Tell us about your menu: It covers a mixed bag of everyone's favourites but we do it excellently!



How often do you change your menu? As soon as the customers approve the new dishes, as we always give the new items for the customers to try with our compliments.

How would you describe your approach to food?


The only way is the direct way - no complications.



What advice would you give to a novice?


Keep it simple, clean and tidy.



What has been your most memorable (or unusual) meal?


A 10 course banquet meal in a temple on an island off Hong Kong!



What is your favourite local ingredient?


Too many to name!



Why should people visit you?


We pride ourselves on what we do and we have been trading now for 25 years.



What would you recommend about the local area?


The Promenade in Cheltenham, Bourton-on-the-Water and The Slaughters.
