StarBistro at Royal Crescent

Main dining area in Star Bistro pepper crescent; green chairs and white tables on a tiled floor

StarBistro at Royal Crescent is a hidden gem in the heart of a regency terrace in Cheltenham. It is our second eating establishment following StarBistro at Ullenwood.

This is unique yet real workplace enables young people with disabilities to work, train and learn alongside professional hospitality and catering teams. Learners and staff work together to serve great breakfasts, light bistro lunches, afternoon teas, specialist coffees and tasty cakes. If you don’t have time to linger, you can also take advantage of our ‘To-Go’ menu, which is available every day.

Ethics are at the core of StarBistro, and we source as much produce locally and sustainably as possible, making the most of the four seasons of the Cotswolds. We are no ordinary bistro!

Meet in style and comfort – whether it’s for business or pleasure – by hiring the Harcourt Room, our fully equipped private meeting space available for up to 20 guests. Harcourt is located upstairs at StarBistro with its own separate entrance, and boasts a light and airy space complete with modern technology.

Outside catering

From our bases in Cheltenham we regularly work within the borders of Gloucestershire to provide off-site catering to corporate and private clients. We offer ‘Delivery’ and ‘To-Go’ ranges, and work with clients to create menus that are tailored to the style and budgets of their events. Incorporating the same fine ingredients that are used at our StarBistros, you can expect our produce to be locally sourced and organic wherever possible. We can also help you create healthy options and cater for individual dietary requirements.

Private parties

StarBistro at Royal Crescent is ideal for all kinds of parties and special events. Not only does the venue transform into a great space for up to 60 guests, but we’re fully licensed to serve alcohol and to play live music too.
