The food was delicious, worth every pennie. The service was exceptional. The décor was traditional and cosy, yet with a modern flare. Have nothing but good things to say about this restaurant. We were a party of six girls and we all enjoyed!

my daughter & I visited here on a chilly January evening but our experience was far from chilly but heartwarming instead. We had to wait an hour for a table but it was well worth the wait. We partook of the table d'hote menu. We were treated to a complimentary small soup with fresh bread to start. We had a... More

What would be the best ever Christmas present? The chef at My Great Grandfather's cooking your Christmas dinner! If you can't have that then add festive cheer to your Christmas dinner by eating here. This is well worth the extra expense. No soggy sprouts here!

Probably the local best restaurant for a 'please all' evening. Slightly pricey but very enjoyable. Get what you pay for I suppose. Definitely recommend a meal there.

We have eaten here a couple of times in recent years and we are always delighted by our visits. I would advise booking in advance as times of arrival are staggered to offer personal service. The two key ingredients to this restaurant's success are the imagination of its menu and the quality of cooking that then arrives in front of... More

Yesterday we were staying in Tewkesbury and booked a table after walking past and reading the very inviting menu. We have eaten in Michelin star restaurants, appreciating good food cooked with thought and passion. We were not disappointed. Starting with a muse Bouche of sweet French onion soup accompanied by delicious home baked bread, three different choices of starters including... More

Lovely food and plenty of character made for a really nice restaurant for my husband and I. No complaints at all and would recommend this to anyone. One thing to note: Sunday lunch is always popular - and why wouldn't it - so I'd recommend you book in advance.

This restaurant is currently celebrating 10 years in business with a three course lunch for £27.00, which considering the quality is very good value. With friends our meal started with a muse bouche of celeriac soup, followed by deep fried brie served with hot strawberries. Main course was Chateaubriand to share in which the steak melted in your mouth. Dessert... More
