An annual Treat

A group of friends and I have been going to Tewkesbury to attend the medieval festival for many years and visiting this restaurant has become an annual tradition. Not once have we eaten here and been disappointed. The food is excellent with some nice twists (mussels with lavender anyone?!). Even... read more

Our 3rd visit to this lovely restaurant and again we were not disappointed. Food and service were excellent. Their set menu never disappoints especially the crime brûlée. Staff were very friendly and a surprise birthday treat at the end of the meal.

We were told about this place and thought it would be good for our joint family birthday meal. Looking at the website it has good food with a Japanese influence and so our hopes and expectations were high. There are pay and display car parks round the corner so parking not an issue. The place is on the High Street... More

An excellent recommendation from a friend for my birthday meal. No parking but car parks nearby. Lovely appearance from outside - and better inside. Very friendly, efficient and professional service throughout. The table d'hote menu was sufficiently inviting for us to choose from there. We had a delightful (and complimentary) 'amuse bouche' as an introduction. Starters were excellent. We shared... More

I play in a big band in Norway and we went to England to play a concert at the Upton Jazz Festival. We also booked our 25th anniversary dinner at My Great Grandfathers in Tewkesbury. That turned out to be a good choice, as the food was good and nicely presented and the service efficient. We had a chambre separe,... More

Amazing service from the start to finish! Lovely couple who run the restaurant. Hubby cooks and the wife is front of house. Fabulous food which was fresh, creative and great portion sizes (so often you get quantity and no quality!!) Delicious home-made bread (recipe from Great-Grandfather!!) and amuse-bouche!!! Highly highly recommend and would go back again rather than look elsewhere... More

We visited My Great Grandfathers for my husbands birthday and had a fabulous meal. There was a lovely atmosphere with a surprisingly busy restaurant for a Monday evening. The food was absolutely lovely and huge portion sizes (definitely go hungry!) with a delicious range of options perfect for us as my husband is a fussy eater. The lady who looked... More

This was food and service you would expect in serious fine dining. When ordering chateaubriand rare, there is always a tinge of anticipation, however, The food was superlative, each course, first to last, never failed to delight. Service was so friendly, patient. This place will go a long way up the ladder of fine dining. Can not Recommend this place... More

Couldn't fault this place if I tried. We came for lunch on a Saturday for my fathers birthday and we certainly weren't disappointed. We were the only guests there and I have the feeling they opened for us. Service was superb even a small bottle of prosecco given to my father as a birthday gift. The food was superb (have... More

Visited for our wedding anniversary while staying in Tewkesbury. Had the set price meal. The food and service were excellent with a good choice but drinks were a bit expensive. I would recommend to anyone wanting a special meal.
