Great food, excellent friendly staff. Recommended. WE came on recommendation with friends from the USA. If they enjoyed the experience, they must be doing something right.

Exceptional service! You waiters are awesome and so down to earth! Very impressed! I came before I lived it then. Then obviously came again and have come away with exactly the same thoughts!!

Small problem with food sorted out with great charm. The mark of a good place is how these things are dealt with, so 10 out of 10 for Gridiron, Cheltenham. Delicious burger, churros and chocolate. Thoroughly rcommend this place :-)

Food was amazing, cocktails fairly average, well priced, staff ok but tables were really sticky and not pleasant. When mentioned to the staff we were asked what we wanted them to do about it in a confused way. Manager came over to apologize and said was varnished and they can't do anything about it other then leave our menus as table mats.

We arrived slightly early and our table was still occupied - when the other party left it didn't take too long to be sat. However, we weren't given drinks menus and we had to ask for them as no one seemed to bring them. Finally we ordered drinks and then food - they all came quickly and the quality was good. All in all, food was great, but lacking a bit in customer service.

Went on a Saturday night for dinner and it was relatively busy though not packed. Was really. Okay when we first arrived but it quitened down soon. The wait for out drinks order was a bit long, and they got one of the orders slightly wrong. But the waitress and the sever were very apologetic and the service was good otherwise. We all enjoyed our burgers and left the place absolutely stuffed.

Really nice place. Staff were great. Found it really expensive! To have a 7oz fillet steak it was £25 then I had to pay for fries on top + sides + sauce so it was £30+ just for my main. Wasn't the best steak I've had either. Won't be rushing back only due to cost!

Food was acceptable but the service was not great, it was a busy night for sure but it's the Christmas season so should be prepared for it. Kitchen closed before we could order desert - would have been nice if someone had checked if we wanted andesert before this happened but as we had to keep asking for a server this wasn't likely to happen.

Excellent food quality and lovely staff too. Highly recommended and will visit again. We particularly liked the onion rings, you must try them! Made to feel very welcome and seemed good value considering the quality of food was high.

Food all freshly prepared and of a high quality. Everything for our party of 6 arrived at the table together. Friendly and genuinely helpful staff. We weren't rushed and our 12 year old loved the football table! would recommend and will definitely eat there again.

Fabulous meal and atmosphere. The hot wings were really hot and spicy - so many purport to be hot and end up disappointing. The steak was full of flavour and cooked to perfection. A simply brilliant experience👍

Great atmosphere, friendly service, seated quickly with a selection of where we would like to sit. Drinks however took a long time to come and was not provided with the usual plate of popcorn and jug of water like the times I had been before, however still a good time for my birthday meal.

Service a little slow when we were almost first in - last to be served. A little random in taking of orders for food & drink - asked twice for food & only half of party served with drinks. Food however was excellent

We arrived on time and we were promptly seated at our table. The restaurant was busy but not full. The table was sticky, and wobbly. Our waitress came and took our drinks order which took about 10 minutes to reach us. After a while she returned and took our food order. This took approximately 30mins to reach us. But while we were waiting we looked around. We had no Candle on the table every other table did, we were also were not offered complimentary popcorn. We ordered another round of drinks this took us 15 minutes to get to us, by this time our food had arrived and we were halfway through eating it. We were told that the restaurant was very busy by two waiters. This is not what we wanted to hear. We weren't asked if the food was ok just left to get on with our meal. Which was lovely. Our plates were cleared away, we weren't offered a dessert menu either. So we asked for the bill and left. We left no tip as we feel the service was very poor and lacking in customer service. We booked a meal here to celebrate our anniversary and we're looking forward to it. But we left feeling disappointed by the experience.

Food was good. The waiters had a tendency to hover around the table too much, especially towards the end of the meal. The acoustics and background music were so loud that it was hard to have a conversation without shouting. This was so off putting that my family will not be rushing back.

Good food, fairly good service. One member of our party ordered 3 mini pint size taster beers and after they eventually turned up they were just placed in front of us with no explanation as to which was what, so that was disappointing. Everything else was fine.

Very quiet but it was a Monday night. Steaks were good if a little strangely priced (expensive for some cuts). Dirty fries were great, large portions too. Service was a little hit and miss, had to ask twice for some things and wrong desert delivered. Overall I'd say it was good food but a bit expensive.

This place is good for a decent value burger, much better than the average pub burger, along with a couple of american style ales. The desserts are pretty top notch. The brownie and Cheltenham Mess were both tasty.

Excellent as ever. Great setting. Great food. Great service. If you like burgers, steaks, ribs then you'll love Grid Iron. Why twenty five words? Random.

Food was an exceptional standard, thoroughly enjoyed it. The only criticism was the service was initially slow to begin with, even though the restaurant wasn't very busy.

Grid Iron always has a good ambience, tonight the Tribeca pulled pork was not good. We complained and we told there is a new menu and its being dropped. On reflection it would have been better if they had offered a refund!

It was about as cold inside as out. Bottle of red wine served ice cold - yuk. Service extremely slow given they weren't busy. Squid starter def elastic bands and too much batter. Mains OK though veg side dishes massively over-seasoned. A disappointment for the last day of the hols.

Food fine and service. Mighty cold in there,(November 2016) Urban style decor quite depressing! Would not rush back as quite run if the mill all round, priced top end for what you get.
