Walk past Boots Corner and you feel like you’re in a whole different world to the regency ‘posh’ part of Cheltenham. The Lower High Street has long had a bit of a ‘rough’ reputation despite attempts to regenerate and rebrand.
However, following the recent Brewery redevelopment, people are starting to venture west to places like The Cosy Club and even further along..! With great restaurants like The Coconut Tree on St Paul’s Road doing well, Cheltonians are visiting from posher parts of the town. Hopefully, these areas will start to see even more business.
My husband loves this area and came up with this blog post idea. He enjoys the bustle and life of the Lower High Street along with a lot of the places to eat. I went for a look around today and saw that many ‘units’ were up for sale so maybe there will be even more new places to come!
1. Ginger and Garlic
Korean restaurant where you can eat authentic Korean food including ‘barbecue’ where you cook it yourself! After eating, you could have a go at Karaoke as they have a room you can hire out!
Noddle Bar and Sushi to takeaway.
3. Bar and Wok
Established Chinese favourite on the High Street. Restaurant and takeaway.
Mexican wraps/Burritos – my step-sons love them and they have great TripAdvisor reviews.
5. The Cosy Club
Bar and restaurant. Great atmosphere and all types of food.
6. Falafel King
Excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. Still need to check it out.
7) The Willow Tree
Crafts shop that also runs workshops and serves tea/coffee and cake too.
8) Deepam South Indian
South Indian takeway food. Very good reviews on TripAdvisor.www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g186284-d7827912-Reviews-Deepam_South_Indian-Cheltenham_Cotswolds_England.html
9) The Coconut Tree (cheating as it’s not on the High Street but St Paul’s Road behind it.)
If you haven’t been here yet, why not? Amazing Sri Lankan food and great atmosphere.
10) The School House Café (see above – St Paul’s Road)
Great community café with lovely food and lots of space.
