    French restaurants in Cheltenham serve up classic cuisine

    Fine dining in the UK has always looked to France for inspiration. For many chefs, a grounding in the finer elements of French cuisine is the starting point for their culinary careers. There have been French restaurants in the UK for over a century, but since the 1980s, British diners in towns like Cheltenham, have embraced a less elevated style of French dining, in simple, stylish bistros and brasseries offering classic dishes in a relaxed atmosphere. So, for lovers of Gallic cooking, it’s time to discover the French restaurants in Cheltenham.

    Experience relaxed bistro and brasserie dining in Cheltenham's French restaurants

    Cheltenham's French restaurants include brasserie dining that are more relaxed places than formal establishments and usually offer an all-day menu. Classic brasserie menus include dishes such as steak frites, salade Nicoise, and moules marinieres and desserts will invariably include a creme brulee. These are dishes popularised in the brasseries of Paris, and Cheltenham diners can enjoy a little glimpse of Parisian style, along with a decent wine list. Bistros offer creative liberties to the chef patron, with menus that often feature authentic regional cuisine such as Provençal or Breton specialities. As in France, bistros will often offer a set menu at lunch time or in the early evening.
