About Us and Terms and Conditions

Our reviews of Cheltenham restaurants cafes and culture venues strive to be up to date and authentic. We don’t write favourably in return for freebies. Neither do we merely recycle press releases. Critical Cheltenham’s aim is to give you an authentic opinion covering what a place is like and what you can expect to pay. ‘Opinion’ is the key word and we encourage you to form your own opinion of venues and businesses.

Our food reviews look at food, drink and atmosphere. For attractions and cultural events we look at the ‘Wow’ factor and entertainment value. New reviews are posted all the time and are updated, based on our most recent visit.

Have we missed any independent Cheltenham restaurants cafes? Do you feel that we should visit a particular shop or visitor attraction? Are we missing any culture venues? Or perhaps you  disagree with our verdict?  Please get in touch!
