Breakfast was disgusting - greasy, and badly cooked. Horrible greasy smell and poor service. Plenty better places to get a decent breakfast in Cheltenham. Avoid.

Brilliant starter, main and desert, extremely tasty and great service. Will definitely be going back. Bemused by the few negative reviews, they are decorating but it looks fine and doesn't detract from the great food and service.

We have been coming here for a couple of years ( our daughter is at university in Cheltenham) and have always found it superb. Yes they are being re furbished, but I think it looks better with the new lights and colour scheme. We ordered...More

I would give 0/5 if it were possible. Unrecognisable from the pre-August ‘County Kitchen’ we used to love. PLEASE DON’T BOTHER. Bare restaurant area half painted, lots of clutter in every other corner (not in a suitable functioning condition IMO). Smeary dirty windows. Absolutely stank...More

Cannot understand why there are so many good reviews. You walk in and the smell of grease hits you. It was airless and now we all smell of stale chip fat. The room hadn’t been finished, there were semi-painted walls and ceiling. Bright lights overhead...More

Breakfast this morning was a massive disappointment. As a regular customer for the last few years, I was expecting the usual tasty breakfast that this place used to serve. Instead, what I got was a horrible, oily, badly cooked shambles. Everything was lukewarm and dripping...More
