We had an enjoyable sunday night visit to the Brasserie but a couple of aspects let the meal down and stopped this from being an excellent visit. Service was good throughout and it's a lovely venue, spotlessly clean and well looked after. Decent pint of 1664 too, which is rare as it's usually pretty poor. The starters we ordered were the charcuterie board which was good, if a little unimaginative and the Alsace bacon, poached egg and potato salad. This was excellent. A really good starter and the bacon was incredibly flavoursome. I wish i'd had it a bit bigger for a main course. The mains were the award winning burger and the duck with dauphinoise spuds. The burger was actually very good and the meat was seasoned well and very tasty. The burger is served pink though so be aware as they didn't warn us of this, although it isn't a big problem for me, i do think you should be asked how you like it cooked. Similarly with the duck which was basically overcooked and my wife wasn't asked how she would like it cooked so it was a little disappointing, as were the spuds which just felt a bit lack lustre. Desserts were nice although the meringue on the Mont Blanc was rock hard and had to be smashed to bits with a spoon! Not very elegant. Overall, despite a few quibbles, everything did taste good and we ha da good night. With a few tweaks here and there this could be another excellent restaurant in Cheltenham, rather than just 'good'.
