This place is the only reason I would come back to Tewkesbury. Every last morsel of food on each plate was delicious.

Visited last weekend for my birthday and was taken back by just how exceptional the food was with service to match! The set menu was excellent making our dinner at My Great Grandfather’s the highlight of the weekend. Will definitely be back again.

A small intimate venue with a really friendly welcome. We had the 3 course menu, which was a perfect amount. The service was lovely and friendly, a nice personal feel. A little gem to find in Tewkesbury.
