Boasting 3 AA Rosettes, the magnificent Ellenborough Park offers classic British fine dining in their Beaufort Dining Room. Stunning afternoon teas feature delicate offerings, while rare vintage wines grace the drinks list.

Locally sourced ingredients are sourced to make up fresh and original dishes for the Ellenborough Park menu, with starters like leek & ham hock terrine with punchy piccalilli. Confit cherry tomato and spinach tartlet is served at Beaufort restaurant alongside baby vegetables and a creative curried carrot dressing. For an experimental dessert try the Sambuca tiramisu, served with creamy coffee ice cream and espresso jelly.

Exquisite afternoon teas are served on a silver stand piled high with finger sandwiches, an assortment of cakes and pastries, and tempting sultana and orange scones with Devon clotted cream and jam. Pair with coffee or tea, or splash out on sparkly champagne at Ellenborough Park in Cheltenham.

A superb wine list showcases blends from boutique and family wineries around the world, with over 500 bins to choose from. The original oak panelling, spectacular Tudor fireplaces and stained glass Oriel windows make the Ellenborough Park dining room an outstanding space in the Gloucestershire countryside.

    Afternoon tea at Ellenborough Park was lovely experience. The staff were attentive and the surroundings beautiful. Selection of teas and cakes was excellent. A special treat!

    Lovely setting and food, it has become a victim of its own success as they had to turn people away.

    Our 3rd visit and it is maintaining its very high standard. Beautiful building, very comfortable .
    Staff friendly and attentive but not obtrusive. Not a huge menu but well constructed and most people would find something they liked.
    Food very well cooked and beautifully presented , Michelin star standard.
    Fixed price menu which is good value given the quality of the food and the location.

    Great food, shame about very poor service throughout. Also should not seat screaming children in the middle of the restaurant, does not make for luxury ambience.

    Food lovely, service great until the end! I asked to take my leftover cakes home in a box which i had done lots of times before, the cakes came back in a bit of tin foil and as the chap put them down, he dropped them!! The cakes were then all damaged, i was very upset and when asked for a box again i was met with a very unpleasant response, "well what do you want me to do about it" This isn't what i expect from a 5* Hotel! I finally got a small plastic box which was perfect so why couldn't i have that in the first place? I felt very let down as i quite often go for afternoon tea and its my favourite place in Gloucestershire to go! Hopefully this was a one off!!
