Catching the Elevator to New Heights at the Nook on Five.

Think of Cheltenham and the picture in your mind is probably Regency era buildings and cozy venues tucked away on elegant boulevards. Think again!

In 2020 a very tired 1970s tall office building received an overhaul. The Quadrangle is now an ultra modern 5 storey building festooned with eateries bordering manicured Imperial Gardens on one side and the famous Parade on the other. The fifth floor was a whole new addition and £1.5M later Ed Surman and his mother have cooked up a light filled spacious open plan restaurant with stunning sweeping views from the terrace of the town and beyond.

The chef Alisha Philpotts (cousin to the above mentioned ED) focuses on blending modern British sustainably sourced dishes with classic French cuisine. She claims you have a view of the majority of her suppliers and as we gathered on a very sunny day in October we soaked up the rays peering out as far as the Malvern Hills and as close as Montpelier sipping perfectly chilled Pere Ventura NV Cuvee Classic Cava an atmosphere of anticipation built. We were not disappointed. The menu and wine pairings lived up to our expectations.

Echoes of we will return, resonated from members and guests around the room. We heartily recommend catching the elevator to new heights at the Nook on Five.
