We were staying at the big sleep hotel in Cheltenham for Cheltenham festival and asked them for a recommendation for Indian, they pointed us in the direction of this place and I'm so glad they did! Just outside the town centre but only a 5 minute walk in a gorgeous building this provides a lovely setting. We had starters and mains and the food was the best Indian I've tasted. Definately worth a visit and I'll be back!

We found this place as we were in Cheltenham following a day racing and decided that we could all eat a curry although to be fair this is a fusion with Thai food so there is as choice of both cuisines.

The Spice Lodge is set in a beautiful old house with tables in different rooms on two floors we were relatively early so had no problem getting a table and as expected the rooms on the ground floor filled up quickly.

Service is good and attentive and the food ordered was good quality and arrived promptly despite being busy. The four of shared a vegetarian and a meat platter both of which was delicious. Mains were excellent and my Meen Kadombo which is a southern Indian dish was done for me with chicken and was beautifully spicy just the way I prefer my curry.

Overall a nice experience pricing here is very good

Set in a wonderful building just outside of Cheltenham town centre with parking directly outside.
You walk in and the staff are there to open the door and greet you. We had booked and we seated immediately. Inside its very tastefully decorated, clean and elegant. All of the staff are very well dressed and super polite.
We had drinks then ordered popadoms, which came out within 5 minutes with onion, raitha and mango. I asked for lime pickle and they accommodated me.
The starter was sublime, the chicken cooked to perfection, moist and tasty. The main was even better, I had a chicken shashlik and it was the tastiest I have ever tasted. My partner had his usual chicken tikka but and nothing compared to this, our friend who is a seasoned indian food eater and a bit of a critique said it was epic - yes big words but he meant it.
The desserts were good too, we all had the mango sorbet with coconut and merangue, so tasty and a lovely palette cleanser after having so many big flavours. The bill was not extortionate, we expected to pay a lot of money for food and service of this quality, and we all cannot wait to return. An excellent evening was had by us all.
Thank you Spice Lodge.

This is such a pleasant experience for us that we try to visit at least once a week (except during race week!)
We always have a delightful time whether we choose daytime or evening. The staff are like family and we are always treated well. The food is delicious no matter what we choose to eat.
