I visited the Grand Cafe with a large group of family, everyone arrived at different times but were greeted by the warm friendly staff. The parking was the only slight issue and better signage would be a bonus. On arrival to the Grand Cafe the immediate thing you notice is how grand the building actually is! The interior has been...

Lovely venue and atmosphere. The food was delicious and our waiter James made the night for us with his happy and friendly service. The personalised birthday cake was a nice touch, thank you! Would definitely recommend.

Was invited to lunch by a supplier to watch the Cheltenham racing. The atmosphere was brilliant and the staff very efficient and attentive. The set menu was very good and well presented. All in all well worth going if you can

I've been in Grand Cafe few times and the food was always very tasty, nice served on the plate! Good that they have some vegetarian options. Perfect place to go for birthday party or nice diner with a family. Very friendly staff is working there as well! Highly recommend place!

My wife and I visited with our son and girlfriend for a birthday dinner. The big room has a bar and cocktail area at one end and a restraunt at the other. It was bussing and lively.

I was staying in the building connected to Grand and went down a couple of nights for either drinks and dinner! Dinner was actually quite nice! They have just changed the menu so I was surprised to see a few things missing vs what was on the website! I had some lovely grilled cod and a terrine to start! Drinks... More

We recently visited the Grand Cafe for afternoon tea using a gift voucher given to my wife as a birthday gift. We had to book 48 hours in advance and arrived there at about 2.30pm on a Tuesday. The service was great (we were the only people there). When the sandwiches, cake etc arrived I thought we would polish that... More

Such a beautiful restaurant, all the staff were polite and so helpful, our wedding reception was amazing and the afternoon tea was perfect. We had so many lovely comments from our guests and we will definitely be visiting again.

We celebrated our daughters 20th birthday at the Grand Café. The food was delicious and we could not have asked for the waiter to be more helpful and accommodating throughout our evening. The venue itself is very elegant, at the same time very comfortable. A great night out, I look forward to my next visit...
