The service here was excellent, the food was excellent. We went for a family birthday meal, have been there several times before, the restaurant has been refurbished and looks great. My 16 month old started having a bit of a melt down and the waitress went out of her way to get things for him to eat (he's teething and... More

Joules is a little off the beaten track though it's only a ten minutes walk from the centre of town. We went there on a Sunday for lunch and it was empty when we arrived and only two other tables taken when we left. It's not the smartest place and it's on the lower ground floor, but the food is...

Very glad we chose to eat here instead of venturing into Cheltenham. We enjoyed fresh pizzas and a lovely halloumi starter. Found the staff to be incredibly friendly and helped us with places to visit etc! Would certainly recommend and we will be returning!

We dropped by on a Saturday lunchtime, after my daughter had read promising reviews of this bar and restaurant in the basement of the Clarence Court Hotel, only to find the place completely deserted. Odd, we thought for such a nicely decorated place - well stocked bar, comfortable lounge area and a large restaurant. Even the quality background music suggested... More

I ate here when staying at the hotel. The menu was varied and service very good. I was quite pleased with the food and will probably use the restaurant again when I stay.

I have been to Joules a few times in the last 4-5 months as we've recently moved closeby. On our first visit we met Scott behind the bar who runs the hotel and has been extremely friendly and hospitable each time we have been. We have tried a range of dishes and they've all been incredible and very generous in... More

We ate at Joules restaurant on both nights of our stay at the Clarence Court Hotel. The restaurant, tucked away in the basement of the hotel, is a warm, cosy and intimate place to eat with fantastic service. The food is excellent - our steaks were cooked to perfection and our children polished off their meals on both nights too!... More

Good range on the menu plus when taking the orders Scott was happy to accommodate individual requests. He also tried to persuade the children to try the salad.
