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.

We were very regular customers here but won't now be returning. Poor quality food, poor service and no atmosphere because they have no customers. Dreadful. We are so disappointed.

A gem below stairs, light bright modern. Outside courtyard. Food excellent and reasonably priced. Ideal for snacks or lunch and very central.

A quick stop for lunch as this little cafe is round the corner from work. The food is generally very good. The broccoli and stilton soup was beautiful and the fresh bread and meats are delightful. The wait is sometimes a little long however. This can become quite annoying at lunch time with a strict timescale to hit. I take... More
