I had read the reviews and decided to pop in a give the place a try. It's a bit off the beaten track, but well worth the short walk from the High Street. We were just going to have a coffee & cake, but were tempted by the eggs benedict, so had one to share with our coffee. Without having... More

An incredible homemade burger and coleslaw, probably the best slaw I have eaten. And the top rate food is matched by great service. I am in Cheltenham for a weekend. The lovely owner of star bistro recommended some great for places to see. The fact that he employs people who would otherwise struggle to get a job means you leave... More

The full English breakfast was amazing with their black pud being one of the tastiest I've ever tried. Service was fab with a nice relaxing ambience. Wish I'd found this place sooner!!

Having been blown away by the Star Bistro at Ullenwood I was determined to try their place on Pepper Crescent. I had a simple salad, one of their delicious gluten and dairy free desserts and some of the best coffee I have tasted in ages. Everything was fresh, tasty and accompanied by great service. What a superb addition to Cheltenham's... More

this was my first visit to Cheltenham. I met a friend for lunch and we chose the Star Bistro based on TripAdvisor reviews. We were not disappointed as the food was excellent value, wholesome and delicious. The staff were attentive and we really enjoyed our visit.

Went for breakfast and had the eggs benedict. Am a bit of a connoisseur of these and this was a really good one, nice touch was the finely chopped chives on top. Good coffee and pleasant service. The decor is well done, and the furniture very modern, the room is light and airey though below ground level.

Congratulations to Rob Rees and his team who operate Star Bistro at 12 Royal Crescent. This was my first visit to this exceptional little bistro and it will not be my last. The coffee was first class - proper coffee and not an excuse for coffee. Then we had eggs Benedict for lunch. Absolutely delicious. The eggs were poached perfectly,... More
