My friends and I had a lovely dinner here during Cheltenham Race Week - the menu was much improved and reasonably priced food (drinks a bit expensive) and great burger fix. The atmosphere and decor was fantastic so all in all a great relaxed place for dinner.

Where do I start - having liked this place pre the fire and changes and read a fair few negative reviews i thought I would try it for myself .

I chose this venue for my birthday meal for myself and 25 friends because the reviews were quite good... it did not live up to this. As we were a large party I was in regular contact with the events team. I had emailed over our food orders and unfortunately had to cancel 4 orders due to drop outs which... More

A group of 6 of us went to the Tavern last night and granted I had one if the best ever burgers I have had in Cheltenham. I had the cheese and bacon burger and would 100% have it again. My gripes with the place is that it was once a really unusual with epic spam fritters, rock shandys and... More

The Tavern had a good, imaginative Pub menu previously but is now just an expensive and hugely underwhelming burger bar. Service was woeful and without a smile, it was as if a customer on a Sunday lunchtime was the last person they wanted to see. The burger was average at best and the whole experience a huge letdown. On this... More

The Tavern started with a simple mission...to deliver delicious food at reasonable prices. Our mission remains the same. We bring you favourites from the old along with gobsmackingly delicious burgers, sinful shakes laced with bourbon and bespoke ice cream sundaes where you can pick the flavour, toppings and sauces. What's new is you can eat at any time from midday to midnight. Expect homemade, artisan burgers, made with local dry aged beef on Stokes Marsh Farm from Aberdeen Angus cross Hereford cows and a whole load of twists and classics like mac n cheese, sinful shakes and bespoke ice cream sundaes.
