We ate here twice while staying at the hotel. We had pasta the first night which was very good, so returned for the Thursday 'steak night' meal on our last night. My steak was the best I'd had for several years....

Visiting our son who has moved to Cheltenham and wanted a place to eat and where we could catch up as well and Joules certainly delivered, not only were we given a very warm welcome, we were also made to feel very unrushed and that nothing was to much trouble, we were reassured that all food is prepared to order...

Sitting out side at Joules Cafe on a lovely summers evening in a tree lined avenue food was lovely, pizzas excellent and a portion of lasagne which could have fed four, lovely. Carbonara which was nice and creamy which brought back memories of Italy.

We enjoyed the beef and wild boar burgers. All the sides served, chips onion rings, salad - were well prepared. Dessert was a slight let down, the cheesecake was not available and the brownie was a little dry. The portions were very generous. The situation is ordinary, we ate here because we were staying at the hotel, otherwise we would... More

As part of the Clarence Court hotel you get the same friendly service as in the hotel. Food is good & value for money. Go for the weekly specials - especially the fish pie!

After a visit to the pictures I looked on line for a restaurant on that side of town. Found Joules quite by accident as I was not aware of its existence before. What a gem. Good service, wonderful food, lovely atmosphere. Will definitely return.

Joules is the perfect place to meet and relax. Whether it is a leisurely breakfast, a fantastic coffee with friends, a light bite, a quick drink or lingering over a sumptuous dinner we really do have it all. We are passionate about our food with fresh local produce used as much as possible and our Pizzas are second to none!
