would definitely come again.

We really enjoyed our meal. We had been recommended a lot of places in Cheltenham but failed to get into any. Went on line and found The Tavern and we had a delicious meal. The only thing we didn’t particularly like was the loud background music but that probably only betrays our age!

Hi I don't normally leave negative feedback but I was very disappointed with the lack of choice for Celiac diners. Not only hardly any choice but no information on the menu. As a Celiac I will not consider eating at the Tavern again unless more options are offered. On a positive note the service was really good.

Service was quite slow. When i thought i was waiting for the starter they then told me it was unavailable and i had to wait longer for it.
