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.

All round 5 Stars! Thoroughly enjoyed our evening bringing the 35under35 group to the Tavern for our Burger and Beer evening, nothing but high praise and compliments for the service and food we received

We love you. Great atmosphere, service is excellent (although you do need more wine glasses!), and the food never disappoints.

Menu seems more limited than before which is a shame as the food is very tasty. We missed the treacle tart. Starters limited. I know it’s a Sunday menu but there have definitely been changes.

We all enjoyed the food, it was fantastic, the atmosphere was nice and aesthetically pleasing. However the service was very slow. We were there 25 minutes before our order was taken, and there was only 1 other table of people there at the time. Other than the speed of service I would recommend the tavern

Food was pleasant but drinks service was slow. Staff smiling. I have also discovered that I have to get my £60.00 deposit back as it was not deducted from my bill and my Card has been charged.

Waited for an hour for our Sunday roast. My son then asked for some extra gravy which turned out to be the sauce for your sticky toffee pudding. Therefore my starving child had to wait a further 15 minutes for his food which had to be remade as he'd covered his yorkies in a syrup sauce. I would expect so much more considering the roast is the most expensive in town.

Expensive for what you get, we were a party of 8 and when we arrived there was just one other couple eating, service was slow and people that arrived after us were served before us. The quality of the food was was very good

Very slow service with food. Error with the bill when we had been offered a free round of drinks to apologise. Food and drink good, except one portion of chips cold.

Brunch was delicious. If they had milk alternatives for their hot drinks that would make my experience a lot better and would choose them over other places to go for brunch.
