Lukewarm, overdone poached eggs. Stale bread, described as ‘toasted ciabatta’. Not flavoursome whatsoever. Overpriced for what we received.

Lunch, I had crushed avocado & partner had the sausage and mash. Glad to have searched for a nice cafe whilst visiting Cheltenham. Very good value & quality food.

Three of us went out for a late Sunday lunch last weekend. We didn’t want anywhere expensive or overly pretentious, and The County Kitchen proved an excellent choice. It’s definitely more of a cafe/coffee shop than a restaurant, but that is reflected in the prices....More

I would give 0/5 if it were possible. Unrecognisable from the pre-August ‘County Kitchen’ we used to love. PLEASE DON’T BOTHER. Bare restaurant area half painted, lots of clutter in every other corner (not in a suitable functioning condition IMO). Smeary dirty windows. Absolutely stank...More

Visited on a Saturday morning, it currently looks like a building site which at first impressions isn’t great. The waiting staff left little to be desired, one young brunette girl was very polite and friendly, however another lady from oriental background was horrendous, rude, unwelcoming...More
