The Tavern


Cheltenham’s friendly neighbourhood restaurant and bar. A favourite of locals, The Tavern started with a simple mission…to deliver delicious food at reasonable prices. Our mission remains the same.

Tuck in and experience locally sourced, British produce that’s carefully crafted into punchy and full flavoured dishes. Savour your way through our taverna style menu from Tavern Classics, filling Hereford Beef Short Rib and of course finishing with some utterly sinful puddings.

Our talented bartenders use fantastic local produce to create some of the finest cocktails in Cheltenham. Muddling and mixing the perfect ingredients to emulate an old favourite or a new creation. Their experience, knowledge and awards for service make them a bar team to be reckoned with. Passionate about all things liquid ranging from spirits and cocktails to craft beers and even the non-alcoholic side of the industry. That’s right, we’ve even got your designated drivers covered with our mocktails.

Eat & Drink

The menu is relaxed and comforting, made up of delicious taverna style food from Europe and far beyond. Punchy flavours made with wonderful produce. Dishes include lamb with roast garlic & mint meatballs, salt ‘n’ pepper squid with nuoc cham, slow cooked Hereford beef blade, celeriac puree. Let’s not forget the Sticky Toffee Ice-cream Sandwich.

Have you tried the Office Canteena at The Tavern? Over-filled sarnies and comfort dishes are the perfect for a quick sit in or take away lunch!

And when you’re finished with food, pull up a chair and grab a tipple allowing the familiar atmosphere of The Tavern to capture your evening, knowing that if you stay late, we’ll play late. Revel in music as we turn down the lights and turn up the volume. You’re in for the night…stay late and we’ll play late.
