Popped in here during race week. Managed to get a seat and had some very tasty, but really expensive wine!

“Family catchup”
Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

A very busy Saturday, had to wait about about 10 minutes for a table. The service was very prompt, the food was good the price was good value for money. It's not a fine dining restaurant, but the venue is a fine experience for a quick lunch. Definitely go again.

“Wouldn't rush back”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Funnily enough I had never been to a slug and lettuce before, but after hearing good things about the chain's other restaurants, me and a friend decided to give the Cheltenham one a go for lunch on Saturday. The restaurant has a nice, stylish interior and we were greeted as soon as we walked though the door, despite it being very busy. The service at first was very quick and efficient. We both went for the steak sandwich and we both found the steak very chewy and gristly, not a good cut of meat. It also seemed a bit thick to have on a sandwich, perhaps a thinner sandwich steak would have been better. I would have given this feedback to the waitress if she had asked if everything was OK when she collected the plates, but she didn't, even though I had left 1/2 of my sandwich. Once we had been served our coffees at the end of the meal the service seemed to stop, and we spent what seemed like ages trying to get someones attention for the bill, even though the restaurant was now quiet. Overall I found the food a bit of a let down and the overall experience average to poor. I won't be rushing back, especially when Cheltenham has so many good places to eat.

“Noisy but nice!”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

We called in here recently on a swift trip to Cheltenham. It was very full as it was a Monday which is popular due to being "50% off" day. The food was hot, plentiful and adequate - my chicken pie was delicious but the chips were warm and a bit soggy. The most annoying thing though was that we sat near the kitchen door which for some reason banged and scraped every time it opened and closed - which it obviously did constantly. It was awful and needs sorting out. So tip - avoid kitchen side of restaurant if you have a choice (we didn't as it was so full). Overall though - good quick meal and we'll go again.
