Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited the Chelsea Brasserie on Monday 22 January and thoroughly enjoyed the food from the "lunch/early evening" menu. The menu is varied and the dishes were of high quality and well presented. We all enjoyed the ambience of the Brasserie which was only surpassed...by the welcome and professionalism provided by Sammy. A memorable experience and we look forward to returning in the very near future. Mike RMore

We had a lovely evening at The Chelsea Brasserie. The menu was great with the perfect amount of choice. We felt the food was good value and not dissimilar to the food and quality you’d get across the road at The Ivy. The staff were...very attentive and friendly. The wine list was just as you’d expect with a good variety of pricing. We left having had a great night - fab food, good service and not feeling too much out of pocket! Highly recommendMore

Visited this restaurant a year ago, and it was excellent then. Nothing has changed a year on. Food was delicious, as was the way it was presented. We did the special early evening deal, very good value and menu choice. Along with the friendly service...from Sam, I would definitely recommend you go to this restaurant if you're in Cheltenham for any reason.More

We booked for a group of 14 (including a baby and young child) for a birthday celebration. Our tables were arranged in a way that we were away from other guests and we weren’t bothering anyone else with our chattering. The menu itself wasn’t vast...but had enough choice for all tastes. The quality of the food was fantastic. I wish more restaurants made this choice to offer a smaller menu but cook bloody good food. The majority of us ordered from their set price menu which was great value for either the 2 or 3 course options. I always go out for a meal hoping to have 3 courses. All too often restaurants seem to think that stuffing you stupid as quickly as possible makes for a happy customer, not me. Here you get the perfect size portions to 1) enable you to enjoy all three courses and 2) to leave with a comfortably full belly. If I was to have one grumble it was that they didn’t have enough crème brûlée for all of us that wanted it, but isn’t that the sign of a good dessert? In any case I switched my choice to the sticky toffee pudding which was top notch! The service was equally good, attentive enough to be there when we wanted to order something but not lurking around making us feel under pressure to finish up. After the meal, everyone commented on how nice the whole gathering had been, how good the food and the venue were. We will definitely be going back.More

We had a great lunch to celebrate a 70th and a 75th birthday on a Saturday on January. Really good pre celebration planning involving Sammy and excellent food and service on the day. Ages ranged from 4 to 85 and everyone had a great time....Sensible prices on the lunch time set menu and the prosecco and wine was also great. All in all outstanding in every respect. Many thanks to Sammy and her team.More
