About Retreat Wine Bar

Retreat Wine Bar opened its doors all the way back in 1982 and has since become a Cheltenham institution, known for its rustic French bistro-style dishes, stylish atmosphere and perfectly curated wine selection. Whether it is for a night on the tiles, or an afternoon spent wining and dining, Retreat Wine Bar is a local favourite. Tuck into a bowl of mussels in fennel and dill cream sauce, braised lamb shank with cavolo nero, puy lentils, chorizo and salsa verde, or the leek and cheddar tart at lunchtime, or head to Retreat Wine Bar in the evening and graze on a charcuterie board while enjoying a bottle of wine or two. With its high ceilings and chic French-inspired decor, it’s no surprise that Retreat Wine Bar has become such a fixture in Cheltenham. Book a table and head over to Suffolk Parade in the Montpellier area to find out what the fuss is all about!

Delicious food and excellent service on a very busy day. Place was filled with people dogs and children and was great fun. I would recommend to friends but have been coming for years myself.

Fantastic, friendly, attentive service. Our food was really tasty and high quality, with very generous portion sizes and our bill represented exceptional value for money. We will definitely be returning!
