Visited for breakfast, hadn't realised that the ownership had transferred to the star college. Food was excellent, and well priced - £8.20 for a full English breakfast.

Had lunch here and was totally unimpressed. I used to LOVE this place but haven't been for about 18 months. It has completely lost it's sparkle. No atmosphere, slow service, just ok food.

This is a real gem of a find, tucked amongst the offices of Royal Crescent, just behind the main promenade so easy to get to. I regularly order goat's cheese salad but this was the best I have ever tasted -coming with fresh warm figs, bacon and nut garnish and beautifully presented.We rounded off with coffee and a heavenly chocolate...

This was the first time we have visited since the new ownership, we were in a group of four and we're delighted with the choice on offer with variety ranging from the usual fare of soups and sandwiches to more of a full meal such as burgers and risotto. The food was excellent, and would recommend it as a pleasant... More

This used to be my favourite lunch place in Cheltenham, but it has lost its inspiration. The menu has shrunk, and what is left has not changed for weeks. The dish we chose had no delicious dressing on the salad and the most miserably small portion of butter to go with the toast. The coffee is excellent, but the cooking... More

I was really looking forward to visiting as I'd heard & read good things. The food was very tasty, the coffee was fairly nice, the cafe was clean and looked good but the service was quite flat. Our order had to be checked a couple of times and it felt as if our waiter was brand new. I don't mind... More

My boyfriend and I enjoyed an excellent lunch at the Star Bistro: a wonderful combination of flavours and friendly service. A good range of tempting options even for me on a gluten free diet! We were so glad to stumble upon it.

Super breakfast in the courtyard. Perfect pouched eggs and gluten free toast. Hubby, had the full English which looked amazing, no greasy residue and delicious locally sourced produce. The service was really friendly and efficient. Everything is cooked to order too. Great kick start before some retail therapy.
