The Court Brasserie at Stonehouse Court Hotel combines the classic charm of the 17th Century Manor with contemporary and informal modern European cuisine, using local ingredients across a seasonal menu, alongside an extensive wine list.

The restaurant takes its name from the properties historical ‘Justices Room’, where local administration of public justice took place during the 19th century, often presided over by a regional magistrate.
Despite this, we can assure you the staff nowadays are considerably less judgmental.

Our Brasserie Menu is served daily from 12:00 - 21:00.

Reservations are recommended. Please call 01453 794 950 for more information."

Very good atmosphere and so nice to see people enjoying a meal but felt safe that our children could be somewhere on the grounds but not disturbing anyone else.

Unfortunately my booking never happened as an error was made at Stonehouse Court 🙁, booked a special Afternoon Tea for my Daughters 21st Birthday, had the confirmation & when we arrived there was no one there !
A lovely lady came out though & profusely apologised , saying the booking manager had made an error , we were so disappointed, our afternoon ruined ☹️

We always enjoy coming to the Stonehouse Court ( we are very local to the Hotel). The biggest disappointment is the high price. I've spoken to many locals that are put off by the high price of drinks and food. £17 for a ploughmans is at the top end of local prices for sure.

We attended for an Afternoon Tea (3 of us). Was extremely disappointed in the quantity of the tea for 3 people, very expensive for what we received. 3 tiny thin sandwiches and 3 cakes. Not worth the money in my opinion, even though it was tasty was not good value for money. I visited another hotel in Cheltenham and literally received twice the amount of food with champagne at their Afternoon Tea. Won't return.

Over all had a great meal, setting lovely and service good, only bad point was the cheese board at the end of the meal. Cheese was priced individually or three pieces for £15, we went for the latter deciding to share it as I only wanted a small amount anyway which was a good thing! The portions whilst tasty were very small, two types of crackers (small portions again) one of them tasted like chocolate-not pleasant and a few balsamic pickled onions. I think they were trying to be too fancy, a good portion of cheese, some normal crackers and chutney or relish would have been much better!
On the whole though very enjoyable.

The young lady who served our food was superb. The food was generally OK, but the steak and the fish appeared to have a little more salt than was necessary. The main downside was standing in the doorway, waiting to be seated, whilst the lady was involved in a conversation with people already seated. If that made us feel uncomfortable, the same lady talked with the same customers at breakfast, after they had come into the Brasserie after us! We felt a bit like second class citizens.

We felt the menu prices didn’t reflect the quality of the food and felt it was overpriced. I ordered Cajun chicken which said it came with jalapeños when it came it was a chicken burger with bacon and cheese not what I was expecting and very disappointing as I do not like burgers. I didn’t want to spoil my friends meal so I ate some of it. On checking the menu on the website when we got home there was no Cajun chicken only the burger so I think we were given an old menu in the restaurant. I did mention to the waitress that it wasn’t what I was expecting and said she would mention it to the manager but offered no explanation. We were also charged 10% service charge added to the bill, we were only a party of 4 and although it was optional we felt obliged to pay it so as not to cause offence.
The hotel offers itself as up market, I was very disappointed and would not recommend eating there to a friend.

We had a wonderful experience on Mothering Sunday. The staff were very busy but were wonderfully supportive of our family. The meal was superb (fabulous beef), the sweets very tempting and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much for making my day. Our family is always a challenge but Stonehouse Court was marvellous

The food and the set up was fine, but it took over 2 hours for us to be served a main course and desert in the evening (and we had our 9 year old daughter with us) which was just too long and made the evening a disappointment. There were not enough staff on. It a nice place but this has put us off, and I wouldn't go back at the moment

The Brasserie is a charming room. The menu is good and varied with a range of starters plus the opportunity to choose a selection of small plates. The mains range from a choice of steaks to fish and steak and ale pie. A good - but smaller - selection of deserts.
The wine list is fairly extensive with a good choice of wines by the glass.

Dinner was excellent. Burger one of the best I have had in a long time.
Breakfast was OK. The menu says it is cooked to order, but I would think mine was all taken off a warming plate. Tasty but overcooked including a hard poached egg. Service was excellent with al, staff very helpful.
