Serving brasserie food in the centre of town, Café Rouge in Cheltenham replicates the unhurried style of a French bistro. Ornate chandeliers and antique-style lamps lend light to the cosy dining room and bar, while the outside terrace is the perfect place to watch the world go by as you dine.

As part of the nationwide group of Café Rouge restaurants, this branch offers their range of classic French dishes such as deep-fried camembert, baguettes, steak frites and mussels. There are also lighter dishes if you don't have much time to spare. The set menus for lunch and dinner (on certain days) are excellent value for money. There is also a good range of French wines, many from less well known producers.

In true French style, breakfast is also an important meal at Café Rouge. With croissants, pain au chocolat, omelettes and croques, as well as hot chocolate, tea and all types of coffees, it makes a great start to the day.

Chocolate ganache or apple tarte tatin make indulgent desserts, while a great range of children’s options is sure to please younger diners. Café Rouge Cheltenham is open early until late, centrally located on The Promenade.

    The mussels on the main menu were unavailable. Bizarrely, pork on the special menu was available, but not if one tried to order it as a main course from the standard menu. Eton Mess was delicious.

    Service brilliant HOWEVER, we chose it because of the Mussels and Frites and they didn't have any Mussels!!!!!
