The whole experience, from the general buzz and thrum of the restaurant and bar; to the polite and friendly staff, the absolutely gorgeous food and drink, to the live pianist playing whilst we ate, all while not breaking the bank for the bill! We have eaten here several times we have never had a bad experience!! We will be going again very soon, that’s a definite!!

Slightly chaotic this time with a few errors on orders, but we all get it wrong occasionally ! The pre show meal will always be a bit of a rush but really makes the evening an event!

As regulars at Teatro, I can honestly say that it never disappoints! The food is delicious and the menus varied, always served piping hot and in good time, which when booking a pre- theatre supper, is most important. The ambience in Teatro is special, especially on a Friday/Saturday night and Sunday afternoons, when there is a wonderful piano/singer entertaining you. Last but by no means least, the Staff are very attentive, friendly and always helpful.

Food ok. Style over substance. Menu sounds good, and well presented. Food rather tasteless and not worth the money.

Great venue and service

Seems they haven’t got the menu right. Is trying to be fine dinning but can’t execute the flavours

Food mostly good - although seafood linguine could have had more seafood for the price. Desserts were fantastic. Background music was awful although it was turned down when requested.

A very enjoyable experience overall! The food was delicious. I had the pork belly which was a bit too fatty for me and the crackling was chewy not crispy, however everything else was perfect! I really fancied cheese and crackers to finish but due to 'a very busy period' they had run out of cheese and crackers :(
The staff were very attentive , the surroundings conducive to an great pre show meal!

The meal we had was a pre theatre meal and the service was very good we weren’t kept waiting although the restaurant was busy. The meal was lovely and the ambiance of the restaurant was very Christmassy and welcoming. We will definitely be back next year for another meal.

Overall a good dining option. An eclectic design gives an interesting look to the restaurant and bar which is fun if not actually suitable for dining. The table in the cubbyhole requires everything to be passed to and fro and much movement should one of the group need the loo or just want to stretch their legs.
Food was good - a decent variety for all preferences and mostly delicious. Thankfully the courses are not overly explained on the menu and they were served in good time.
Music - a rather odd series of tunes were playing and occasionally they were played rather too loud but not unpleasant.
Would I recommend to a friend - I would but I would advise them to pick out their preferred seating when booking and be prepared, if you are in a small group, not to be able to speak to most unless lip reading is a skill.

Have eaten here a number of times, pre and post theatre visits plus a Sunday lunch. The food is consistently high quality, well presented and very tasty.
Service by the young staff always knowledgeable, attentive and customer focused. I have no problem recommending Teatro.

Teatro pre-theatre supper, never ceases to impress us! Great meal, great service, such lovely staff, a great start to a lovely evening watching A Christmas Carol and then back into the Bar for chocolate orange cocktails and wonderful piano playing! 👌

This was the first time that we had eaten at Theatro. We had a very warm welcome and were sat down immediately. The food was good quality with reasonable helpings. Service was good, with the one negative comment being that people's plates were cleared whilst others had not finished eating. I would definitely recommend it especially if one is going to the Barn Theatre

This was one of my best nights out ever! Fantastic food. The food was delicious and presented very beautifully and artistically. I’m told the chef worked in a Michelin starred kitchen- it showed! Just lovely!! Then just toddled upstairs to the theatre - unbelievably brilliant! Had expected a nice meal and a good play but was blown away....!!! Such a professional (major production standard) show. I’ll be back! Went straight home and booked again!

Slow service, very cold and lots of people walking through the restaurant that were loud and drunk. Kitchen ran out of cheese for desert - never had that before and it felt like as we were finishing quite late this was an excuse.

Two of us dined there before going to the Barn Theatre next door. Booking was easy and the welcome very warm. The restaurant is a series of small dining rooms which are comfortable and well lit with interesting decor. The pre theatre menu was excellent with three choice for each course although one dessert ran out. The grilled octopus I had as a starter was just right although the presentation was a little messy. my wifes ham hock was very good. We both had confit de canard for the main course. It was delicious and served with excellent cabbage and potato dishes. Both were well presented, tasty and the portion size was just right. For dessert I had Tonka Bean creme brulee and my wife had the lemon sorbet. Both were very good and my first experience of the wonderful flavour of Tonka Beans. The wines were good but rather expensive.

Lovely food, good service, and a great feel about the place. Could maybe do with a few more things to choose from on the menu, but what they do have on there is all fantastic. Will definitely go again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to a friend.

Shame about the very poor service but I think we may have been unlucky with the unattentive waitress we got for our table. Food I could not fault. Lovely decor and bar area.

The Teatro experience more than met our expectations. The food was delicious.
The octopus and pigeon breast starters, the mains of hake with risotto, venison, and the steak with Parmesan truffle chips, all beautifully presented and so delicious.
Cotswold Passion cocktail was really good and I would definitely order that again. Desserts yummy.
Service friendly, efficient and professional. We had a wonderful evening and definitely plan to return.

Lovely service and funky venue. Food was about the most adventurous we’ve seen in Gloucestershire and the chef /s delivered.
It was cool to then go and sit in the piano bar and watch a young couple play and sing at the piano.
Can’t wait to go back.

Food was good. Service was chaotic. I asked for the sound to be turned down as I couldn’t hear my companions through the music. The manager, barely polite, said no as it changes the atmosphere. By the time it was full, the noise levels were such that you couldn’t hear the music. Presumably people shouting over it to be heard. Ruined my enjoyment of the food and evening. You don’t go to a restaurant to be deafened by the music!! Whatever happened to listening to the customer. PS the loos weren’t very clean either.
