Comparing this to last year when we also held our christmas meal here, this experience wasn't as good for the following reasons: 1. When we arrived the wine/prosecco wasn't on the table but it was the year before/ .2. The starters arrived before the wine/prosecco .3. One of our party had a rump steak which was very touch and gristly.... More

My wife & I called in for a meal after work. We both had burgers (I had the Ultimate Burger). and a couple of pints of 6X. Overall, the quality of the food and beer was of a high standard. Good sized portions of food that was presented well and looked appealing. The young man who served us at the... More

Hi Robert, Thanks for taking the time to leave us this fantastic review! I believe the young man to whom you are referring is Dan (who incidentally has now had his hair cut!) Our ale range changes from season to season and we've just changed over to our winter ales list, so come and try out a new favourite! 20p... More

Had a meal here with family but won't be making a return visit . The food was standard pub grub but I and the people I was with found the service to be poor . Our waitress was uninterested in giving us any kind of service and could hardly raise a smile . Not the most welcoming of service so... More

Steve W, Guest Relations Manager at The Blunsdon Arms, responded to this review

Hi "593billgirl", I'm sorry you found the service a little underwhelming, this isn't normally our attitude towards guests - we very much take pride in our service and want to make each guest through our doors feel welcome and want them to leave happy, and knowing that they will return. I hope you decide to give us another chance! Leisha More

I visited with a friend for a lunchtime meal from their set menu, at £6.49 for 2 courses. It was a Wednesday mid-afternoon and the pub was quiet but welcoming. I ordered Ham, Egg and Chips again and the mini baked Cheesecake which came with a pot of tea. Both were delicious. My friend ordered the Fish and Chips followed... More

We visited as a family of five, all adults, with one vegetarian. It was my birthday weekend and a treat at the end of it before my son and his girlfriend went back to Uni. To be positive first the young lady who served us was very knowledgeable on the vegetarian choices being one herself and my son was able... More

Hi Mandy P, Thanks for taking the time to leave us some feedback - this has been passed along to the chefs. I would just like to mention though that unfortunately our roasts do not come with stuffing, but this is clearly stated by not being in the roast menu description! However I'm glad Holly our house veggie was able... More

We visited the Blunsdon Arms this afternoon with our two boys aged 14 and 7. It was a spur of the moment visit on our return back to Cheltenham (our boys are skate boarders and the had worked up a hunger skating nearby). We found a pleasant table by the window and perused the menu. We each decided on the... More

We decided not to cook this evening, so made plans to go the Blunsdon Arms. Wasn't disappointed at all! 3 simple steps to great evening: 1. Order drinks, didn't have to wait very long for them. 2. Get a table, order food, Enjoy! The food didn't take long to cook and was very tasty indeed! 3. Order puddings, and relax... More
