“Enjoyed the meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Staying at the Premier Inn in Cheltenham we decided with some trepidation, having read the reviews on here, to have dinner at TGIFridays. Expectations weren't high but we were very pleasantly surprised. We had two different starters and shared. The potato skins were good & the mushrooms were absolutely delicious. We both had the rib eye steak and although the beef was good quality our only slight criticism was that they were cooked medium, rather than the medium-rare we asked for. The chips were good & the salad with blue cheese dressing very tasty. We shared an excellent pudding.

Service was good but the kitchen a bit slow and drinks just a little slow. The waiter kept us informed, so no issue.

All in all we had a thoroughly enjoyable meal and evening and wish to redress the balance of comments.

Maybe they need to be more consistent.

“Great meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

Been a few times to this TGI and this latest was with friends as a birthday treat. Despite other reviews we had a great time food was the best I've had there ( I had rib eye) and simply can't fault it. Yes it's a bit cheesy and a bit dated but I still like it. Service is always slow but why rush if you want sat food go to McDonald's ! So if you want a fun night out you cant go far wrong here

“great food and friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Went on a Friday evening and had 2 courses. The bar and waiting staff were very friendly, and the service was good despite it being packed out. The cocktails were fab and our group ordered a variety of starters and mains, they were all really tasty and there was plenty of food on the plate too.
Only slight criticism was that the music got a bit loud as the evening went on. Would definitely go there again.

“Thank God Its F************ Awful!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

The good old days when TGIFs was the place to go and have reasonable food great service and a good atmosphere, now its the complete opposite. On this visit we were warned that that there was a problem with the heating but not that there'd be a problem with the service and the attitude!! t hate it in a restaurant when you have to get the staff attention to even get you a drink this took 15 mins and then another 10 mins for them to turn up..no offer of the free refils fr the kids and no warning that bottled drinks for them don't qualify. the food appeared 30-35 mins after wed had our order taken...but again this took five minutes to get all the dishes out to us.Just a really bad experience..bad training really poor magnified by how good it used to be!!! All of this on a MONDAY not a FRIDAY too so it wasn't that busy!! You need to up your game TGIFs you can go to Nandos and get in and out in 20 mins ..if you want ..it took you 20 mins to to get us a drink!!!
