We hadn't planned to eat here, but were fortunately able to get a table on request, and were very impressed. The soup pre-starter was accompanied by the most delicious apricot and cheese bread. Mussels were attractively served with red sorrel and a white wine sauce. The main course of beef in a robust peppery sauce was served with a twice-baked... More

After visiting Tewkesbury quite a few times, this was actually the first time we went for dinner there. We chose this restaurant due to its excellent reviews and we were certainly not disappointed: Very friendly and helpful staff, a cosy and comfortable interior, and then the FOOD! High quality, fresh ingredients, and cooked to perfection. The portions were so generous... More

Another fantastic steak, and nice to see you have broadened the range of steaks on offer to include the world famous Kobe. Well done, excellent service as always, excellent food cannot fault My Great Grandfathers.

The food at My Great Grandfathers was absolutely delicious. I had the broccoli soup with the leg of lamb and it was incredible. The lamb meat fell off the bone and had a delicious sauce to accompany it. I also had the Baileys Ice Cream with Baileys Creme Brûlée and the ice cream was one of the best I've ever... More

We visited on my husbands birthday and boy, we were not disappointed. Loved the menu, small but still difficult choice as it all sounded amazing. Freshly baked olive and Parmesan bread, an amuse bouch of leek and potato soup, both delicious, and we knew we in for a treat. I had the pate followed by the pork belly, my husband... More

We decided to book a table at this restaurant as we were staying at the local Hilton for the weekend, which is a very short taxi ride away. We generally prefer eating out when staying at hotels, as hotel food can be a bit hit and miss...sure you know what I mean! I checked the local reviews and MGG has... More

Lovely restaurant with very friendly helpful staff. It was a birthday meal for my husband so I pre-ordered a bottle of Champagne which was chilled and ready for us on arrival. The food was amazing and reasonably priced. Would definitely return if ever in the area.

We had a lovely meal in this restaurant sitting with a window view of Tewkesbury. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very warm and inviting and the staff very helpful. They had some brilliant background music which complimented the restaurant well. The food was delicious / there were 4 of us dining and we all enjoyed our food which came... More

This was a real find. The food here would be at home in much showier surroundings, albeit they would then give smaller portions, and charge higher prices. Service was friendly and efficient, and being in their upstairs room meant it was relatively quiet. Everything tasted really nice and was well matched on the plate. I would eat there again, and...
