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.
Such a welcoming pub with attentive service
Very welcoming & friendly service; on arrival the guy front of house was very responsive to our request to change our table,and did so without any fuss. We were really impressed with the service and the Sunday lunch was delicious.
We took a group of friends to The Tavern for dinner. One member of our party ordered the chicken burger which unfortunately appeared to be undercooked. The waiter spoke to chef and both stated it was meant to look like that as it was from near a joint and so it was not replaced. In actual fact whether the chicken was cooked or not was beyond the point, my friend did not feel comfortable eating it so his meal was ruined and £13 wasted. Not to mention the automatic 12.5% service charge on the bill which adds insult to injury. In Cheltenham where there are so many possible eateries, I would recommend finding somewhere else where customer satisfaction actually matters.
Great local eatery, consistently good food
Great food and service
Food was excellent, although some choices were unavailable. The restaurant was busy, the service was good. We had a very enjoyable evening.
Spent 5 hours in here on Saturday night due to a band starting at 10 which we hadn't known about when we booked our meal for 7. Had lovely food, wine and cocktails. Music was good too.
The food was great, and I love the atmosphere. The service was okay, but the waiter never did ask us if we wanted any sauces, etc, which would have been appreciated.
The food is not good everything seemed to of been re-heated in particular the mac n cheese. The quality of the food also isn't great - the chicken wings were very stringy and would not recommend this place at all
The service was as usual extremely friendly and professional. The kids loved their burgers and the chicken wings are always a winner. Live Music was very pleasant, not too loud but still very present. We will be back.
Great ambience and service - ideally a few more veggie/vegan options would be preferable!
Amazing food, great staff and second to none atmosphere, great night had by all!
Nice menu again, salt & pepper squid a little bland but not bad. The Tavern slaw was tasty, little oily, probably personal taste. My husband loved loved his cheese burger.
Great place. Lovely warm atmosphere and stylish decor. Good drinks menu. Enjoyed the food although we had to wait a while-that's Saturday night for you! The band upstairs that was on from about 10pm whilst great musicians it was too loud for those still dining downstairs.
excellent food good friendly service good music and a great atmosphere
Really good lunch, great service.
Had to attract the attention of waiting staff quite a few times. Otherwise food and drink was good.
Really great night. Tasty steak.
Lovely food, busy, good atmosphere even for early dinner at 6 o’clock. Attentive and friendly staff.
Had a great meal and the food came quick with great service! The fried chicken burger was perfectly fried!
