After working in some of the best restaurants in the world, I’ve seen some amazing food but also a lot of waste. Now more than ever zero waste is being brought into the public eye and in Restaurant GL50, I plan to reduce food waste!

The menu was incredible, very interesting combinations. Great vibe in the restaurant, perfect for a date but also for dinner with friends. The owner and exec chef came out and thanked us for visiting the restaurant which was a nice touch.

Fantastic place, great food and friendly efficient service. Tucked down a small side street in the town center. This is one of the best meals I've had in a long time and reasonably priced. The 'Raw venison, turnips, caramelised whey' starter was amazing as was my Guineafowl main - lots of great flavours. The locally sourced sourdough bread and home made butter was a nice touch between courses. Didn't sample the wine list this time, but will do when we return.

This was our first time at GL50 and we will be returning very soon.
The food was excellent in taste and value. Compared to other eateries in Cheltenham this is one not to be missed.
It was a nice touch for Jonus to come and ask us about our meal.
See you soon.

I didn't dare hope GL50 would be anything like as good as the much- missed White Spoon, but on the basis of a first visit, it's absolutely tremendous. Another brilliant chef at work. Highly recommended, we can't wait to go back.

Excellent food in flavour and presentation, a creative menu and perfect portion sizes; a warm welcome from front of house, and a visit from the chef whose enthusiasm for his art is palpable. A perfect casual fine-dining experience at a very reasonable price.

Absolutely amazing food and really friendly chilled out vibe! Loved all the dishes we had - each one had such a wonderful combination of flavours. Great to meet the chefs who created the dishes when they bring them to your table too.

My wife and I visited GL50 for lunch - our choice of restaurant was based partly on the reviews on tripadvisor and partly on our curiosity regarding the "minimal food waste" policy. Our experience was truly delightful and its one we plan to repeat as soon as we can. The welcome was warm and heartfelt, the food was excellent, the service was of the highest order and all at a reasonable price. I cannot recommend GL50 highly enough - get in early before word gets around.

We had a fabulous evening, the service was lovely - informal but informative and then the chef and his team presented some of the courses. We almost don’t want to tell anyone about it to keep it a hidden gem but it would be better to have more people there.

Excellent 3 course lunch cooked and presented to fine dining standards. Difficult to find fault - perhaps a little too quiet, although the choice of background music was appreciated. Certainly deserves to be a success.

We very much enjoyed our first trip to GL50. The food and the service were very good and it was a nice surprise to meet the Chef in person and his enthusiasm for the project is obvious. We will be back!

Opening week and will have to improve if it wants to succeed. Only five tables occupied well less than half the capacity. Our main order came out wrong ordered fish but what came was duck. They changed the dish but the refire meant my partner recived a lamb dish thar was not to a goid standard. The lamb was now tough. When the bill came that also showed the duck which wsd never ordered. Then ensued an arguement with the waitress who said it was a system issue. She had entered fish into the system but it had defaulted to duck. I suggested that systems don't change orders but staff do. Very poor service and argueing with a guest over an error not of their making needs to be focused on customer experience if they are to get the restarant full

Good first visit to a new restaurant in Cheltenham. Good friendly and attentive but not obtrusive service. Enjoyed the menu on offer which had a short but interesting choice of dishes available. Mains were not as hot as would have liked to be but its a minor niggle on an otherwise good first visit.

Definitely would give GL50 another try

Just everything one could want from a special dinner out. Food was beautiful and so tasty, owners and staff were charming and prices were reasonable for this quality of food.
