Arrived at 9pm on a whim as we had been at an event nearby. This was our first visit back since the recent relaunch. We waited at the service desk for a few minutes until a waiter came over. We asked him if they had...More

We popped in on Saturday for a beer and it took an age to get served expensive beer. Only one person behind the bar. The place is very much focused on serving food. No real area for casual drinking

Found this little place just found the corner from my hotel. Nice friendly welcome and taken to a quite area to read my book and have dinner in peace away from other more social diners. The food was of a really good quality and the...More

I have been to the tavern many times. The food is great - especially the burgers and French dip. The last time the orders got mixed up - starters missed and mains really badly spaced apart.

We had lunch here. It is gastro style pub with attractive decor. Not very comfortable. It has low ceilings and we could barely hear each other, and the restaurant was not even full. We waited over 30 mins for our mains. The food was ok....More

This was a first visit and we arrived with high hopes. The welcome was a bit strange regarding the availability of our pre-booked table but not an issue. The starters were very nice and arrived in good time but we had to ask 3 times...More

We came here with another couple and our babies last Saturday for lunch. We were 20 mins late and weren't made to feel like we'd inconvenienced them. We also weren't rushed off the table either. Both guys that served us were really friendly and helpful....More

I used to love The Tavern, absolutely adore it. In fact I think I've written a review here before. Whilst I still enjoyed it when it went to the new burger menu it wasn't my favourite place to go anymore so when I had an...More

Very popular with Cheltenham young families due to the mac and cheese! The staff are really friendly there's just not enough of them. Beers on draught are not your usual Fosters type so it would be nice to be offered to taste. The food is...More

The Tavern started with a simple mission...to deliver delicious food at reasonable prices. Our mission remains the same. We bring you favourites from the old along with gobsmackingly delicious burgers, sinful shakes laced with bourbon and bespoke ice cream sundaes where you can pick the flavour, toppings and sauces. What's new is you can eat at any time from midday to midnight. Expect homemade, artisan burgers, made with local dry aged beef on Stokes Marsh Farm from Aberdeen Angus cross Hereford cows and a whole load of twists and classics like mac n cheese, sinful shakes and bespoke ice cream sundaes.
