Booked a table roughly 2 weeks in advance because we'd heard this restaurant was difficult to get in at. It was fairly busy downstairs so we were seated upstairs. We were the only table up there but definitely didn't get forgotten about. Our waiter was...More

Was fortunate enough to get dragged here last weekend with some friends for what turned out to be one of the best tasting burgers I've ever had! Cheltenham has loads of great burger joints, but this is firmly at the top of the list. Great...More

The food is incredible, the burgers and chilli chips are stunning. However by for the best are the salads. The only slight problem is the the DJ can be a bit over powering.

This was our first visit to The Tavern since it re-opened and I was hoping for good things. I knew the menu had been changed to just the burgers and sides when it re-opened but I'd loved it before as it was the one place...More

My friend was super excited to show me this place, and I can immediately see why. The burger was one of the best I've ever had for flavour and quality. The sides were amazing-I'll definitely get the mac n cheese every time, and the sweet...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.
