About Spice Lodge

Spice Lodge is a restaurant that puts flavour first. Their menu is a combination of Indian and Thai dishes that’s quite unique in Cheltenham and the wider West Country, and offers diners plenty of options. Both cuisines have a reputation for fire that is well-deserved – and heat-seekers will not be disappointed – as well as plenty of milder dishes for the less adventurous. Book a table down on Montpellier Drive in Montpellier to taste the best Asian cooking.

Very good food and great service as always. There was a party in the main room when we went but we were still served promptly and felt like they weren't too busy for us at all.

Fantastic. Lovely restaurant in a beautiful old building. Stylish and atmospheric. Faultless service from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. Very courteous, friendly and attentive staff who really gave the impression that they cared about the diner's experience. Tasty food, nicely presented with some of the usual favourites such as Rogan Josh and Jalfrezi, but also a menu of speciality dishes. This was my third visit- on this occasion it was a family birthday- and it didn't disappoint. I would definitely recommend it and will visit again. Thank you Spice Lodge.

Great food at resonable prices when you consider the quality and the absolutely sublime service. Not my first time at the Spice Lodge and not my last either. I usually take my foreign friends there to experience a great curry.

We were made most welcome, as usual,by the staff of the restaurant. They made us feel relaxed as we were shown to our table. The waiter was most complimentary about the way we looked and it was good to talk to him more like an old friend. The food was tremendous, really delicious and the service was immaculate - as always.

This was an early Friday evening dinner at a place we have known well for many years. Right now it’s back on top of its game with strong fresh flavours and delightful staff. It’s a comfortable environment too, tablecloths carpets & curtains are increasingly rare these days, but they do help suppress noise and deliver a relaxing experience. Back soon...
