Crazy Eights can be found located inside the gorgeous No 131 in Cheltenham. Crazy Eights has been described as the destination for foodies, which has certainly intrigued us, and it was easy to see why after browsing the menu. This restaurant serves up a selection of fine British cuisine, alongside friendly and welcoming service. Guests have the option to dine inside or outside on the front terrace, which is certainly is a popular choice especially during the warmer months of the year. We took the terrace option and suggest you do the same if the sun is shining.

To begin our evening we decided to sip a couple of cocktails, I chose the Made in Cheltenham cocktail, which saw Tanqueray gin mixed with rhubarb, sorrel, agave lime and soda. My partner chose the White Grapefruit Negroni, which was shaken up with Chase GB, suze and lillet blanc. The cocktails were expertly crafted and we thoroughly enjoyed them as we made our menu choices.

For our first course, I chose the Serrano ham which was served with fresh tomato and basil. These fresh flavours made for a simple, yet powerful combination and I was most pleased with my choice. My partner chose the burrata which was served with Isle of Wight tomatoes, avocado and pesto. This dish was actually a personal highlight, with all the flavours being truly beautiful and each one complimenting the other perfectly.

“Most importantly, the cuisine was nothing short of impressive and we cannot wait to return.”

For our main course our decision was easy; we decided to share the 22oz Chateaubriand, which was served with confit garlic, thyme, French fries along with our choice of peppercorn sauce. We also added sides of balsamic roasted beetroot and buttered summer greens. The meat was cooked to perfection and each mouthful was equally as delicious as the next.

We simply couldn’t pass on dessert, so I chose the vanilla burnt cream served with fresh rhubarb. This was a fantastic British take on the crème brûlée. My partner chose the hot chocolate pudding served with vanilla ice cream, which was highly indulgent and failed to disappoint.

We also enjoyed a bottled of the 2013, Domaine de la Janasse, Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Tradition, Rhone, France, alongside our meal, which was easy drinking and made for the perfect accompaniment.

Overall we had a fantastic evening at Crazy Eights. The service was prompt and friendly for the duration of the evening, and the location is wonderful being right at the heart of Cheltenham. Most importantly, the cuisine was nothing short of impressive and we cannot wait to return.
