Wonderful food and courteous staff; especially during these odd times. Track and Trace was asked on arrival; tables were suitably placed.

We have been enjoying the food from Upton Firehouse for many months. Our favourite is pizza Wednesday, as we did not miss a Wednesday during lockdown, the takeaway pizzas were fantastic. We love that the pizza menu changes every week and be able to watch as they make the pizzas. Keep it going guys

We first stopped at the Upton Firehouse on 31st of July after visiting the Smokery. Since then we have returned at least 7 times (worth the trip from Cheltenham) and brought friends too and they also have returned. One because the staff are excellent, two the menus vary and the quality is high, three the coffee is brilliant and four respect for Covid-19 measures! Thank you Amelia!

Lovely food and atmosphere. Food is superb quality and taste which is reflected in the price and the addition of both the food and wine shop is great.

Absolutely brilliant. My children shared the full breakfast which was fabulous value for money and I had the brisket with the friend egg..it was delicious:) The freshly squeezed apple juice was a talking point with my kids, as they had never seen anything like it but they loved it. Great breakfast and I have told friends about it already : )

Whilst visiting The Cotswolds we booked this eatery on a whim & oh my word it’s awesome a must visit for sure. The setting is inside an enormous barn with bench seating for many with open plan kitchen where you can watch the chef’s cook their magic. The food is incredibly tasty especially the rack of ribs slaw & fries absolutely scrumptious & so so tender falling of the bone but trust me you don’t wanna share this dish however it’s a rather large portion for one so wear something comfortable to accommodate this feast. The brewery is definitely worth a visit it’s filled with a fabulous selection of wines beers spirits etc and the farm shop is just as good. It’s filled with all sorts of delights but the cheese’s and smoked meats section is just WoW so be prepared to spend silly amounts of £££ but truly worth it. - Try out this absolutely awesome delicious eatery you will not be disappointed 👍

Great food, have eaten here before when it was an all you can eat buffet. Due to current restrictions this was not possible; the food however was of the normal high standard and the quantity on the platter left all the party full.

We had seen a sign for Upton on main road, after looking it up we made sure to pass through on way back from Cotswolds trip. We will be back, great space, lovely service and tasty food. The farm store and Big Grin distillery make it work multiple trips.

Great food, brilliant fun relaxed atmosphere. Very attentive service. Great value for money. Our third visit, the first since they’ve re-opened. They have all of the Covid-19 restrictions in place and everything is well organised. We will definitely return. Well done (and thank you) to the team.

Great place . Good variety of food . The only negative is that the service is very slow we had to wait for 15 mins then had to physically go and get a waitress to get a drink . The service for the food was unfortunately no better luckily we weren’t too hungry or in a rush .

We arrived at 2pm, after 2:30 we asked if we could order our food, further wait 5/10mins before order was taken. Other diners who arrived after us were on their second course before our order was taken, tried desperately to get their attention but ignored. Waited further 30mins for food which was placed and we were told by the waitress she would get the cutlery, I advised the waitress we were missing a side. No cutlery and waitress went to serve other diners. After few mins of wait I approached the barman for cutlery and this was provided shortly after. Took the waitress 3 attempts to bring the condiments we had requested. Took further 5mins for missing side to be brought after reminding waitress. At end of meal we asked for bill which was wrong. We were not asked if we wanted to order more drinks at any point. We had planned to have desserts but decided we just wanted to leave. We also had planned to visit again but will not be doing so now. This is a great venue with good food but appalling service. The Chefs were also experiencing difficulties with the service staff attending to service. The serving staff were not happy, helpful or apologetic for the delays or mistakes. Not a comfortable experience.

We have been looking forward to eating here for a long time. Unfortunately I think the chef was not having a good day and the service was slow and inattentive. Table booked for 1.30, drinks came but missing 1, ordered main and asked for olives while we were waiting, asked 3 times for them, again had to ask to chase up mains as it was now 2.30, I shared the large meat platter which was tasty but only just warm, my daughter ordered the chicken & chips only to find the chicken not cooked in the middle. One waitress very apologetic offered to have another cooked but as everything had taken so long We declined. The young man I paid also apologised and took off a discount. I’ve managed in hospitality and all of the above could of been so easily avoided. It would of been helpful if we knew who was in charge and there was someone showing direction to the waitresses. Would we come back or recommend to others that is very unlikely given our experience.

Great little place for a casual lunch or dinner. Good food and service. Can’t really remark on atmosphere as it was very quiet at the time we visited (perhaps due to C19). Would recommend for informal dining
