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.

Visited for Sunday lunch, choice of roasts is fairly limited but good quality & good value given portion size. Tasty & meat was very tender.Didn't give 5 stars as food could have been hotter, beef was lukewarm & roast potatoes were a little hard, not crispy! Overall was very nice lunch

We had a great night. Only thing that could be improved was if waiting staff asked us more frequently if we wanted Drinks because we probably would have bought more had we’d been offered.

We had a nice meal although it was certainly expensive for what it was. We arrived at 1230 and didn’t have our main courses until 1335 or so. The guys working were pleasant but clearly under the cosh. Only 2 staff downstairs and 2 in the kitchen as he said which meant we had a long wait. The staff that were there were great and friendly and the highlight was no doubt the sticky toffee sandwich. Overall I won’t be in a rush to return but not a bad meal just disappointing the people were left so short which meant the lunch took a long time which with kids can be stressful

A service charge of 15% can bring your bill up massively

The food was great - we felt very spoilt for choice as we were watching the chefs prepare the food. Service matched up to the food as did the atmosphere.

Booked The tavern for a works Christmas meal on 23rd December and we were not disappointed! The venue is fab, rustic, cosy and welcoming and the food was just amazing. The staff were friendly and attentive and whilst it was a very busy night the service was excellent. Starters couldn't fault them, the main course was seriously delicious and the portions were huge, dessert again, fab. Amazing value for money. Will definitely be visiting again can't recommend enough. Seriously worth a visit!

Excellent meal and service as usual thank you all! Did find the noise level made conversation difficult - I believe there are ways of damping down noise in smaller spaces without spoiling the buzz or the aesthetics
