A “beautiful, stylish hotel and restaurant in a prime town-centre location” (the Prom), whose parent group ‘The Lucky Onion’, is run by Superdry founder Julian Dunkerton (who is set to open a sixth link – the 300-year-old The Crown pub, in Minchinhampton – in November 2019). On balance, reports are positive, but all come with a catch: “elegant, but ultimately style over substance…”, “well-prepared food, service can be haphazard…”, “everything was delicious (and priced accordingly!)…”

Part of the five-strong ‘The Lucky Onion’ chain, owned by Superdry guru Julian Dunkerton – this gorgeous Georgian house on the Prom has put the style into Cheltenham since opening five years ago; the ambience (and to some extent food) can be “great”, but patchy service continues to be a drag.

Set on the Promenade in prime “Regency Cheltenham”, this luxe Georgian townhouse hotel made quite a splash when it opened in 2013; but, while the “cool” vibe (“especially for Cheltenham”) and “lovely” decor still impress, service is “slow”, competing soundtracks between restaurant and bar can create a “cacophony”, and the food is only “OK rather than great, and expensive for what it is”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
