We ate here in February and I can't fault it. We had wanted to dine here for a while and so glad we now have. The service was excellent, even booking and pre ordering via email was speedy. We chose from the Table d'hote menu and all of the food was excellent, the best meal out in a long time.... More

An excellent meal with attentive service. We were unable to get a taxi back to our hotel,despite assurances by the taxi company. Wonderfully the lovely lady owner took us back in her car. Well beyond the best service. All the praise is well earned. I highly recommend this restaurant to everybody.

In our opinion, this is by far the best restaurant in Tewkesbury. Run by a couple, we've always had first class personal service. While waiting for our starter, we were served homemade vegetable soup with perfect hot homemade bread. We then shared a start of Deep Fried Brie Wedges, which was lovely. One day, we should explore the rest of... More

Id booked a table for mine and my husbands anniversary and I had high hopes after readings all the reviews. I have to say I was no disappointed, I booked the table via the website and got a txt message and email confirming the booking which I thought was a nice touch. We went with the 3 course set menu,...

Tewkesbury has a lot of restaurants and many of them are very good. However, My Great Grandfather's is in a league above them all - without a doubt the best restaurant in the area. The food is superb. The ingredients are of the highest quality and the recipes all include little creative touches and flavours that you wouldn't normally expect.... More

We visited today really because this place has such excellent reviews....... and it didn't take long to see why. It wasn't a particularly busy evening but we were swiftly seated at a table close to an attractive and warm open fire. The charming owner made us feel comfortable and attended very professionally. The menu was more than adequate with a... More
