GL 50 provides top class cuisine along with friendly and timely service in a modest, clean and uncluttered, environment.. good value.
Can't fault the service, the food was outstanding then add the ambience and we had one of the best dining experiences ever. Only pity was we were visiting Cheltenham so can't go back on a regular basis. Good luck to Jonas and the team.
Fantastic food, some of the best food I have eaten.
Each course was distinguishable from the previous one. The flavours of each dish were amazing.
Thank you to the staff and the team for the exceptional service
Excellent meal with exceptional food, service and wine. It was for a special occasion and the added touches were greatly appreciated. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this restaurant highly.
Absolutely outstanding meal. Real attention to detail I every way even with menus being presented in personalised envelopes. Food was incredible cannot wait to come again and will be recommending to everyone.
I've missed taste like this for a long time now. No matter what you pick from the menu you wont be disappointed.
Great food, lovely ambiance, excellent staff. Highly recommended.
Service & food was very good. We had the tasting menu & my husband had the accompanying flight of drinks. We were both impressed right from the oysters we had to start right through to the cherry Bakewell dessert. It was will prepared & pleasantly presented. The service was attentive yet unobtrusive & relaxed. The restaurant was quiet which made conversation easier but there was a weird mix of rock to Sinatra playing in the background. The music seemed random & didn't really fit the style of the restaurant. It didn't detract from our experience- I just found it odd. My husband & I were already taking about going back to sample more of their menu before we'd even finished our meal & I look forward to returning.
Little touches and extras were lovely - menus in a hand written envelop and complemetary amazebouche.
Service was attentive but not intrusive
Food was excellent and interesting and the portion sizes were perfect
Enjoyable evening. Definitely the Cheltenham restaurant to visit for exceptional food, creatively prepared.
This was a very special meal for us as we were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and the 9 course taster menu accompanied by the wine flight option meant that we got to sample the best that GL50 had to offer. A discreet location with a very relaxing atmosphere, we will certainly be going back.
Superb food with a quality drinks list. Excellent and attentive service, without pretention.
First visit and was not disappointed, the food was exceptional, the service was first class. We will definitely be back.
We had an amazing meal here for our anniversary and my wife’s birthday. Both the service and food were excellent and would thoroughly recommend to others.
A lovely restaurant in Cheltenham. The menu was very inventive with just enough choice to know the produce was top quality and very fresh. Between the four of us we tasted most things and each of us enjoyed what we had from the vegetarian options, to the pork and the kedgeree. The sides were delicious - especially the truffle mash. If you are looking for a meal that is excellent quality and unusual menu then this is definitely a good choice
Fantastic from the minute we walked in to the minute we left, so friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere is relaxed and warm and the food was absolutely stunning, we loved everything we had. The truffle mash is next level!! Great place, great people and amazing food :-)
Stellar. Again. Thank you.
There is no better restaurant in Cheltenham (and yes, some of the others are very good). Different level of cuisine.
Vegetarian guests were blown away by the care and attention to non meat dishes (tasting menu that was tasty - for every mouthful!)
Amazing from the minute we arrived to the time we left. Certainly worth the wait for an available table to book and with very good reason. A must for any food lovers!
Stunning. Deserves a Michelin star. Best meal we have had in a very long time (have been twice this month - tasting menu and standard both spectacular).
Excellent food, great service and do not forget to try desert!!! Hidden gem
My son treated me to lunch for my birthday and it was fabulous, lovely atmosphere, we both felt comfortable, great service and fantastic food, we thoroughly enjoyed it, highly recommend.
It was all amazing. I am gluten free and there was plenty of options and alternatives made available.
We ate A La Carte from the small but interesting menu. We had a 'Special' main course which was a rib of beef to share, truly delicious and far too much for us to eat so we took the remainder home! The flavour of all of the food was spectacular. Service was attentive and friendly and we felt at home as soon as we entered the restaurant.
Brilliant location for a birthday meal. Interesting menu and enjoyable experience
This is a top class restaurant and to be highly recommended at star level.
This was our first visit and we have booked again.
Food and service were both top-notch. Really enjoyed our evening.
Excellent evening. The stylish yet warm ambiance created a lovely welcome The staff were highly attentive without being intrusive
Food exquisite - so fresh and original. An eclectic and original wine selection was available complementing the dishes perfectly. I could see the chef of this restaurant Jonas Lodge becoming a rising star in the years ahead.
Outstanding! Jonas Lodge's cooking shows the quality of his training by some of the UK's leading chefs. The short, imaginative menu - 4 starters/main courses/puddings plus a pair of oyster choices and a couple of specials - shows GL50's commitment to cooking to order. We had scallop with celeriac, gooseberry, yeast & pig cheek and a venison tartare, both beautifully presented and loaded with interesting flavours. We had salt marsh lamb to follow, cooked to pink perfection, tender and succulent. The wine list was well chosen and the prices fair. Our server was friendly and helpful with good knowledge of the dishes. Don't go there if you are in a hurry. Cooking of this standard takes time and care, so dinner is a relaxed process, providing a whole evening's entertainment. The only downsides were the piped musak (it added nothing useful) and, absolutely not the restaurant's fault, a loud-mouthed woman on the next table who never stopped talking about herself! The man she was with said nothing at all until they left, when he mumbled “Sorry” to someone whose chair he brushed. We had a wonderful meal, great service from delightful staff and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. I hope they get a Michelin toque soon!
What a surprise. Had a meal with some old friends and our first visit to GL50.
The whole experience from start to finish was truly outstanding.
Fabulous staff, menu, ambience and food sensational.
A lovely touch for the chef and owner to come and introduce himself.
I’ve always enjoyed this location and with the new development it sounds as though it will become a great location. The restaurant has been tastefully decorated and the relaxed ambience was enhanced by the satisfying soundtrack. The service had the right balance of attentiveness, the staff were lovely, the food was great and the house red very drinkable. The menu was small but well thought through with good options for all tastes. I really enjoyed the evening and will definitely be back.
Delicious innovative food and fantastic service. Always a pleasure to eat here!
Great food, great wine pairing and great service, we throughly enjoyed our evening
Thank You To All the Staff at GL50. We ate here on Saturday Evening and the whole dining experience was excellent
Such wonderful imaginative food cooked to protection served by professional, friendly staff
We wish you all the very best in your future and when next in Cheltenham we will come back and eat
Excellent in every way. The best food I’ve had in Cheltenham and the Cotswolds.
Absolutely phenomenal service, Polite and incredibly informed staff added to an incredible experience. Food served to perfection and presented impeccably.
On arrival, the menu's were in an envelope with the lead name of the party on, shown to the table, really nice ambiance and decor. We were served with tasters from the kitchen which was a nice touch. Food was excellent as was the service. 5 starts from me all round excellent experience.
Food was lovely, the staff were super knowledgable and friendly, and the cocktails were amazing! My new favourite place to eat.
Amazing food, great restaurant lovely staff. Will definitely be going back
Incredible food and wonderful service. An absolute must whenever we're in Chelts.
