“Excellent Brasserie style food and perfect service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Stayed the weekend in Cheltenham for a family get together before being relocated overseas so our meal at Brasserie Blanc was part celebration, part farewell.

The food was superb - one of the things I will truly miss about the UK. Really friendly bar and great cockjtails

Cheltenham itself was a joy to re-visit after a rather disappointing visit a few years back....thanks in part to B Blanc and also our choice of self catering house in Montpellier rather than a hotel.

“The only place we eat in Cheltenham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

I know there are plenty of great eateries in Cheltenham, but for service, food and the nearest thing you'll get to French Bistro style dinning, you simply can't beat Brasserie Blanc. We went for a birthday lunch and were clearly out to party! So lunch lasted a gentle 3+ hours. Service was attentive and we weren't hustled for our table.
We returned home full, and decidedly merry - having re-booked to go back in two weeks time with family members. As well as a great location and bistro style dinning - the food and wine are fair value. The set menu has sufficient choice for pretty well everyone without being overly expensive. The same can be said for the wine list.
We've been before, will happily go again and again and again!

“Super food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

We had a lovely evening at Brasserie Blanc last night. The atmosphere was great - busy and upbeat. The decor is really god. Its a nice place to be. The food was excellent as was the wine. I would have given it 5 stars except the service was very slow. It wasn't that they were busy - as we would have made allowances - but our waiter was talking to one of the waitresses and we had to chase him each time we ordered wine as it took ages to arrive. Other than that I thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

Wonderful restaurant with great food and excellent service. Make an effort to visit each time I've visited Cheltenham and always enjoyed both the restaurant and the bar.
