Eating Out in Cheltenham
Eating out in Cheltenham is an experienced not to be missed… where do we start!
Known as the food capital of the Cotswolds, you can get everything from a pastry and a coffee to a Michelin starred restaurant!
In fact, Cheltenham is so well known for its range of gastronomic delights, it has been featured in prestige publications such as the Conde Nast Traveller, The Guardian, who did a great feature a few years back on budget restaurants, and The Good Food Guide.
Independent restaurants spring up on every street, using fresh locally sourced ingredients, and there are also a wide selection of well known branded food outlets, family favourites and new restaurants with awards to their name.
Cheltenham is fortunate enough to be able to offer many al fresco dining experiences, allowing you to sample the continental atmosphere on offer, from the cafes on the promenade to the restaurants and bistros in the districts of Montpellier and more modern Brewery Quarter. Many cafes and venues also provide evening entertainment on a regular basis, with local and know musicians performing, especially at weekends.
There are literally dozens of food and drink related festivals happening in Cheltenham throughout the year, which include the annual Food and Drink Festival, Cheltenham Beer Week, and the Cheltenham Festivals series, with the Jazz, Literature, Music and Science festival all hosting a superb selection of tasty eats and tipples, the Science Festival actually looks at the science of whiskey (and yes, you can sample!). Cheltenham also has a fascinating brewery history and at certain times of the year Microbrewery tours and beery walking tours are on offer.
Cheltenham Foodie Tours take place every Saturday throughout the year, starting at the Tourist Information Centre in Clarence Street, and include a visit to an award winning Cotswold bakery, specialty cheese shop, a visit to a 1920's cocktail lounge and a taster of artisan chocolate and delicious artisan ice cream.
So, why not book a foodie weekend in Cheltenham and take a look at the fantastic selection of the accommodation we have on offer too!
