Harden's says

Yes, it's yet another Ivy Brasserie. Occupying Cheltenham's Grade I listed Montpellier Rotunda, the restaurant offers all-day dining with a menu of modern British dishes alongside Ivy classics.

“The fabulous décor in this converted bank and former ballroom with a grand circular bar” is the prime selling point at this branch of Richard Caring’s national chain. Ratings have edged up in the last year, but the “lovely building” can’t mask the feeling that “the menu choices are more like a Café Rouge”, while “the food is OK, but doesn’t match the ambience”.

“It looks beautiful but hasn’t found its feet yet” – this outpost of Richard Caring’s burgeoning national chain occupies the grade I listed Rotunda building, but is one of its least consistent members, with reports of “patchy” service and some “very paltry and unexciting” meals. Experiences have varied within a single meal – “how can they go so quickly from poor to perfection?”

In a ‘roll-out’ that would do McDonald’s proud, this iconic brand has gone for it this year, opening virtually simultaneously in practically all of the UK’s top restaurant cities. The ambition is impressive: let’s hope standards hold up better than they did when, for example ‘Browns’ tried to pull off a similar trick.
