There was a good choice of dishes. Our starters were preceded by a (free) amuse bouche of tasty tomato soup and lovely homemade bread. Starters and main courses were great, with well... More

Pre-booked from reading reviews on TripAdvisor in order to celebrate my father in laws 80th birthday. Greeted by lovely staff who were so helpful considering that we had a 4 week old baby in our party. The menu and subsequently the meals were delicious. Cooked to perfection using great quality produce. I highly recommend & I hope to visit again... More

We were staying in Teweskbury for a couple of nights, on our second we chose My Great Grandfather. I called to reserve a table, unfortunately, no one was there to answer, I left a message and within the hour I recieved a text message with my reservation. When we arrived, the reception was friendly and welcoming. The food was outstanding.... More

I took a chance, booking this for a family lunch-time get together just before Christmas. I needn't have worried. From the first phone call the lovely Shiho made me feel confident that everything would be perfect. It was! As we were a party of nine they opened at lunchtime especially for us. The food was wonderful, including the six year... More

Highly recommended . Shiho is an excellent hostess and as a party of four we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and cuisine and would make this place our first port of call if we were ever in the area again.

I treated my wife to a birthday meal at my great grandfathers on sat 17th of December. The moment we walked in we were greeted by friendly staff offering to take our jackets. Drinks were served swiftly and our orders taken in good time. We were served a beautiful amuse-bouche with freshly baked warm bread. My starter followed shortly after... More
